A simple solution that will change the standard of care for hospital infectious disease containment. Get to know the device from zero-to-five.
There is one oxygen port adapter on the right side of the device that connects to standard size 3/16" - 1/4" ID oxygen tubing readily available in every facility. A patient may also receive supplemental oxygen through a nasal cannula.
There are two suction port adapters on the left side that connect to a standard 1/4" - 3/8" ID hospital suction tubing or a portable suction pump capable of achieving 50-70 liters of airflow/min.
If your facility is only set up for 1 suction port, simply increase the clearance time to 10 minutes.
“There is an urgent need for small capacity self-contained negative pressure environments that utilize existing hospital suction lines and HEPA filtration. The SCONE is a highly efficient, low cost solution that can be quickly deployed for use and quickly disposed of after treatment."
Fully-sealed when not in use, the 4 arm access holes are easy to open and seal shut and allow for up to 3 HCWs to be assisting a patient at one time.
Standard negative pressure rooms require an air exchange rate per hour (ACH) of 12. Our data shows that the SCONE achieves 50+ ACH under normal operating conditions, providing a more effective and efficient alternative to the high expense of retrofitting existing rooms in every hospital facility.
