Abstract

Paediatric anaesthetists have an important role to play in the management of patients suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19. In many institutions, the COVID-19 intubation teams are staffed with anaesthetists as the proceduralists working throughout the hospitals also in the ICU and Emergency Departments. As practitioners who perform aerosol generating procedures involving the airway, we are at high risk of exposure to the virus SARS-CoV-2 and need to ensure we are well-prepared and trained to manage such cases. This article reviews the relevant paediatric literature surrounding COVID-19 and summarises the key recommendations for anaesthetists involved in the care of children during this pandemic.
