    Dear colleagues,

    The ISHLT COVID-19 Task Force met recently and revised the COVID-19 guidance document with a main emphasis on donor and recipient selection for cardiothoracic transplant and lung transplant listing criteria for COVID-19 related acute respiratory distress syndrome.  The document can be accessed via the following links:

    COVID-19 Information page of the ISHLT website.

    We welcome your feedback and comments.

    Regards,
    Saima
