May 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Date: Thursday, May 28
Time: 2-3PM EST / 11AM-12PM PST
The Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC) released Guidelines on the Management of Critically Ill Adults with Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) on March 20, 2020. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) issued COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines on April 21, 2020 which are based on the SSC COVID-19 Guidelines. In a study from Wuhan, China more than half of patients with COVID-19 reported complications including sepsis, ARDs, acute cardiac injury, acute kidney injury, and secondary infection. This webinar will present an overview of the typical clinical progression of COVID-19. The new guidelines will be reviewed that address infection control, laboratory diagnosis/specimens, hemodynamic and ventilatory support, and drug therapy. The recommendations for patients needing critical care will be discussed along with their application in clinical practice.
