Mechanical ventilation and ECMO in elective procedures

Project ID: 2020-024/2021 0950 093 000
Type of Response: Research report or technical brief
Knowledge User: St. Michael’s Hospital – Ontario Critical Care COVID Command Centre
ICES Scientists: Beate Sander
Summary: This study is interested in ascertaining a specific indicator detailing the use of mechanical ventilation and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) to assist with the monitoring of COVID-19 patients in the ICU. This indicator will provide a detailed breakdown of the specific type of intervention that was applied to a patient. The data collected will be used to inform decision makers such as the ICU drug task force on the long- and short-term demand for drugs and to help predict potential drug shortages at the hospital level.
Status: Completed
