Interpreting the Results

New Admissions

This chart presents the projected number of new admissions for COVID-19 to the health system per day by patient category. The blue line represents patients hospitalized that day. The orange line represents patients beginning to be treated in the ICU that day. Some of the ICU patients receive ventilator care – the red line depicts the number of patients beginning to receive ventilator care that day. For example, on day thirty, we expect 50 new patients requiring hospitalization (blue line). Of all of the COVID-19 patients in the hospital at that time, 15 begin receiving intensive care (orange line), and 10 begin on a ventilator (red line), the total number of expected new admissions to the hospital is 50.

This chart only includes COVID-19 patients.

Admitted Patients

This chart presents the projected total patient census for COVID-19 at the health system per day by patient category. The blue line represents all hospitalized patients, including med/surg and ICU, whether ventilated or not. The ICU figures (orange line) include patients in the ICU not requiring a ventilator as well as ventilated patients (red line). As an example, on day thirty, we expect to have 280 patients hospitalized (blue line), including 110 patients in an ICU (orange line), with 80 of the ICU patients requiring ventilation. The total number of patients is 280.
