German DRF Luftrettung, one of the largest air rescue organizations in Europe, are transporting patients from coronavirus hotspots to hospitals with available capacity. Dr Gerhild Gruner, Head of Critical Care in DRF Luftrettung in an interview with Sky News stated:
The EpiShuttle protects the surroundings, including professionals, from a contagious patient and it is also used the other way around – to protect a vulnerable patient from the contaminated environment. This way, contagious patients situated in isolation wards can be safely transported to other parts of the hospital for treatment or tests, without the risk of infecting staff or other patients. When using the EpiShuttle, there is no need to disinfect hallways, elevators or other areas through which the patient has been transported. This applies both to highly infectious diseases and patients with other infections, such as measles, tuberculosis, or multi-resistant bacteria.
Due to positive pressure mode, the EpiShuttle protects vulnerable patients from the environment around them. Burn victims and patients recovering from cancer treatment, for example, are particularly susceptible to airborne pathogens, including MRSA, which are filtered by the EpiShuttle ventilation system.
