A covid box is an enclosure that goes over a patient during intubation. This limits the spread of infectious diseases. The design of this intubation box was inspired by Dr. Hsien Yung Lai in Taiwan. He designed the box for dealing with the challenge of safely intubating patients with COVID-19. He open-sourced the design for other doctors to use globally.
This particular implementation was developed by a team of doctors from the University of Toronto and Trillium Health Partners.
