In December 2019 a new kind of virus was identified in China as the responsible of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and interstitial pneumonia. Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) quickly spread around the world and in February 2020 became a pandemia in Europe.
No pharmacological treatment is actually licensed for the SARS-CoV2 infection and at the current state of art there is a lack of data about the clinical management of the coronavirus 2019 disease (COVID-19).
The aim of this observational study is to collect the data and the outcomes of COVID-19 patients admitted in the H. Sacco Respiratory Unit treated according to the Standard Operating Procedures and the Good Clinical Practice.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Coronavirus Infections Respiratory Failure Ventilator Lung||Other: standard operating procedures|
All consecutive adult COVID-19 patients admitted to our Respiratory Unit will be enrolled. All demographic, anthropometric, laboratory, radiological, clinical and microbiological data will be collected and analyzed according to the primary and secondary outcomes (see the dedicated section).
During the hospitalization, patients will be treated according to the standard operating procedure of our Respiratory Unit, such as arterial gas analysis, Rx, pharmacological treatment, ventilation. This study is purely observational and no randomization will be performed.
After discharge, patients a 7 days, 30 days and 6 months follow up will be assessed.
|Study Type :||Observational|
|Estimated Enrollment :||50 participants|
|Official Title:||Acute Respiratory Failure and Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Therapy in Patients With Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) Infection: a Real Life Evaluation|
|Actual Study Start Date :||March 19, 2020|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||September 1, 2020|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||December 31, 2020|
All patients admitted to the Respiratory Unit with SARS-CoV-2 infection and respiratory failure
Other: standard operating procedures
standard operating procedures represented by continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy or non invasive ventilation, pharmacological treatment as antiviral and antibiotic drugs, bronchodilators, xanthines, enteral nutrition, hydration.
