Abstract

The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic is rapidly progressing worldwide and the impact on societies is constantly evolving. This consensus document highlights the clinical challenges and seeks to guide Australian and New Zealand cardiology units in their decisions as to how best reconfigure interventional cardiac services during this difficult time. There is no ‘‘one-size fits all” recommendation and each unit may be faced with unique challenges. It is possible if the worst-case scenario occurs that little or no service provision is possible.
