      Keywords: Intensive care; COVID-19; Infectious diseases; Respiratory tract infections EN Intensive care COVID-19 Infectious diseases Respiratory tract infections 46 46 1 01/20/21 20210101 NES 210101 B I In reply: i b We thank Triplett and Collett for their interest in our Consensus Statement and for reporting their experience with tracheal intubation in a group of patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).1 They identified hypoxaemia during airway management as a frequent occurrence, and suggest this is exacerbated by the practice of minimising mask ventilation via a bag valve mask following the induction of anaesthesia and avoiding apnoeic oxygenation techniques during tracheal intubation. In the second version of our statement (updated online as a preprint on 2 April 2020), we recommended careful bag valve mask ventilation during the onset of muscle relaxant for patients with severe disease.
