#helmetbasedventilation for Covid-19
Hooded/Helmet Positive Airway Pressure (HPAP) ventilation techniques have been advanced in response to the Covid-19 pandemic with the introduction of the Subsalve Oxygen Treatment Hood. This device and technique offer several benefits:
- .: cost-effective non-invasive ventilation to ward off more severe respiratory distress
- .: delivers both elevated FiO2 and PEEP via a variety of readily available flow sources
- .: management of large patient volumes outside of the ICU
- .: mitigates aerosolized virus exposure to healthcare workers
The project has been supported by multiple individual donors, partners, both for-profit and not-for-profit companies and institutions, and has resulted in the provision of humanitarian aid to numerous countries including Bolivia, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Mexico, Haiti, Nigeria, Indonesia, India, Iraq, and multiple others.
Covid-19 is not going away and will continue to impact many parts of the world – Help us Help. Donations will allow important research (& development) on this technology to continue.
