ICU research on aerosol boxes reveals problems

While a barrier box to prevent the spread of aerosolised respiratory droplets from critically ill patients during intubation might seem like a good idea at first glance, a critical analysis by intensive care unit (ICU) practitioners reveals that's not necessarily so.

ICU specialists from Monash University and Cabrini Health teamed up to assess two different types of aerosol boxes that have been rapidly developed and sold. They found that aerosol boxes may increase intubation times and therefore expose patients to the risk of hypoxia (lack of oxygen).
