#C/f COVID19

#Fever, cough

#Acute Hypoxemic Respiratory Failure

Ddx: COVID vs other viral pneumonia vs bacterial pna

*** Overall patient's respiratory status appears to be worsening given increased oxygenation requirements.

Suspicion of COVID high due to:

-Clinical syndrome (fever, fatigue, dry cough, anorexia, myalgias, dyspnea, sputum production).





-Elevated D-dimer

-Less likely bacterial pneumonia given low procal, but will cover for community acquired pneumonia for 24-48h


[ ] f/u SARS-COV2 PCR

- Admission studies should include: CBC, CMP, LDH, CRP, D-dimer, Ferritin, Tn, CPK, procal, EKG

- F/u viral markers (Influenza A, B, RSV, Adenovirus, human metapneumovirus PCR, rhinovirus, parainfluenza)

- ID consult for consideration of enrollment in clinical trial/s


- Maintain O2 sat 92-96%

- Avoid aerosolized treatments, humidified O2, and NIPPV; use inhalers instead of nebs if bronchodilators needed. Can use regular NC, Venturi mask, oxymizer, or nonrebreather. If continues to decline, proceed with intubation.

- Avoid maintenance IVF or boluses where possible, favor conservative fluid management.

- Antibiotics:

- S/p *** in the ED

- Will treat for CAP: ceftriaxone 1g q24h + doxycycline 100mg bid

- Symptomatic treatment with: Tessalon pearls, Robitussin PRN, Tylenol PRN

- Strict isolation per COVID protocol

- WHO and CDC recommend glucocorticoids not be used in patients with COVID-19 pneumonia unless there are other indications (eg, exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)

- Update family as frequently as possible; they have been advised to stay out of the hospital given exposure risk.

-GOC discussed with patient, focusing on realistic goals for prognosis amidst COVID pandemic ***.

DVT Ppx: {IP DVT PROPHYLAXIS:22062} (Increased risk of risk of DVT with COVID).
