Supplemental oxygen requirements were recorded from patient records. Data were collected at the time closest to when the patient received the study medication and 24 and 48 h following study dosage. Supplemental oxygen was recorded as none (room air), nasal cannula, and high-flow (HF) devices and mechanical ventilation. Patients randomized to ticagrelor demonstrated a progression to room air and away from supplemental oxygen (odds ratio [OR]: 1.08; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.01 to 1.15). Patients randomized to placebo did not change over 48 h after receiving the study dose (OR: 0.99; 95% CI: 0.95 to 1.04).
