COVID19 thromboprophylaxis practice survey in France

Abstract : Introduction: hospitalized patients with coronavirus seems to have a higher rate of venous thromboembolism event (VTE) than other hospitalized patients. Scientific societies proposed different models of COVID thromboprophylaxis. The aim of this work is to identify the recommendations applied in practice in France, in intensive care unit (ICU) and in hospitalization, the variables taken into account, the official recommendation most followed. Material and methods: we recovered protocols used in practice from SFMV and AMEVAH members. Formatting of the recovered data into tables adapted to the practice of ICU or Non-ICU, answering the question: “Does the protocol of this service take this data into account: Yes or No?“ Results: more than 90% of protocols recovered gave a recommendation for increased thromboprophylaxis. Less than 25% of protocols had recommendations on the place of mechanical compression and, less than 48% had post hospital strategy. Seven parameters had a recommendation in more than 50% of protocols. Discussion: we suggest to add local recommendations on post hospitalization strategy. The mostly used official recommendation was GIHP/GFHT, taken up by the SFAR. This recommendation has often been more simplified (summary table only). Many differences in official recommendations, responsible for a great heterogeneity in the protocols used in practice.
