In 2020, the World Health Organization described the SARS-CoV-2 virus (severe acute respiratory distress syndrome [ARDS]) for the first time. Millions of people were affected by the COVID virus worldwide, and many of them lost their lives too. Our center was also one health-care center that has played a significant role in managing severe ARDS patients secondary to COVID-19 infection. We want to outline the challenges faced by the respiratory therapist in managing a 24-year-old morbidly obese young male with severe ARDS due to COVID-19.
