This clinical guidance provides contemporary information on the care of critically ill adult patients with COVID-19 to practising clinicians at the bedside. Version 3 updates the previous NHS England guideline published on 8 April 2020.
NHS England have now passed responsibility for clinical guidelines related to COVID-19 to relevant professional bodies, which for this guideline are the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine (FICM) and Intensive Care Society (ICS). This document will be updated at regular intervals during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Please always refer to the most up-to-date version, which will be available on the four organisations (Association of Anaesthetists, FICM, ICS, Royal College of Anaesthetists) hub.
