Pandemic Surgery

An Integrated Ethics and Technical Reference
The book “Pandemic Surgery: An Integrated Ethics and Technical Reference” was conceived as a complementary volume to the earlier published handbook containing
procedural guidelines for PGH staff. This book on pandemic surgery aims to provide the conceptual basis for the corresponding structural and procedural adjustments in surgical care during a pandemic. The material was developed and written by faculty and residents of the department, and was extensively reviewed by practicing surgeons, academics, and advocates. It is meant to be of value for surgical administrators, clinicians, and trainees at the PGH as well as most other local institutions. While the coverage is extensive, the provided material, for purposes of conciseness and relevance, is admittedly not exhaustive.
The editors are aware that a lot remains unknown regarding SARS-CoV-2 as well as the actual effectiveness of COVID-19 measures.
