First published in 2020, this toolkit is intended for clinicians working in acute care, managing adult and paediatric patients with acute respiratory infection, including severe pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome, sepsis and septic shock. The main objective is to provide key tools for use in the care of critically ill patients – from hospital entry to hospital discharge.

The 2022 updated version includes new tools and adapted algorithms, checklists, memory aids for COVID-19 and influenza, and the latest clinical evidence regarding clinical management of SARI. It is intended to help clinicians care for SARI patients: from epidemiology of severe acute respiratory infections, screening and triage, infection prevention and control, monitoring of patients, laboratory diagnosis, principles of oxygen therapy and different types of ventilation (invasive and non-invasive), as well as antimicrobial and immunomodulator therapies, to ethical and quality of care assessments.

“Integrated Triage for Ambulatory Settings in the Context of COVID-19” is a novel decision support tool designed to safely and effectively direct all patients who present to the clinical setting to appropriate care in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. This tool presents an algorithm that integrates screening, physical triage and cohorting, and infection prevention and control (IPC) with clinical triage principles to prioritize patients based on acuity. Spanish, French, Arabic and Russian coming soon.

This algorithm is intended to help clinicians at the point of care initiate oral antiviral treatment for COVID-19. Based on efficacy data, nirmatrelvir/ritonavir (NMV/r) is the preferred agent, followed by molnupiravir.

The algorithm was created by USAID Implementing partners EpIC, RISE, STAR-UCSF.
