Managing ARDS in COVID-19: Optimal Mechanical Ventilation Duration and Clinical Implications

EasyChair Preprint no. 12884

15 pagesDate: April 3, 2024


Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) remains a significant complication in patients with COVID-19 pneumonia, often necessitating mechanical ventilation for respiratory support. Optimal management strategies for ARDS, including the duration of mechanical ventilation, are crucial for improving patient outcomes. This review explores insights into managing ARDS in COVID-19, focusing on the optimal duration of mechanical ventilation and its clinical implications. Factors influencing ventilation duration, such as patient characteristics, disease severity, ventilator settings, and potential complications, are discussed. Additionally, the impact of prolonged mechanical ventilation on patient morbidity and mortality is examined. Strategies to minimize ventilation duration, including lung-protective ventilation strategies, prone positioning, and emerging therapies, are highlighted. Furthermore, the importance of a multidisciplinary approach involving clinicians, respiratory therapists, and critical care teams in optimizing ventilation management is emphasized. Insights from recent studies and clinical experiences provide valuable guidance for healthcare professionals in managing ARDS in COVID-19 patients effectively.
