Protective Barrier Enclosure

Protective Barrier Enclosure

Keeping those on the frontlines safe is a constant motivation to share and develop protective supplies. Like so many who have volunteered their time during this crisis, we also want to pool our collective resources and do our part to offer support.Even when healthcare workers are wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), intubation and other aerosol generating procedures can pose some of the greatest contamination risks during the COVID-19 public health emergency. Properly used, the Improvised Mayo Stand Drape may offer some physical barrier/protection while still allowing the visualization and access needed for the procedure.

Setting up a drape can be done easily with a Mayo stand and some clips. Instructions can be found here. For information about ordering the drapes, click here.

These improvised drapes are being distributed for use ONLY during the COVID-19 public health emergency. The improvised drapes should ONLY be used in conjunction with required PPE (such as face masks, face shields, gowns, etcetera) that are worn by the healthcare provider.
