There have been significant developments in the understanding of COVID-19 critical illness. The evidence-base for care and management is also building rapidly, as researchers report the findings of their work. The Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine and the Intensive Care Society (UK) have collated and curated this in their fantastic updated guidelines.
