Trinetics Group is manufacturing intubation boxes for use by medical professionals in the treatment of COVID-19 patients.
Trinetics Group Intubation Boxes
The Trinetics Group Intubation Box is an inexpensive piece of hospital protective equipment being used on the frontlines in the fight against COVID19. An Intubation Box, also commonly referred to as an Aerosol Box, is a transparent acrylic cube which covers a patient’s head and acts as a barrier between the physician and patient during endotracheal intubation.
Intubation is a necessary procedure for severely infected COVID-19 undergoing respiratory failure. Healthcare workers are at the greatest risk of contracting the disease during intubation, so the use of an Intubation Box provides a protective barrier against aerosol and droplets.
Intubation Box Design
Trinetics Group used the basic design of Dr. Hsien Yung Lai, an anesthesiologist from Mennonite Christian Hospital in Hua Lian, Taiwan, and added additional protective and mobility features to aid healthcare providers.
Trinetics Group’s Intubation Box effectively shields a doctor’s face from a patient’s airway, while still allowing healthcare worker to move his/her arms freely to perform all necessary tasks during endotracheal intubation. The device has two holes through which a physician can insert their hands to perform intubation procedures, with a clear viewing area, that acts as a shield from the patients’ respiratory droplets.
The intubation box can be easily and quickly reused after each intubation. Made of the highest quality acrylic, they can be cleaned using a Cavicide disinfectant, 70% alcohol, or bleach.
Why is the Intubation Box so important?
Hospitals across the United States are using Intubation Boxes as critical Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to help ensure the safety of their physicians and healthcare staff. According to governmental guidance, healthcare providers need to be wearing PAPRs (powered air-purifying respirators), however this gear is currently in short supply. Overusing face shields and N95 masks puts healthcare workers at a much higher risk of contracting COVID-19. Additional protective equipment like the Intubation Box is an effective solution for additional protection for front-line medical workers.
