Resumen

FERNANDEZ-BUSSY, Sebastián et al. Recommendations for performing interventions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2020, vol.148, n.5, pp.689-696. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872020000500689.

Coronavirus infection (SARS-CoV-2), is a pandemic disease declared by the World Health Organization (WHO). This disease reports a high risk of contagion, especially by the transmission of aerosols in health care workers. In this scenario, aerosol exposure is increased in various procedures related to the airway, lungs, and pleural space. For this reason, it is important to have recommendations that reduce the risk of exposure and infection with COVID-19. In this document, a team of international specialists in interventional pulmonology elaborated a series of recommendations, based on the available evidence to define the risk stratification, diagnostic methods and technical considerations on procedures such as bronchoscopy, tracheostomy, and pleural procedures among others. As well as the precautions to reduce the risk of contagion when carrying out pulmonary interventions.
