Intubation and transport aids

UMaine’s Advanced Manufacturing Center team has worked with the Maine Manufacturing Extension Partnership to build, test and start production of two variations of an “aerosol box” meant to protect frontline medical staff as they intubate or transport patients who may be sick with COVID-19. These boxes have been tested in area hospitals and are being manufactured by companies in Maine.
