ABSTRACT

Purpose of Review: The purpose of this review is to discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on pulmonary procedures, including new guidelines, restrictions, techniques, and overall effect on patient care. Recent Findings: SARS-CoV-2 predominately impacts the pulmonary system and can result in a severe lower respiratory tract infection. Early guidelines based largely on data from the SARS epidemic recommended significant restrictions on procedure volume out of concern for healthcare worker safety. Newer data suggests relative safety in performing airway and pleural procedures as long as appropriate precautions are followed and new techniques are utilized. The introduction of effective vaccines and more reliable testing has led to a re-expansion of elective procedures. Summary: Many guidelines and expert statements exist for the management and practice of pulmonary procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic. A flexible and individualized approach may be necessary as our understanding of COVID-19 continues to evolve.
