AHA Releases Interim Guidance On CPR And Emergency CV Care In COVID-19 Patients

The American Heart Association (AHA) has released an interim guidance for CPR and emergency CV care for patients with known or suspected coronavirus (COVID-19) infection to help reduce the risk for transmission of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. When COVID-19 is suspected in a patient needing emergency transport, prehospital care providers and healthcare facilities should be notified in advance that they may be caring for, transporting, or receiving a patient who may have COVID-19 infection," the document says.
