Around 250 patients have been admitted to covid-IVA in the Jönköping County region’s three hospitals in Eksjö, Värnamo and Jönköping.
Fredrik Hammarskjöld and his colleagues in the region have collected data on all patients, including age, weight and previous illnesses. This, together with an analysis of which treatments the patients have received and how they have gone for them, will provide important information about what has worked well and what needs to be improved in IVA care of covid patients.
– It will be very exciting and educational to get more knowledge to be able to improve care further. We do not expect covid-19 to end this summer, says Fredrik Hammarskjöld, chief physician at Ryhov County Hospital.
Fredrik and his colleagues will do more research due to covid care in the county. See fact box below.
