Incidence and affecting factors of pulmonary diffusing capacity impairment with COVID-19 survivors 18 months after discharge in Wuhan, China

Studies have showed that long-term sequelae from COVID-19 may affect human respiratory system, cardiovascular system, nervous system, immune system etc. with a negative impact on the patients’ mental health, well-being and quality of life, but the lungs are the organ most likely to sustain serious impairment from COVID-19.

Prolonged progressive hypermetabolism during COVID-19 hospitalization undetected by common predictive energy equations.

Indirect calorimetry (IC) is the gold-standard for determining measured resting energy expenditure (mREE) in critical illness. When IC is not available, predicted resting energy expenditure (pREE) equations are commonly utilized, which often inaccurately predict metabolic demands leading to over- or under-feeding.

Cardiopulmonary exercise testing in COVID-19 patients at 3 months follow-up.

Long-term effects of COVID-19 are of utmost relevance. This study aims to determine the functional capacity of COVID-19 survivors by cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET), the characteristics associated with cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) performance and the safety and tolerability of CPET.

COSMED system (Quark CPET, COSMED, Rome, Italy) with an electronically braked cycle ergometer was used.

Energy requirements of long-term ventilated COVID-19 patients with resolved SARS-CoV-2 infection.

COVID-19 can rapidly progress into acute respiratory distress syndrome accompanied by multi-organ failure requiring invasive mechanical ventilation and critical care treatment.

The effect of indirect calorimetry guided isocaloric nutrition on mortality in critically ill patients—a systematic review and meta-analysis.

The effect of indirect calorimetry guided isocaloric nutrition on mortality in critically ill patients—a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Indirect calorimetry (IC)-guided nutrition might positively affect the clinical outcome of critically ill patients. The objective of this study is to assess the benefit of isocaloric nutrition guided by IC, compared to hypocaloric nutrition, for critically ill patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU).
