When a patient presents with dyspnea how can we reliably predict who will progress to respiratory failure? How can phenotypes of disease progression be utilized for optimizing selection of treatment modalities? Dr. Alex Niven discusses Fleischner Society recommendations for imaging as a COVID-19 screening tool, cytokine storm, ventilator-associated lung injury, post-ICU care syndrome, and humanity in critical care.
