    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: Ventilatory Management for COVID-Related Respiratory Failure

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: Ventilatory Management for COVID-Related Respiratory Failure

    Management of COVID-19-related respiratory failure differs from what is necessary for ARDS. Rather than having alveolar edema, COVID-19 patients have pulmonary vascular dysregulation. Gas exchange is severely compromised with little reduction in lung compliance. Ventilatory support for COVID-19 patients requires higher than normal tidal volumes with minimal PEEP and allowance for higher than usual serum CO2 levels. How the unique pathophysiology of respiratory failure should be treated is discussed by John J. Marini, MD, professor of medicine at the University of Minnesota.

Very Good

Very fun and interesting content. I am a 3rd year medical student, and I really enjoy the historical perspectives and the broad overviews of the the topics coupled with detailed information. The production quality and scripts are also very well done. I think JAMA Clinical Reviews has mastered the Conversational style of instruction. Keep up the good work.
