Consensus guidelines for managing the airway in children with COVID-19; Highlighting differences in practice from adult guidelines

Airway management of patients with COVID-19 is high risk to staff and patients. Guidance has been published directed at adult practice. The vast majority of this guidance is also applicable to paediatric patients. This consensus statement provides advice for anaesthetists who undertake airway management in paediatric patients suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19 and seeks to provide clarity where that guidance differs for paediatric patients. It is not directly relevant to neonatal practice in neonatal ICUs (NICUs). This document does not stand alone as advice but should be read with the adult advice [1] at
