Cochrane has published Special Collection of Coronavirus (COVID-19) evidence, relevant to acute and critical care. This is to ensure immediate access to systematic reviews most directly relevant to the management of people hospitalized with severe acute respiratory infections. It includes reviews that are relevant to the WHO interim guidance, and reviews identified as relevant by Cochrane Acute, and Emergency Care informed by Cochrane groups in affected regions.
The Special Collection includes Cochrane Reviews on topics such as fluid and vasopressor therapy; respiratory support and mechanical ventilation; weaning mechanical ventilation; managing hypoxaemia; pharmacological treatment; managing delirium; nutrition in intensive care; and diagnosis.
The Emergency and Critical Care Group published relevant reviews with the scope of treating patients with Covid-19. The group is also involved in several rapid updates, rapid reviews, full reviews, and other initiatives related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our reviews were cited, mentioned in policymakers decisions, Social Media and in Wikipedia.
