Suzy MCP Respiratory Hood, adult sized.

Circular in shape, the ventilator hood is founded on a 3D printed, orange base which is lined with a silicone neck seal. The patient's head can be inserted through the seal into a transparent, plastic hood. An inflatable neck cushion on the hood's interior provides patient comfort. This is inflated with a black valve at the rear of the hood which has a clip to adjust the amount of air held within the cushion. At the front of the hood are two orange, sealed access ports suitable for probes or catheters. On the left of the hood is a large, orange free-breathing valve which allows for two-way breathing if the inlet air supply is interrupted. An outlet on the valve allows a standard viral filter to be attached. Next to the large valve is a smaller outlet. On the right of the hood is another small outlet, positioned high to maximise patient comfort and facilitate prone positioning. At the very top of the hood is a vale which connects to an inflatable dead space reducer to adjust the free-air volume. Attached to both sides of the hood is a white, padded merino arm strap. This is attached to the orange base of the hood with velcro.
