Abstract

Within the context of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, minimizing health care worker exposure to the novel coronavirus has become a paramount part of the provision of health care in all settings across the world. Limited supply of personal protective equipment, personnel shortages as a result of exposure, and ensuring the safety and health of workers have all dictated the need to minimize the number of health care workers with direct patient contact. In resuscitation events, there is high likelihood of multiple aerosol-generating procedures and increased risk of viral transmission; therefore, limiting personnel is of particular importance. The development of creative solutions to allow vital team contributions to occur outside of the direct patient care space whenever possible is critical.
