In recent weeks, the promising use of cold plasma for treating COVID-19 patients has been discussed with virologists, microbiologists, anaesthesiologists, intensive care physicians, and pulmonologists.

• There are first indications that cold atmospheric plasma can also inactivate coronaviruses in solution, according to Von Brunn research group at the Max-von-Pettenkofer Institute in Munich, .

• With these promising results, the development of the so-called ‘plasma intensive care’ started at terraplasma medical GmbH, a CE-mark approved medical device that generates cold atmospheric plasma.

• The plasma intensive care is an adaptation of the plasma care® for anti-bacterial and anti-viral treatment of the upper respiratory tract

• It is thus intended to improve the oral hygiene of patients with mechanical ventilators in general, and specifically that of COVID-19 patients.

• The plasma intensive care allows gaseous cold plasma to flow into the nasal, oral and pharyngeal cavities and temporarily floods them.

• Application of cold plasma is expected to inactivate bacteria and viruses locally to prevent them from penetrating bronchi and lungs.

• This could reduce the risk of nosocomial pneumonia and increase the chances of survival for these patients.
