An application has been developed to calculate the probability of a patient with severe COVID-19 requiring intubation in an ICU

Researchers from the Hospital Clínic-IDIBAPS have developed a calculator to predict the probability of COVID-19 patients with acute respiratory failure requiring intubation. The initiative was carried out after assessing the viability of less invasive strategies as an alternative to intubation in these patients.
