Protecting healthcare workers from COVID-19 while providing urgent life-saving care to patients.
Aerosol Protection in the Clinical Setting
Enhanced levels of personal PPE (when available) has helped in protecting the medical staff from the risk of contracting COVID-19 infection via respiratory secretions during airway management procedures. However, it can take up to seven minutes to correctly and safety apply full PPE from time of arrival. Recent changes to resuscitation guidelines to offer further protection may in fact delay medical staff from the early and urgent interventions on critically ill patients they are trained to provide.
The AerosolShield is a disposable, mini pop-up tent covering the patient patient’s head, neck and shoulder-level chest area with further coverage of the torso through an integrated drape. The deployed shield is optically clear and has self-closing access points, allowing medical staff to have easy line-of-sight hand access in and around the patient’s airway.
AerosolShield is significantly lighter and cheaper than hard box solutions, and is collapsible for easy transport, storage and disposal in standard yellow clinical waste bins.
