Introduction: In an effort to avoid travel and interpersonal contact, the COVID-19 health crisis was an opportunity to offer preanesthesia teleconsultation (TCs) to patients scheduled for surgery. Materials and Methods: We studied the technical feasibility and patient experiences of these TCs using a 4-point Likert scale questionnaire. Results: Eighty-six patients out of 139 responded. Technical difficulties (no connection, picture, or sound) occurred in 24% of cases. The patient's experience was considered very positive both in terms of feelings and understanding instructions: 4 (4-4). No deprogramming was required. Conclusion: TCs were approved by patients despite technical problems. Further studies are required to ensure that this type of consultation is not inferior to face-to-face consultations. NCT04920604.

OBJECTIVES: The world is currently facing an unprecedented healthcare crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The objective of these guidelines is to produce a framework to facilitate the partial and gradual resumption of intervention activity in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. METHODS: The group has endeavoured to produce a minimum number of recommendations to highlight the strengths to be retained in the 7 predefined areas: (1) protection of staff and patients; (2) benefit/risk and patient information; (3) preoperative assessment and decision on intervention; (4) modalities of the preanaesthesia consultation; (5) specificity of anaesthesia and analgesia; (6) dedicated circuits and (7) containment exit type of interventions. RESULTS: The SFAR Guideline panel provides 51 statements on anaesthesia management in the context of COVID-19 pandemic. After one round of discussion and various amendments, a strong agreement was reached for 100% of the recommendations and algorithms. CONCLUSION: We present suggestions for how the risk of transmission by and to anaesthetists can be minimised and how personal protective equipment policies relate to COVID-19 pandemic context.
