Anesthesia Management in Cesarean Section for Close Contact Parturient with COVID-19 Patient: A Case Report
Keywords:COVID-19, Caesarean section, Parturient, Spinal anesthesia
During the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) outbreak, which produced a disease that had been termed COVID-19, safely treating patients that have contracted COVID-19 has become a very challenging problem for both patients and healthcare workers alike.
The case we will be dealing with concerns a surgery of a full-term parturient who tested negative for COVID-19 at the time of surgery but had been living with a husband who contracted COVID-19. The parturient was taken up for an elective caesarean section under spinal anesthesia in an isolated operating room.
It is necessary to consider how to manage the patient who was a close contact even if their COVID-19 test result is negative and how to set up the protocols to protect healthcare workers themselves in such situation.
