Abstract:   (553 Views)
The mortality rate of Coronavirus Decease 2019 (COVID-19) is very high, but specific situations can increase the rate including severe hypoxemia, multiple organ injury, and thromboembolic events in various organs. Another factor is the stress caused after surgery that require general anesthesia. This study aims to report a case of death in an adult woman with COVID-19 infection who had underwent septoplasty and admitted to hospital after worsening of her general condition and treated when diagnosed with COVID-19. One day after admission, she was intubated due to progressive respiratory failure and deceased following bradycardia and cardiac arrest. It seems that the elective surgery should be avoided in patients infected with COVID-19 and should be postponed until complete recovery. Moreover, the possibility of this infection should be considered in all candidates for surgery with subtle respiratory symptoms.
