A comparison of anesthetic protective barriers for the management of COVID-19 pediatric patients.

Barrier techniques, such as plastic sheets or intubation boxes, are purported to offer additional protection for healthcare workers. A well-designed intubation box is an effective barrier against droplets and is non-inferior to no barrier in relation to intubation time. However, a box interferes with laminar flow in theatres with formal ventilation systems and may result in accumulation of aerosols if it is completly enclosed.
