This is the next priority PPE project for BAI to manage. Joe Brothman has asked us to scope the alternatives we have to provide the UCI Medical Center staff with MaxAir-like PAPRs. (MaxAir is a brand.) Professor Michelle Khine is doing some background research on this. Other PAPR units can be sourced, but staff members are trained on the MaxAir and that’s likely a key parameter. Khine is looking at retrofit adaptation options as well as building from scratch.
