Pregnant women with COVID-19 are more likely to be admitted to the ICU and require invasive mechanical ventilation or venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VV-ECMO). Nevertheless, only a few case series have focused on ventilatory management and outcomes of pregnant women with COVID-19 admitted to the ICU.

COVIDPREG study primarily aimed to assess the ventilatory management of pregnant women with COVID-19 admitted to ICU. Secondly, the study aimed to evaluate obstetric management and report maternal and neonatal outcomes.

Listen to Dr Mathieu Jozwiak for more insights from this study.
