This review article details important considerations in providing critical care to patients with COVID-19.

Initial reports gave us reason to believe that about 5% of proven infections required critical care. Given how infectious the virus is, critical care will be needed in great amounts. Hospitals and health care systems will be challenged. In areas of China without enough capacity, case-fatality rates were seven times higher (2.9% versus 0.4%).

This article reviews critical care for patients with COVID-19, including:

  • Factors Associated With Requiring Intensive Care
  • Differentiating From Other Diseases
  • Clinical Management and Outcomes
  • Protecting Patients and Health Care Workers
  • Surge Preparation
  • Major Knowledge Gaps
