|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|SARS-CoV 2 COVID||Behavioral: Telephonic medical visit Procedure: Gastrointestinal endoscopy Procedure: Abdominal ultrasound|
Patients will undergo a telephonic interview 48-96h before the procedure where will ask about the presence of symptoms suggestive of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Optionally, they will also be carried out a scan (PCR) to detect infection 48-96h before procedure, withdrawing from the study patients with positive PCR or infection suspected by clinical data according to the questionnaire, after evaluating the responses to the questionnaire by one of the members of the research team.
Endoscopic examinations will be carried out according to the recommendations of the Spanish Society for Digestive Endoscopy (SEED). The patient will perform a hand wash with solution hydroalcoholic before entering the endoscopy room, and you will be placed a surgical mask and gloves. Staff close to the patient will carry FFP2 mask, exceptionally surgical mask, gown (waterproof in high-risk examinations as established in the SEED guidelines), hat, nitrile gloves and face shield or safety glasses (reusable) and shim covers. The examinations will be carried out using sedation guided by endoscopist according to current clinical guidelines.
Ultrasonographic examinations (US) will be carried out according to clinical guideline. The examinator will wear a filtering face pieces 2 (FFP2) mask, exceptionally surgical mask, gown, cap, nitrile gloves and face shield or goggles safety (reusable) and shoe covers. The gel bottle, the transducer and the gurney will be washed before each US with low level disinfectant.
Patients who meet the inclusion criteria and do not have any exclusion criteria will be invited to participate in the study. The patients who agree to participate will complete the informed consent according to the law 41/2002 of patient autonomy without for that reason alter the relationship with your doctor or cause any harm to your treatment. The monitoring period will have a maximum duration of 17 days. It will consist of a telephone control through a pre-established checklist. In case of any positive answer to the questionnaire, it will be completed the study through the consultation of the investigators by means of a polymerase chain reaction (PCR).

Endoscopic examinations: They will be carried out according to the recommendations of the Spanish society for digestive endoscopy (SEED). In summary, the patient will perform a hand wash with hydroalcoholic solution before entering the endoscopy room, and will put on a surgical mask and gloves. Personnel close to the patient will wear an FFP2 mask, exceptionally a surgical mask, a gown (waterproof in high-risk examinations as established in the SEED guidelines), a cap, nitrile gloves and face shield or safety glasses (reusable) and shoe covers. The examinations will be performed by endoscopist-guided sedation in accordance with current clinical guidelines.
Procedure: Gastrointestinal endoscopy
Upper or lower GI endoscopy according to clinical practice and current guidelines
Abdominal ultrasound: They will be carried out according to international clinical guidelines (12). The explorer will wear an FFP2 mask, exceptionally a surgical mask, a gown, a hat, nitrile gloves, and a face shield or safety glasses (reusable) and shoe covers. The gel bottle, transducer, and stretcher will be washed prior to each scan with low-level disinfectant
Procedure: Abdominal ultrasound
Diagnostic abdominal ultrasound according to the current guidelines
The patient will be telephonically contacted for a medical visit.
Behavioral: Telephonic medical visit
The patient will receive a telephonic call passing a medical visit
