Conclusions: Adequate management of AIS patients requiring mechanical thrombectomy during the pandemic is of paramount importance to maximise the benefit of the endovascular procedure. MDT work and familiarity with NORA principles decrease the negative impact of the disease on the clinical outcomes for AIS patients.

Purpose of review Coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) has presented numerous challenges to healthcare systems worldwide. The virus is highly contagious and infectious since transmission can occur via multiple routes. General measures to prevent viral transmission to patients and healthcare personnel, such as a reduction in clinical load and routine testing, must be coupled with multiple additional safety measures in perioperative services. Recent findings Regional anesthesia preserves respiratory function and reduces aerosol-generating procedures typically associated with airway management in general anesthesia, m...

In light of the global shortage of PPE and concerns regarding the safety of healthcare providers, clinicians have resorted to the use of novel protective barriers, such as aerosol boxes and plastic sheets, during aerosol generating procedures, especially tracheal intubation. We compared the effect of these barriers on the tracheal intubation of simulated patients with severe COVID-19 in a crossover study. The study was approved by the ...

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBronchoscopic interventions (BIs) and airway management for bronchoscopy are exceptionally high-risk procedures not only for anesthesiologists, pulmonologists, but also for nursing staff because they expose nurses to COVID-19-containing droplets. However, perioperative changes can be made to the anesthetic management for nonintubated BIs to minimize the spread of COVID-19.PMID:34312013 | DOI:10.1016/j.jfma.2021.07.006

The novel coronavirus pandemic has radically changed the landscape of normal surgical practice. Lifesaving cancer surgery, however, remains a clinical priority and there is an increasing need to fully define the optimal oncological management of patients with varying stages of lung cancer, allowing prioritization of which thoracic procedures should be performed in the current era. Health care providers and managers should not ignore the risk of a bimodal peak of mortality in patients with lung cancer: an imminent spike due to mortality from acute COVID-19 infection and a secondary peak reflecting an excess of cancer-relate...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis review summarizes and provides a comprehensive narrative synthesis of the current evidence on pediatric airway management during the COVID-19 pandemic.Recent FindingsThe safe care of children undergoing airway management is a primary concern for pediatric anesthesiologists. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought challenges related to airway management and the use of personal protective equipment, aerosol barriers, and the need for simulation and intubation teams. The risk of COVID-19 transmission to the health care worker may be lower in children due to the smaller volume of aerosol dispersal. The ...
