Summary It has been hypothesized that aerosol-generating procedures expose health care workers (HCWs) to respiratory pathogens, thereby increasing the risk of contracting the associated infectious diseases. However, the risk of transmission of acute respiratory infections from each aerosol-generating procedure has not been fully determined. This study examines the clinical evidence for the risk of transmission of acute respiratory infections to health care workers caring for patients undergoing aerosol-generating clinical procedures, compared with the risk of transmission to health care workers caring for patients not undergoing aerosol-generating procedures.
