Clinical management of severe acute respiratory infections when novel coronavirus is suspected: What to do and what not to do

    Publication year: 2014

    This interim guidance document aims to help clinicians with supportive management of patients who have acute respiratory failure and septic shock as a consequence of severe infection. Because other complications have been seen (renal failure, pericarditis, DIC, as above) clinicians should monitor for the development of these and other complications of severe infection and treat them according to local management guidelines.
