“The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has completely altered the healthcare landscape within a very short period owing to the rapid influx of patients requiring medical attention related to the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 infection displacing patients needing other types of medical attention. Entire hospital systems were restructured to accommodate the intensive needs of patients with COVID-19, and hospital capacity was quickly overwhelmed in terms of actual space and the necessary personnel. Although routine care and elective procedures could be safely postponed, the resource-intensive pandemic limited the ability of hospitals to easily manage critical medical conditions such as acute aortic emergencies. The limitations put both patients and healthcare workers at risk by the potential for nosocomial transmission of the virus. In this issue of JTCVS, Mehta et al1 have presented a consensus algorithm for triaging and treating patients presenting with acute aortic emergencies during the COVID-19 pandemic. The algorithm aims to minimize the risk of exposure and transmission when treating patients in this emergent setting. The lessons learned in this pandemic should prepare us for a potential second wave or any future pandemics. – Link to article here
