The Level4Suit™ - Unparalleled Patient Interaction

Level 4 Ebola and other biological protection for health care workers.Douglas Lyon, a physician and epidemiologist from Portland, Oregon on his way to Sierra Leone was quoted in Bloomberg (Sep 2014), concerning the poor interactive care they could provide to patients while wearing the current CDC approved suits and the effects of the extreme conditions healthcare workers experience, while wearing the current suits:

  • Ebola Personal Biohazard Protective Apparel for healthcare workers, doctors, and nurses working with patients infected with the Ebola virus and other Level 3 and 4 Biosafety level diseases.
  • Ebola Personal Biohazard Protective Clothing for healthcare workers, doctors, and nurses working with patients infected with the Ebola virus and other Level 3 and 4 Biosafety level diseases.
  • Ebola Personal Biohazard Protective Coveralls for healthcare workers, doctors, and nurses working with patients infected with the Ebola virus and other Level 3 and 4 Biosafety level diseases.
  • Ebola Personal Biohazard Protective Suit for healthcare workers, doctors, and nurses working with patients infected with the Ebola virus and other Level 3 and 4 Biosafety level diseases.
  • Ebola Personal Biohazard Protective Apparel for healthcare workers, doctors, and nurses working with patients infected with the Ebola virus and other Level 3 and 4 Biosafety level diseases.

‘In my space suit, I won’t be able to connect and provide reassurance with a smile, body language or a concerned look,” Lyon said. “I won’t be able to provide a reassuring human touch or even listen to their lungs or heart and what I believe to be my best physician strength -- cool clarity of mind. This will be much harder to find.”

The Level4Suit™ revolutionary design feature a clear vision body shield

Direct eye-contact with the patient and facial expressions of the health worker are possible.  The “space suit” appearance of the health worker’s is eliminated; the vital emotional needs of the patient are met.

The Level4Suit™design includes a port for a stethoscope

A specialized port allows the healthcare worker to safely use a stethoscope to listen to the patient’s heart, lungs and abdomen. Unlike the current CDC approved suits, the Level4Suit™ allows the healthcare worker to monitor valuable patient information to help diagnose the patient’s health status.

The Level4Suit™design provides an uncontaminated zone to access data storage devices

The interior allows the worker usage of electronic data storage units.  Data storage devices provide a means to connect the patient with their family, even will isolated.

 

Using the unit, instant patient data can be recorded.
