Intubation Box

The Intubation Box is an inexpensive and reusable protective device originally designed by Dr Hsien Yung Lai in Taiwan, to protect healthcare providers when intubating Covid-19 patients.We, ER doctors and designers, have taken his gracious design and altered it for the American body habitus. The Intubation Box works by sitting over the head and shoulders of a Covid-19 patient as they are intubated by a healthcare provider. The acrylic box acts as a protective shield between the patient and medical provider, with the intent of reducing the healthcare provider's exposure to Coronavirus (COVID-19).After each intubation, the box can be cleaned with a bleach or alcohol solution.
