The COVID-19 outbreak is public health emergency, spreads easily from human to human, and may cause acute severe respiratory syndrome. The anesthesia teams who perform this procedure are at risk aerosolization and need special consideration and safety measures. Cardiac anesthesiologist follows two aims, recognition of COVID-19 patients that need surgery and decreasing the risk of perioperative viral transmission to coworkers. An isolated operating room (negative pressure operating room for COVID-19) should be available. It is important to regulate workflow and practices, anesthesia management, healthcare, and staff. Cardiac anesthesiologist and health-care workers must be use guidelines to treat patients with COVID-19.
