Advanced Cardiac Life Support Recommendations During the COVID-19 Pandemic | Alfred Health Guideline

This guideline describes the “Advanced Cardiac Life Support Recommendations for Patients During the COVID-19 Pandemic with Suspected or Confirmed COVID-19” at Alfred Health.

The guideline was updated on 18/6/20 as the COVID-19 pandemic in Victoria entered it’s next phase with established low prevalence of community transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus:

“Modified document to include only patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 rather than all patients in line with hospital CODE BLUE/MET call policy. Standard ACLS pathway should be followed for non-COVID-19 patients – LP, CN, JO”

The guideline will continue to be updated according to local requirements and the evolving evidence base.
