Abstract

Since the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, millions of people worldwide have passed away due to critical illness. Intensive care for severe COVID-19 infection remains one of the most important ways to save patients’ lives. In Taiwan, the government-led critical care model and COVID-19 clinical rounds, grand rounds, and chief rounds by experts; critical care guidelines established by the Taiwan Centers for Disease Control and major professional societies; consensus and management recommendations among medical institutes; and research works in the field of critical care constitute the concrete basis of intensive care. This review article briefly summarizes the current achievements of critical care for COVID-19 in Taiwan and recommendations on future directions.
