We have created a list of content from AccessMedicine and AccessEmergency Medicine, which addresses many of the medical topics related to COVID-19, including procedures. Included in this list are two unique resources which may be of particular help during COVID-19:

Reports of resource disparities at healthcare facilities around the world are impacting healthcare workers who are facing the need to be creative in how they deliver care. Improvised Medicine: Providing Care in Extreme Environments, 2e offers  innovative ideas and detailed instructions on how to provide effective patient treatment during acute supply shortages, including lack of ventilators and lack of personal protective equipment.

Understanding Telehealth explains how to integrate a remote patient monitoring system into your organization’s workflow, discusses the benefits of using telehealth in emergency departments to mitigate spread of acute disease, and supports the use of telehealth in other parts of the hospital, such as the intensive care unit where provider shortages may exist, and close patient monitoring is vital.
