Guidance for Cardiothoracic Transplant Centers regarding SARS CoV-2 infection and COVID-19: March 15, 2020We convened an international group of ISHLT members representing Infectious Diseases, Pulmonology, Cardiology, Cardiothoracic Surgery and Pharmacy to discuss frequently asked questions in the setting of the current pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2 (virus) causing a disease termed COVID-19. At this time, there is very scant published information regarding COVID-19 in cardiothoracic transplant recipients. Current guidance is based on clinical experience and will be revised as more data becomes available.The document can be found on the home page of the ISHLT-CoVId19 community but is also attached to this email for easy access.Best,
Hallo, I strongly recommend chest CT scan over X-ray. Chest X-ray cannot be trusted for screening for Covid-19 disease-related pneumonia.Best wishes, and please try to limit as much as you can virus transmission.
