Novel coronavirus infection during the 2019-2020 epidemic: preparing intensive care units-the experience in Sichuan Province, China

With the rapid transmission, the epidemic has spread throughout the country, and 177 cases have been reported in Sichuan Province. As nCoV infection is a highly contagious disease with high mortality (3–15%) [1,2,3] and West China Hospital (WCH) is the largest hospital in the southwest of China and the referral medical center in Sichuan Province, it is our responsibility to prepare for admission of additional critically ill patients as a matter of emergency. We have held several expert meetings and have reviewed the related literature to develop a plan to respond to the epidemic [4, 5]. The purpose of the plan is to enable us to provide the maximum level of care to critically ill patients while ensuring the protection of medical staff.

How to balance acute myocardial infarction and COVID-19: the protocols from Sichuan Provincial People's Hospital

Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is a cardiovascular emergency and requires an emergency diagnosis and treatment process. Unfortunately, the highly contagious COVID-19 pneumonia is obviously affecting the diagnosis and treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) which includes ST-elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI) and non-ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). There are increasing confirmed cases around multiple countries every day. The transmission dynamics is not fully understood [1]. It is necessary to adjust the routine diagnosis and treatment protocol of AMI to face the serious public health event.
