The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic that started in China in 2019 has led to millions of infection cases worldwide. As the number of people with COVID-19 has increased, the number of patients with health problems that require surgery during the pandemic also increased, and at the same time, anesthesia is needed for these patients. In patients infected with acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, some features related to the clinical course of the disease should be known and considerations for the protection of healthcare workers and other patients due to increased contagiousness must be adopted. This review of the literature presents approaches in cases of patients diagnosed with COVID-19 and issues to be considered during anesthesia management.
