Currently, there is a rapid worldwide spread of coronavirus infection 2019 (COVID-19). Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory staff are involved in emergency management of acute coronary syndrome including ST-elevation myocardial infarction and other emergencies. There is a paucity of Catheterization Laboratory protocols during a suspected or confirmed COVID patient intervention. Hence, to minimize the risk of spreading the virus to cardiac team members from suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19, we present our institutional protocol, especially during ST-elevation myocardial infarction or emergency intervention.
