The unprecedented for modern medicine pandemic caused by the SARS-COV-2 virus (`` coronavirus", Covid-19) creates in turn new data on the survival of cardiac arrest victims, but mainly on the safety of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) providers . The covid19 pandemic resulted in losses in thousands of lives, and many more people were hospitalized in simple beds or in intensive care units both globally and in Greece . More specifically, in victims of cardiac arrest, both in and out of hospital, the increased mortality and high contagiousness of the SARS-CoV-2 virus put the CPR rescuers in front of new questions of both medical and moral nature . What we all know in Resuscitation, is that we cannot harm the victim and therefore do the most/best we can, it is no longer the full reality . What we need to know and incorporate into decision-making in the resuscitation process is the distribution of limited human and material resources, the potentially very poor outcome of patients with covid-19 and cardiac arrest, and especially that a potential infection of health professionals can lead in the absence of health professionals in the near future . This review tries to incorporate the added skills and precautions for CPR providers in terms of both in hospital and out hospital CPR.
