The health-care sector has been drastically overwhelmed in the wake of prevailing COVID-19 pandemic, hampering elective and emergency medical services alike. The geriatric population is especially affected in this regard as they are the ones who need access to health care services the most, and unfortunately, they are the ones with the highest risk of cross infection and mortality with SARS-COV-2. Lockdown and public restrictions have made the accessibility even harder. Telemedicine has emerged as a useful tool that avoids the risk of cross infection during the face-to-face consultation. Numerous guidelines have been made regarding the implementation of teleconsultations during this pandemic. Through this report, we describe the “beyond guidelines” emergency management of paraphimosis in an aged, bedridden male with comorbidities, through teleconsultation amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
