Pandemic in practice: Impact of viral variance, hyperinflammation and vaccinations on COVID-19 outcomes


Sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline
Live and available on-demand
Monday, May 17, 12 - 1 p.m. EDT | Open to all attendees
Topic: COVID-19

Add to My Calendar

This medical symposium will educate attendees on the drivers of COVID-19 in the community, and the factors that contribute to disease progression in hospital. Join us for an exploration of practice management in mild, moderate, severe and critical cases.

Dr. Robert Gottlieb will explore the impact of vaccination campaigns and viral variants on both incidence and severity of disease, while Dr. Deepa Gotur will discuss the role of GMCSF in Hyperinflammation in the Severe COVID Patient.

Speakers:

  • Deepa Bangalore Gotur, MD, Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine, Academic Institute, Weill Cornell Medical College
  • Robert Gottlieb, MD, Board Certified Transplant Cardiologist, Principal investigator of Baylor Scott and White active clinical trials for COVID-19, Baylor Scott & White Health



Using the ROX index to help timing of intubation in patients supported with Nasal High Flow: Why, When and How?

Sponsored by Fisher & Paykel Healthcare
On-demand
Wednesday, May 19, 12 - 1 p.m. EDT | Open to all attendees
Topic: Respiratory Failure

Add to My Calendar

One of the foremost concerns of HFNC use is that it may delay a needed intubation by masking the signs of disease progression. Importantly, this delay has been associated with worse patient outcomes. With the aim of trying to identify patients who will most likely to fail with HFNC and would need to be intubated, we described the use of the ROX index, defined as the ratio between SpO2/FiO2 and respiratory rate. In essence, we reported that HFNC patients with higher ROX index are less likely to require intubation. After this initial description, we validated these findings in an international multicentric study. Moreover, in this second study, we also elucidated different thresholds of the ROX index to identify higher risk for intubation among HFNC patients. In this presentation, we will 1) review the derivation, validation, and application of the ROX index; 2) describe the implementation of the ROX index; and 3) evaluate future application and research opportunities for the use of ROX index.
