Conventional oxygen therapy is often insufficient to meet the significant oxygen needs of a patient with COVID-19 pneumonia. Several options for providing enhanced oxygen delivery have been studied throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, including:
- High-flow nasal cannula
- Noninvasive ventilation Proning
- Neuromuscular blockade
- Positive end-expiratory pressure strategies
- Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation
This webcast held on November 10, 2021, reviewed how some of these strategies are of particular use in patients with COVID-19 who have profound hypoxic respiratory failure.
