How does the McMonty work?
The containment hood is primarily for containment of large droplets. The unit has a fan located on the back which pulls air over the patient, and away from the nurse. The air is then released through a powerful HEPA (High-efficiency particulate air) H13 filter, which is designed to clean and the scrub the air of smaller droplets of the virus.
What does a protection hood achieve?
The McMonty by Medihood allows for reduction in the risk of patient’s transmitting COVID-19 to healthcare workers. It will also allow for the care of the patient to be drastically better as healthcare workers are able to carry out tasks and tend to their patients more safely and easily.
