Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This report aims to illustrate how to perform a venous access to a COVID-19 patient at the bedside. The decision on the type of venous access, the selection of the material necessary to perform the procedure, and the preparation of the operators are described. The described approach can reduce costs, speed up execution times, and make the operator’s work safer. Furthermore, these precautions may help control the spread of COVID-19 within the healthcare facility.
