Essential personal protective equipment, from surgical gowns to face masks, are in short supply. In response, do-it-yourself makers are pressing ahead in what some corners of the internet are calling a medical hackathon.
But healthcare workers in most of the hospitals in the country now want to have their own face shields for protection of the facial area from splatter of body fluids.
Postgraduate interns working at Remedios Trinidad Romualdez Hospital in Tacloban, Leyte are among those people who are making safe and low-cost face shields. Their product, made of PVC plastic, has been a hit among the staff members of the hospital. Here’s how you can do it, too.
You will need:
PVC plastic cover in A4 size punched with two holes on both top edges
Foam, nine inches long
Garter, 17 inches long
Double-sided adhesive tape
Place a strip of double-sided tape on both edges of the foam and on the center.
Remove adhesive covers of the tape.
Stick the foam on top of the PVC, at the part where the holes were placed.
With a garter, tie a knot on the two holes of the plastic cover.
