An observational study conducted in 5 tertiary hospitals in Singapore examined the characteristics, treatment modalities, clinical outcomes and nutrition interventions of critically ill patients with COVID-19 in the intensive care unit.
Inadequate calories and protein, and late enteral nutrition (>36 hours) was associated with higher hospital mortality. Obesity, frequent usage of neuromuscular blockade, prone therapy, and dialysis had considerable implications on nutritional care. More audits may help refine nutritional interventions and guidelines for this evolving disease.

The rapidly ageing population and enlarging burden of chronic diseases require a proportionate emphasis on health promotion and disease prevention. A health system that is more data-driven and patient-centric, which leverages the innovative use of technology and digital solutions, will be areas warranting research attention and coverage. The Annals invites submission of manuscripts that advance the scientific basis of clinical knowledge, and the practice of medicine in Singapore and internationally. We welcome submissions that address challenges in the management of chronic diseases (e.g. cancer, cardiovascular diseases, ageing, diabetes mellitus and neurological diseases), and use of technology and digital medicine to improve patient care.Papers of sufficient merits will be published. Authors will also be notified if their manuscripts are deemed not suitable for publication.
