Resuscitation is arguably one of the most physically and mentally challenging tasks that a healthcare professional can undertake. Patients admitted due to COVID-19 have an increased propensity for rapidly progressive respiratory failure, necessitating critical care admission [1], and it is essential that early consideration should be made for advanced care planning. It is important to establish with the patient and the people that are important to them what treatments are likely to be of benefit. This includes
discussing the implications of critical care admission and resuscitative treatment. Therefore, this article focusses on the impact of the additional stressors and challenges that must be considered when delivering resuscitative treatment during the COVID-19 pandemic. It reviews the evidence and guidance that has been developed to help health care professionals carry out resuscitation procedures
