A simple and effective barrier, COVAIRE redefines the standards of PPE in the current healthcare environment.The COVAIRE barrier drape is specifically designed to help protect providers from pathogen exposure while performing aerosol-generating procedures like intubation and extubation.
An Innovative clear barrier drape designed to further protect providers from pathogen exposure while performing aerosol generating procedures.
COVAIRE is a simple and effective clear barrier drape to help protect providers from pathogen exposure during and after aerosol-generating procedures.
COVAIRE is designed to be used as personal protective equipment for aerosol-generating procedures, including: intubation, extubation, bronchoscopy, cystoscopy, TEE, CPR, and EGD, which pose an added risk to care providers.
COVAIRE is tucked under the patient’s head and covers the patient’s body. Healthcare providers can place their arms through openings in the drape to access the patient.:nbsp; When each procedure is finished, the provider carefully removes the drape and disposes of it.
COVAIRE is 54”x52”. It will work on almost all patients, including bariatric patients. Folded into its package, the COVAIRE has a very low profile and is easily stored on crash carts and as part of your critical care supplies.
COVAIRE is made from clear, medical-grade 2mm polyethylene film that is comfortable and lightweight.
COVAIRE should not negatively affect the workflow or turn-around time in the operating room. This is a disposable PPE product applied just prior to intubation and removed and discarded once the patient is connected to the ventilator. Total time for application and removal of the COVAIRE should be under a minute (intubation/extubation time varies by provider).
There is not a need for COVAIRE to be sterile to function as PPE for providers. Even if COVAIRE is used in an O.R. setting, it is removed directly after the patient is intubated, before sterile field preparation. After the surgery is completed, an additional COVAIRE should be used to extubate.
Ordering information for COVAIRE is available via 1-800-245-4636. Proper selection of protective apparel is essential to successfully limit exposure and reduce potential cross-contamination as rapidly emerging health threats continue to challenge facilities nationwide. From now on, COVAIRE should be used in all aerosol-generating procedures.
