The WeVent team came together to create this respiratory management protocol to help us take care of patients with COVID-19.

Looking at the paper from WeVent on COVID

This is a great review of 45 references to help us take care of patients with COVID-19. There is much left to be learned about this horrendous disease, but we can take cues from prior experience to help us guide our management of the ventilator to cause as little harm as possible. The group of experts listed above, using their multinational expertise, developed this evolving document including algorithms as well as guidelines that will be updated as we learn more. Best of all, it’s free to us all. Thank you!
