ABSTRACT
The association between severe coronavirus disease 2019 and hypercoagulable state was observed in many reports. This may be explained by the presence of hypoxia, severe systemic inflammatory response, immobilization due to intensive care unit (ICU) admission, and diffuse intravascular coagulation. We report three patients who were admitted to our respiratory ICU with acute severe respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) requiring mechanical ventilation due severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 infection, who developed severe limb ischemia during the course of the disease.
