Anesthesia Requirements for Surgery following COVID - 19 infections.
For those of you that are having surgery with us please note that we wish to provide you the safest care possible. The American Society for Anesthesia (ASA) and Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF) have the following recommendations regarding anesthesia following Covid-19 infections.
The timing of elective surgery after recovery from COVID-19 uses both symptom- and severity-based categories.
The ASA-APSF suggested wait times from the date of COVID-19 diagnosis to surgery as:
Four weeks for an asymptomatic patient or recovery from only mild, non-respiratory symptoms.
Six weeks for a symptomatic patient (e.g., cough, dyspnea) who did not require hospitalization.
Eight to 10 weeks for a symptomatic patient who is diabetic, immunocompromised, or hospitalized.
Twelve weeks for a patient who was admitted to an intensive care unit due to COVID-19 infection.
