Abstract

 

 

The SARS−COV−2 pandemic has created a need for changes in usual cardiopulmonary resuscitation protocols.Тhe aim of this work was to review the available CPR recommendation in COVID−19 suspected patients. Recommendations for cardiopulmonary resuscitation of these patients require changes in terms of exposure reduction of provider,utilization ofoxygenation and ventilation techniques with lower aerosolization risk, as well as utilization of priority model based on considering the appropriateness of initiating and continuing resuscitation.All healthcare workers should use full personal protective equipment and have advanced life support training. Clear guidelines for ensuring timely and effective management of the patients with cardiac arrest with adequate protection of healthcare professionals are crucial in the COVID−19 era.In that way, it is possible to contribute to the preservation of the health care system while providing optimal health care for patients.

Sažetak


Pandemija izazvana SARS−COV−2 stvorila je potrebu za promenama u uobičajenim protokolima za kardiopulmonalnu reanimaciju. Cilj ovog rada bio je pregled dostupnih CPR smernica za COVID−19 suspektne pacijente. Preporuke za kardiopulmonalnu reanimaciju ovih pacijenata zahtevaju promene u pogledu smanjenja ekspozicije zdravstvenog osoblja, korišćenje tehnika oksigenacije i ventilacije sa nižim rizikom aerosolizacije kao i korišćenje modela prioriteta na osnovu razmatranja prikladnosti započinjanja i nastavka reanimacije. Svi zdravstveni radnici treba da koriste kompletnu ličnu zaštitnu opremu i da imaju obuku za napredno održavanje života. U eri COVID−19 pandemije, neophodne su jasne smernice za obezbeđivanje pravovremenog i efikasnog tretmana pacijenata sa srčanim zastojem, a uz adekvatnu zaštitu zdravstvenih radnika. Na taj način je moguće doprineti očuvanju zdravstvenog sistema uz pružanje optimalne zdravstvene zaštite pacijentima.
