The news about the incredible impact of steroids on COVID-19 survival is truly remarkable. The work of researchers at The University of Oxford and the National Institute of Health Reserach must be commended. A truly marvelous discovery for all humankind.

Those centers like in NY with sudden large volumes of COVID-19 patients are seeing very much higher rates of thrombosis both arterial and venous -

Dear Damian - pls bear in mind that I never tweet medical advice. I hope you will decipher the intent and deeper message in my tweet as regards our observations in a very busy COVID-ICU service in NY that led to a change in practice.

Please check DDimers in patients daily or every two days as the rise in DDimer is rapid - the issue of systemic anticoagulation may reduce mortality - pls disseminate widely to all front line physicians -

The Italian hospital doctors had been giving formal anticoagulation to COVID19 patients to prevent complications - based on our observations of complications after 150+ ICU patients we are doing the same when elevated DDimer (>1000)- pls disseminate to ICU doctors

Hands on CPR - is studied in out of hospital settings but may not be suitable for COVID-19 pneumonia as oxygen is essential. Consider LMA devices or early intubation. Finally be aware that many cases may be due to pulmonary emboli and treat appropriately and early if suspected.

There is some evidence (and referred to also in the American Heart Association guidelines) that higher doses of epinephrine (> 1mg) may enhance likelihood of restarting the heart... which might enhance the chance of recovery and also limit exposure of health care workers

Cardiac arrest needs to be organized differently. Devices are needed (3-5/site) that are stored on a cart and delivered to the scene of the arrest within a few minutes. This limits the number of staff needed in the room and thus the exposure of health care workers to COVID19.

A message regarding cardiac arrest management in COVID-19 subjects. As you all know NY has seen a very large case load of patients. For those in charge of organizing resuscitation services, I recommend establishing mechanical CPR devices at your institutions.
