A device to protect healthcare workers

By Mindo - 09th Apr 2020

A team of anaesthesiologists and two Irish plastics companies have produced a device to protect healthcare workers when they perform procedures that are likely to generate aerosols capable of transmitting the virus, such as putting a patient on a ventilator. Dr Michael Egan, Anaesthesiologist, of Critical Care Partners (CCP) – a group of consultant physicians specialising in Anaesthesia, Intensive Care and Perioperative medicine across 7 private hospitals in Ireland – joined forces with Dr Jennifer McElwain of University Hospital Galway and Dr Nick Barrett of University Hospital Limerick, plus Martin Tierney of Seating Matters, a Specialist Healthcare seating company in Limavady and Mark Irvine of Plastics Promotions – a plastic fabrication company – in Craigavon.
