Respiratory Strategies for Patients with Suspected or Proven COVID-19 Respiratory Failure

Respiratory Strategies for Patients with Suspected or Proven COVID-19 Respiratory Failure

The trial objective is to determine if Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) or High-Flow Nasal Oxygen (HFNO) is clinically effective compared to standard oxygen therapy in patients with confirmed or suspected COVID-19.

The trial is being conducted across approximately 60 hospitals across England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland.

Inpatients at participating hospitals are eligible to participate if they have respiratory failure with suspected or proven COVID-19, and meet all of the inclusion criteria and none of the exclusion criteria.

The primary outcome is a composite outcome comprising tracheal intubation or mortality within 30 days following randomisation.

Secondary outcomes include tracheal intubation rate, time to tracheal intubation, duration of invasive ventilation, mortality rate, time to mortality, length of hospital stay, and length of critical care stay.
