Air Force aero-medical units around the world will soon be using the Gentex® Patient Isolation Unit (PIU), a temporary, single-use, portable structure designed to contain and transport a patient and prevent particulate cross-contamination between the patient, the external environment and the caregivers. Made of a breathable, HEPA particulate filtration media, the PIU is used to temporarily isolate a contaminated patient outside or within patient care facilities, or to transport patients within vehicles, such as aircraft, via a litter or gurney.
