“As providers look for real-world evidence to improve outcomes for critically-ill patients with COVID-19, it’s important that we convene and speed access to communication from the front lines of care,” said Daniel J. Goldstein, MD, FACS, FACC, of Montefiore Medical Center. “One of the many clinical challenges we are facing is to look at what we are learning about cardio-pulmonary-renal management and this group of experienced physicians can share what they are observing in their patients.”

“Our dedication to helping treat patients during this pandemic continues to drive the decision we are making,” said John Erb, CEO of CHF Solutions. “We have been hearing from distinguished physicians that our ultrafiltration therapy has aided in the treatment of patients with COVID-19. Our hope is that sharing these patient case studies from treating physicians will equip other providers with information that will help them provide the best possible care during this unprecedented time.”
