    A new article is published in Journal of Internal Medicine.

    The article is entitled: Low anti‐SARS‐CoV‐2 S antibody levels predict increased mortality and dissemination of viral components in the blood of critical COVID‐19 patients.

    In this article we studied the impact of antiSARS-CoV-2 S antibodies levels on survival, viral RNA-load in plasma, and N-antigenaemia in 92 COVID-19 patients over ICU admission. The corresponding author is Dr Antoni Torres.

    The article is entitled: The evolution of the ventilatory ratio is a prognostic factor in mechanically ventilated COVID-19 ARDS patients.

    In this study comparing changes in parameters between day 1 and day 3 of mechanical ventilation in COVID-19 ARDS patients, a higher ventilatory ratio at day 1 and more importantly an increase in the ratio by day 3 were significant predictors of in-hospital mortality. The significance of this finding is not completely understood but might reflect vascular microthrombosis phenomena and/or alveolar edema, factors associated with increased physiologic dead space. The first co-authors are Antoni Torres and Anna Motos.

    The article is entitled: Prediction of ventilator-associated pneumonia outcomes according to the early microbiological response: a retrospective observational study.

    This article talks about that follow-up cultures on day 3 after a VAP diagnosis can help the clinician stratify patients. Those patients who present early with superinfection have
    worse ICU mortality, worse 90-day mortality and require more days of mechanical
    ventilation. The first author is Dr Adrian Ceccato
