Our study showed that, ICU treatments may be beneficial for the Covid-19 patients aged 80 years and older. Increased old age, high levels of CRP, PCT, ferritin, and having IMV are detected as poor outcome markers. As a result, we emphasize that ICU treatments should also be considered as an option for the elderly Covid-19 patients.
