There was a story on my local news about a High school shop teacher who worked with a local glass company to build intubation shields. Two of these were given to the local hospital in Honesdale Pa. It is simply half a box made of plexiglass that fits around the head of the patients bed. There are two holes where the Dr puts their arms through. They can look through the plexiglass to see as they intubate the patient. This protects them from secretions. This seems like a great idea. The story is on www.wnep.com

A doctor in New York made one with a storage tub and some plexi. I've also heard of intensivists putting a clear shower curtain over a mayo stand without the tray.
