LUNA-CASTANEDA, Adriana del Carmen et al. Barrier devices during endotracheal intubation: a utility in the intubation process during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic?. Neumol. cir. torax [online]. 2021, vol.80, n.1, pp.56-61.  Epub 06-Dic-2021. ISSN 0028-3746.

The urgent need of caring for COVID-19 patients has prompted doctors around the world to come up with innovative strategies to safeguard their health. The response of health care institutions to this pandemic is unprecedented, as is the shortage of personal protective equipment. Without it, the chances of health workers to become ill and die increase. In patients infected with SARS CoV-2, the Aerosol-Generating Procedures are considered to be those with the highest exposure to the virus in the care rooms. In this article we expose the available information regarding additional protection provided by some barrier devices during the intubation-extubation process, in order to create the need for Mexican physicians to investigate the consequences of their use further on.
