We read with interest the article by Foster and colleagues.1 The authors discussed a novel approach to reducing the transmission of novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) during tracheostomy. In this scenario, an anesthesiologist plays a very important role in incorporating various methods that can reduce aerosolization of secretion during tracheostomy. We would like to add some maneuvers by which aerosol formation and transmission can be further reduced: intravenous glycopyrrolate before tracheostomy for suspected or confirmed COVID-19 patients facilitates drying of secretion and decreases the risk of exposure to aerosols,2...

ConclusionThe goal of the guidelines is to make the procedure safer for medical teams, without harming the patients. Further improvements of the guidelines will surely appear as COVID-19 is a new entity and there is not yet much experience in handling it.

THE coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has devastated the world. About 15% of infected patients need intensive care.1 A small proportion of these patients could benefit from extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO).2 Performing a tracheostomy on these patients is considered to be a high-risk aerosol-generating procedure, with implications for staff safety.3 Guidelines to mitigate the risks associated with tracheostomy in COVID patients4 have not reported actual experience but delay of the procedure.

The ongoing pandemic coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) infection causes severe respiratory dysfunction and has become an emergent issue for worldwide healthcare. Since COVID-19 spreads through contact and droplet infection routes, careful attention to infection control and surgical management is important to prevent cross-contamination of patients and medical staff. Tracheostomy is an effective method to treat severe respiratory dysfunction with prolonged respiratory management and should be performed as a high-risk procedure

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To analyze the clinical characteristics of patients with severe or critical coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) receiving tracheal intubation. METHODS: We analyzed clinical characteristics of 18 severely or critically ill patients with COVID-19 undergoing tracheal intubation. The general demographic and clinical data of the patients including their age, gender, pre- intubation state of consciousness and the ventilation mode were recorded. The anesthesiologists performing the tracheal intubation procedure evaluated and recorded the tracheal intubation conditions of the patients. The changes...
