A daily checklist for ventilated COVID-19 patients

A checklist for ventilated COVID-19 patients has been designed to be used as a daily ward round. It includes three key steps that will have a big impact to the outcome of patients with COVID-19:

  1. Safe ventilation; ventilating a patient at 6-8ml/kg of IDEAL body weight, and maintaining a PEEP around 10 or higher.
  2. Early use of proning of patients.
  3. Drugs to prevent harm, reducing the risk of DVTs and PEs, mucolytics, early feed.
