Since the onset of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic in 2020, more than 5500 patients with the disease have been treated in Charité hospital; more than 2500 patients have been admitted to intensive care units. Throughout the course of the pandemic, therapeutic strategies have changed over time. In this project our goal is to identify and evaluate specific parameters and characteristics that predict certain outcomes in severely affected COVID-19 patients on the ICU, such as mortality or duration of mechanical ventilation.
Objective and approach
We think that analyses of critically ill COVID-19 patients in their clinical course over time on the ICU has the potential to deliver valuable insight into the specific characteristics of the disease. In this view, the results may help to improve critical care and might facilitate resource allocation during the pandemic.
Innovations and perspectives
On this background, the intensivists if Charité hospitals are collaborating to build up the „COVID Intensive Care Data Hub“, which contains structured and detailed data of all COVID-19 patients that have been treated on the intensive care units of the Charité hospital. The overall aim is to enable widespread and extensive scientific studies and projects on the basis of this unique data platform.
