Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne – Draft guideline for management for a patient with COVID-19, or known or suspected SARS-Co-2 infection.

This has been put together by Karen Sullivan, theatre nurse educator and the OR Management Group at RCH. As with all things COVID-19 this is subject to change and will need finessing! There is still some detail lacking, especially with regards to management of the theatre pressure and air-conditioning. For the moment leave theatre pressure and air conditioning un-changed until we get definitive advice.    Key principles: stick with current case definition, induction in theatre, recovery in theatre and adhere to infection control guidelines.
