Title
(EN) COLLAPSIBLE ISOLATION APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL D'ISOLEMENT PLIANT
Abstract
(EN)
A collapsible, transportable personnel isolation apparatus or device (10) is used to isolate a patient in a controlled environment and to protect the patient against biologcial or chemical hazards during transport of the patient. The collapsible apparatus (10) has a flexible containment wall (14) which is expandable from a collapsed, stored state to an expanded state to receive the patient. At least a portion of the containment wall (14) is clear to allow observation of the patient within an interior region of the device (10). An air filtration system (200) is provided for filtering air between the airtight interior region and the ambient atmosphere. Preferably, the apparatus (10) has various ports therein, such as glove ports, pass through ports, access ports for cardiac leads, infusion line ports, and ventilation ports.
(FR)
L'invention se rapporte à un appareil ou à un dispositif (10) pliant et transportable d'isolement de personnes qui permet d'isoler un patient dans un environnement contrôlé et de le protéger contre les dangers biologiques ou chimiques pendant son transport. L'appareil pliant (10) comporte une paroi de confinement souple (14) qui peut être déployée d'un état plié de rangement à un état déployé permettant de recevoir le patient. Une partie au moins de la paroi de confinement (14) est transparente de façon à permettre l'observation du patient au sein d'une région intérieure du dispositif (10). Un système de filtration de l'air (200) est conçu pour filtrer l'air entre la région intérieure hermétiquement close et l'atmosphère ambiante. De préférence, l'appareil (10) comporte divers points d'accès tels que des points d'accès associés à des gants, des points d'accès permettant de traverser le dispositif, des points d'accès pour le passage de cordons de mesure cardiaque, des points d'accès pour des tubulures de perfusion et des orifices de ventilation.
