Patient-clinician interaction

Reimagining Patient-Centered Outcome Measurement: Unlocking New Avenues

The complexity of evaluating outcomes for ICU survivors with critical illness relates to their elevated long-term mortality rates and a significant prevalence of enduring adverse effects after ICU discharge. Patient-centered and family-centered care outcomes are now encouraged as they better align with health care delivery and patient desires.


Association Between Paxlovid and Mortality Rates in Critically Ill Patients With COVID-19 Receiving Invasive Mechanical Ventilation

A new oral antiviral drug, Paxlovid, has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration and might be effective in patients with mild to moderate COVID-19 for reducing mortality and hospitalization rates. This study examines Paxlovid use in critically ill patients with COVID-19 who receive invasive mechanical ventilation.
