These leading critical care specialists at academic centers and major hospitals have formed the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Working Group. Based on available research, the experience in China reflected by the Shanghai expert commission, and their decades-long professional experiences in Intensive Care Units around the country, these experts have since developed the MATH+ COVID-19 Early Treatment Protocol for patients presenting with low oxygen rates, breathing difficulties, or other symptoms of the disease in hospitals. The five critical care experts have since been joined by other physicians, who recognize the value of their protocol and are assisting in getting word of it out to help other doctors, hospitals, medical, and governmental officials save lives during this extraordinary pandemic. MATH+ is designed for use earlier in the disease course. The results achieved to date with this more aggressive treatment approach for COVID-19 have lead the group to predict that early adoption of MATH+ will reduce ICU admissions, obviate the need for mechanical ventilators, and most importantly, save the lives of many who would not likely survive on supportive care.
