Corona Virus disease (COVID19) in Very Elderly
Intensive care Patients (VIPs)

A multinational, multicenter study of outcomes and prognostic factors in coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in very old intensive care patients.
The coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 is currently affecting thousands of patients across many countries and there is an urgent need to investigate patient characteristics and outcome trajectories.
The VIP network which has previously (2016-2019) conducted the most extensive prospective studies (VIP1, VIP2) on elderly ICU patients, has immediately deployed this study of elderly COVID19 patients starting now.
