Abstract

The recent COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic is causing an increase in the number of patients who, due to their pulmonary ventilatory status, may require orotracheal intubation. COVID-19 infection has demonstrated a high rate of transmissibility, especially via the respiratory tract and by droplet spread. The Spanish Society of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery, based on the article by Wei et al. (2003) regarding tracheotomies performed due to severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), has made a series of recommendations for the safe performance of tracheotomies.

Resumen

La reciente pandemia por coronavirus COVID-19 está incrementando el número de pacientes que, debido a su situación ventilatoria pulmonar, pueden requerir de intubación orotraqueal. La infección por coronavirus COVID-19 ha demostrado una alta tasa de transmisibilidad, sobre todo por vía respiratoria y por dispersión de microgotas. La Sociedad Española de Otorrinolaringología y Cirugía de Cabeza y Cuello, basándose en el artículo de Wei et al. de 2003 en relación con las traqueotomías realizadas por el síndrome respiratorio agudo grave (SARS), realiza una serie de recomendaciones para la realización segura de las traqueotomías.
