Every year, tens of millions of patients are admitted to intensive care because of a life-threatening condition. However, from one hospital to the next there are discrepancies in practices and performances that can increase mortality by heart failure and increase the risk of nosocomial infection considerably.
We created 101 to take the randomness – and injustice – out of the equation, in order to guarantee that each patient receives precise medical care, and maximise the chances of survival and full recovery.
We achieve these goals through a network of international intensive care centers around the world, by collecting data and making them quickly available to the entire network.
Our objective is to save lives. Simply put, our strategy involves:
Medical reanimation or resuscitation is a specialty that was little known to the general public until recently. Now we have a huge collective responsibility, and the COVID-19 epidemic is putting all intensive care units under increased pressure.
COVID-19 coronavirus infections can lead to viral pneumonia and acute respiratory failure, which require artificial ventilation in ICU (intensive care unit) beds. There is no specific and effective antiviral treatment available today. Patient survival depends on the quality of symptomatic treatment in ICU. There are real differences between centers and there is an urgent need to improve the management of infected patients. So we can make a real difference here.
The Endowment Fund 101 is in a unique position to save lives during the epidemic because:
The partnership with and support from AXA is therefore significant because it will enable us to deploy the training programs, implement the clinical research program, and develop the artificial intelligence algorithms that will help us predict the occurrence of complications that could prolong hospitalization or lead to death in these patients. This is crucial in our quest to adapt available resources to this type of situation.
#AXASolidarityResponse : AXA is launching a global solidarity challenge for its employees to strengthen it support to 101 Fund.
Through AXA Hearts in Action, its international volunteer program, AXA is launching with 101 Fund a global solidarity challenge on social media to enable all its employees to support 1,200 intensive care units in 60 countries.
