The phoniatric in the COVID-19 pandemic: a time full of challenges
SARS-CoV-2 is a coronavirus type B, named because of its crown-like appearance under the electron microscope. On January 30, 2020, WHO officially declared the COVID-19 epidemic a public health emergency of international concern. The clinical management of respiratory failure in ICUs is of significant meaning to the phoniatric physician, who will be essential in the rehabilitation of patients. This document aims to review the risks to which we are exposed, and the sequelae we will face in the coming months, which, although we are trained to treat, will increase the risk of contagion and the severity of these conditions due to the change in ICU algorithms.
