Sheri Crider in conjunction with New Mexico Craft Responders worked with volunteers: Andrea Deleon, Earl McBride, Amanda Dannáe Romero and Kristen Angerbauer with UNM Architecture to produce intubation boxes for healthcare providers. Intubation Boxes are reusable acrylic protective devices, originally designed by Dr. Hsien Yung Lai in Taiwan, that sit over the head and shoulders of COVID-19 patients. The box acts as a protective shield between the patient and medical provider, with the intent of reducing the healthcare provider’s exposure to COVID-19. After each intubation, the box can be easily cleaned with a bleach or alcohol solution.
“Sheri took her first box to Lovelace Health System here in Albuquerque where doctors used it and immediately ordered 12 more. Since the first batch, she and a crew of volunteers…have made more that have gone everywhere from Roswell to Zuni.”
