(FR) PRÉCHAMBRE À PRESSION NÉGATIVE À MONTAGE FACIAL
Abstract
(EN) Embodiments described herein provide systems and methods for protecting doctors and others from pathogenic microorganisms aerosolized during surgical and other procedures on patients. The systems and methods generally operate by forming a partially-enclosed chamber around the patient's face during the procedure. A facial adapter and facial shield isolate a portion of the patient's face from the surrounding environment. The partially-enclosed chamber is connected to a vacuum source that brings the pathogenic particles through a filter, which further decreases the number of pathogenic particles expelled into the environment.
(FR) Des modes de réalisation de la présente invention concernent des systèmes et des procédés pour protéger des médecins et d’autres personnes contre des microorganismes pathogènes aérosolisés pendant des interventions chirurgicales et autres sur des patients. Les systèmes et les procédés fonctionnent généralement en formant une chambre partiellement fermée autour du visage du patient pendant la procédure. Un adaptateur facial et un écran facial isolent une partie du visage du patient de l’environnement ambiant. La chambre partiellement fermée est reliée à une source de vide qui amène les particules pathogènes à traverser un filtre, ce qui réduit davantage le nombre de particules pathogènes expulsées dans l’environnement.
