Groundbreaking study of hospitalized COVID-19 and influenza patients charts new path in critical care research
Severe Acute Respiratory Infection – Preparedness (SARI-PREP) is a groundbreaking new research platform from SCCM’s Discovery, the Critical Care Research Network, that is leading the way in revolutionizing how critical care research is conducted in the United States. It will inform clinical management of patients with severe acute respiratory infection (SARI) and help ensure that health systems are better prepared for future pandemics.
SARI-PREP is a prospective multicenter observational study that assesses patients hospitalized with SARI, whether due to COVID-19, influenza A or B, or other viral infections. The multicenter study is funded by the CDC Foundation and coordinated by Discovery. It encompasses 15 hospital sites throughout the United States, which have enrolled more than 700 patients since March 10, 2020, most of whom have COVID-19.
The study looks at severe respiratory illness broadly, building an infrastructure that lays the groundwork for improving clinical care through a better understanding of emerging and seasonal respiratory diseases and their treatments. Researchers collect detailed information about patients hospitalized for SARI, including biologic samples such as blood, sputum, nasal swabs, and urine during multiple time points in their hospital stays, as well as data on levels of hospital system stress.
The study aims to:
