In this video we demonstrate the assembly and operation of an AirBoss Chem/Bio ISO-POD.

Patient transportation isolation devices are not pieces of equipment we use on a regular basis. Familiarization with the correct assembly and operation techniques of such devices ensures patient and healthcare professional safety when called into use.

Other versions of this isolation device are manufactured by this company. A large proportion of this video is also applicable to those devices.
