Ventilated Headboard

Adjustable Height Ventilated Headboard

Series: VH120 Category:

Description

The Chaparral VH120 Ventilated Headboard is designed to meet the surge capacity demands of widespread airborne infectious epidemics.  The VH120 is based on the specifications developed by NIOSH and the CDC for a surge isolation device to protect healthcare workers1.

USES

Room: Temporarily converts standard rooms to an airborne infection isolation rooms (AIIRs)

Emergency Shelter: Enables conversion of shelters for airborne infection isolation

Large Scale Deployment: Ability to be daisy chained for mass events 

HIGHLIGHTS

Worker protection—Healthcare workers able to operate outside the infectious “hot zone” in patient room

NIOSH Proven — NIOSH base design successfully captured/removed over 99% of airborne infectious-sized aerosol during laboratory testing with the droplet nuclei test protocol2

Air Change – Typically 10-30 ACH depending on HEPA negative air filtration unit and room size

Cost-effective — Can be deployed quickly in place of expensive HVAC system alterations

Patient access—Open front allows interaction between the patient and other room occupants or equipment

Modular — Can be daisy chained for large-scale deployments

HOW IT WORKS

  • Localized control captures, contains and eliminates contaminants before they can disperse
  • Low-velocity air currents capture and remove contaminants without irritating the patient
  • Retractable canopy, easily replaced between uses, allows access to patient’s head and neck

BENEFITS TO HOSPITAL ORGANIZATIONS, ENGINEERS AND FACILITY TEAMS

  • Highly durable construction designed for multiple uses
  • Easy to set-up and breakdown with Chaparral’s enhanced design
    • 86% less components to assemble than the NIOSH DIY version
    • Saves stretched staff time for deployment and storage
  • Minimal storage footprint
  • Easy-to-clean stainless steel and aluminum construction
  • Work with most shelter cots, gurneys, and hospital beds (CDC recommended 48” plenum width)

APPLICATIONS

  • Hospitals
  • Field Hospitals/Emergency medical shelter environments
  • Triage stations
  • Large scale events
  • Quarantine stations
  • Nursing homes
