Project Outline:

With the CoVid19 pandemic hitting South Africa hard and starting to take root in the Eastern Cape, our medical staff at the local Livingstone Hospital are under enormous strain and this project was aimed towards helping to protect healthcare workers at the frontline who rely heavily on PPE. As such, we received an urgent appeal from Anaesthetist Dr Lorenzo Boretti through Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr Bryan Theunissen regarding challenges faced by the in-theatre Anaesthesia teams in their CoVid theatre.

The challenge is to contain aerosolized droplets from patients with possible CoVid19 virus infection during procedures to ensure that the theatre staff assisting in the operation are minimally exposed to these droplets.
