Some patients with COVID-19 infections develop severe pneumonia and require oxygen and respiratory therapy, including mechanical ventilation, contributing to stress on the medical system and a global social problem. Suppressing the immunoinflammatory response induced by SARS-CoV-2 has been found to be an important treatment for patients with COVID-19 infections. At the same time, we are required to provide appropriate oxygen and respiratory therapy that does not damage the patient's lungs until the immunoinflammatory response is cured. It is important to appropriately apply physiologic knowledge and evidence for oxygen and respiratory therapy that has been accumulated in patients with respiratory failure due to causes other than COVID-19.
