This is a hood to be used during intubation to help contain any aerosolized virus.
There are 2 sets of arm holes on the sides, facing away from the intubator. One set of arm holes is used by the physician, and an assistant can use the second set.
There is a pipe at the front that goes under the mattress to help secure the hood. When deployed, the hood is slid down from the head of the bed about 6 inches and it holds tightly to the mattress.
