4-2-2020: As he promised, Dr. Farkas has been continually updating his COVID 19 chapter. And his most recent revision was on 3-29-2020. You can download his awesome post as a PDF to your phone or tablet. The links in this post will still take you to Dr. Farkas most recent revision.
In this post I link to Dr. Josh Farkas‘ outstanding COVID-19* article, revised March 29, 2020 From The Internet Book Of Critical Care. [Link is to the Table of Contents.]
*This article is so great that literally every clinician (physician, nurse, pharmacist, NP, PA, EMT, and Paramedic) should completely review this resource.
Note to myself: When I review this post again, along with this chapter, I need to reread all the related great links within the chapter.
