Currently, we are in the midst of a global pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2 viral infection, termed Coronovirus disease or COVID-19. Despite the enormous working constraints imposed by this highly contagious virus and limited healthcare infrastructure, the neurosurgeons and neuroanaesthetists worldwide continue to provide their emergency services to neurocritically ill patients who need immediate intervention. Appropriate treatment modifications are mandatory to minimize nosocomial spread of SARS-CoV-2 while providing emergency care to the suspected or confirmed cases with COVID-19. In this review, we shall discuss the salient points about the various COVID-19 specific modifications involved in neuroanaesthesia practice, pertinent to the ongoing pandemic.
