Nutritional risk and clinical outcomes in patients diagnosed with COVID-19 in a high-complexity hospital network

Project Details


The identification of nutritional risk at hospital admission is important to establish timely interventions in the COVID-19 patient care cycle, due to a high risk of it being associated with complications.

This study aims to determine the association between the level of nutritional risk upon admission and in-hospital mortality at 28 days in patients diagnosed with COVID-19 treated between March and October 2020 in two hospital institutions in Colombia.
