LUNA-CASTANEDA, Adriana del Carmen et al. Biosecurity and airway management in the pediatric patient with SARS-CoV-2 infection. Neumol. cir. torax [online]. 2020, vol.79, n.4, pp.265-277.  Epub 14-Mar-2022. ISSN 0028-3746.

The first confirmed case of COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) in our country occurred on February 27, 2020, according to the Mexican Ministry of Health. The staff engaged in pediatric care has developed training strategies to serve their patients and to be part of the pandemic response staff. Learning biosecurity mechanisms is significant to prevent further spread of the virus and strengthen health care teams with the purpose of preventing contagion. That is why we consider that the pediatricians in Mexico should be trained to determine the type of personal protective equipment and protection strategies before, during and after ventilating patients, also when performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation maneuvers, procedures that are aerosol generators. Considering that a long epidemic is expected in our country, we present this article that serves as part of the knowledge required to document good practices for treating COVID-19.
