Simulation reveals breaches in coverage and the importance of careful disrobing

A simulation has revealed shortcomings in personal protective equipment (PPE) in both the equipment and in the manner that PPEs are used.


Canadian researchers tested PPEs in an airway-management simulation scenario with the help of a mannequin that could "cough" up a mixture containing Glo Germ powder.

The Glo Germ powder is a product designed to mimic the spread of micro-organisms.

The team ran a series of simulations involving different types of protective attire, finding the equipment they were
