Based on recently published articles, this review provides detailed and feasible recommendations for the primary anesthesiologists on infection prevention in operating room during COVID-19 disease outbreak.

Abstract:

A novel coronavirus that emerged in late 2019 rapidly spread around the world. Most severe cases need endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation, and some mild cases may need emergent surgery under general anesthesia. The novel coronavirus was reported to transmit via droplets, contact and natural aerosols from human to human. Therefore, aerosol-producing procedures such as endotracheal intubation and airway suction may put the healthcare providers at high risk of nosocomial infection. Based on recently published articles, this review provides detailed feasible recommendations for primary anesthesiologists on infection prevention in operating room during COVID-19 outbreak.

Key words: COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, infection control precaution, perioperative management, anesthesia machine, disinfection
