Resumen

PEREZ DEL CAZ, Mª Dolores et al. Organization of burn units during the COVID-19 pandemic: experience of 5 burn units. Cir. plást. iberolatinoam. [online]. 2020, vol.46, suppl.1, pp.63-74.  Epub 22-Jun-2020. ISSN 1989-2055.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/s0376-78922020000200012.

On March 11th, a pandemic situation caused by the virus SARS-Cov-2 was declared, challenging health-care systems all over the world. Therefore, a reorganization of national health-care systems had to be performed in order to deal with this disease. In this context, new recommendations have appeared for the management of surgical patients, postponing elective surgeries. However, urgency in the treatment of burn patients is justified, even in those cases affected by the virus.

The coincidence of the precocity and intensity with which the pandemic affected Spain, with the existence of scarce evidence regarding burn unit organization, caused that reorganization of each center had to be performed from scratch, adapting their particular circumstances.

In this article, we expose the organizational schemes and the experience of 5 burn units, 4 in Spain and 1 more in Chile, in their adaptation to the COVID-19 pandemic.
