COVID-19: What’s Next: A Deeper Dive into Top Sessions

COVID-19: What’s Next, the first-of-its kind virtual conference hosted by the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM), featured the newest research findings, epidemiologic models, and guideline updates for caring for patients with COVID-19 from specialists on the front lines.


Augmenting Critical Care Capacity During A Disaster

In a medical context, the term surge capacity refers to a healthcare delivery system’s ability to rapidly accommodate an increased demand for services under extenuating circumstances. The 3 most commonly identified components of surge capacity are staff, stuff (equipment, supplies, and pharmaceuticals), and space (room to accommodate patients, providers, and equipment).


PPE Strategies for the COVID-19 Era

The supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) has been uncertain since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Months into this healthcare crisis, supply chains are unpredictable as reports of shortages continue. Follow these key strategies for managing PPE.


COVID-19 Response

Resources for healthcare professionals responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Disaster Triage and Allocation of Scarce Resources

When disaster strikes, effective management of resources can significantly influence the overall outcome of the response. If the number of victims and the complexity of their injuries are low and resources are abundant, resource allocation will have little impact on the disaster outcome. However, if there is a high number of victims with complex injuries and available resources are limited, how those resources are used will determine the outcome for some individuals.


Disaster and Emergency Resources

SCCM assists the critical care community during disasters and emergencies by providing resources and updates and is actively responding to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak.
