Crisis Management, Hematology,
From Critical Care Explorations
In this Letter to the Editor, the authors describe their experience with a series of eight patients receiving adjunct therapeutic plasma exchange for severe coronavirus disease pneumonia complicated by sepsis with multiple organ dysfunction in which C-reactive protein and ferritin levels significantly decreased with therapeutic plasma exchange, whereas D-dimer decreased to a lesser degree. Sequential Organ Failure Assessment scores also improved although the clinical impact could not be be assessed due to lack of controls.
