#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 has several benefits:
- -cost-effective non-invasive ventilation to ward off more severe respiratory distress
- -delivers both elevated FiO2 and PEEP
- -reduces intubations
- -management of large patient volumes outside of the ICU
- -mitigates virus aerosol
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 has just begun in many parts of the world – Help us Help.
