    Just saw this in the Guardian and hope some of you more knowledgeable guys might have some sources to help:

    The Royal Mint is to start manufacturing medical visors for the NHS after developing a successful prototype to help protect frontline care workers in just 48 hours.The first batch of visors are already in use at The Royal Glamorgan Hospital in South Wales.

    Usually known for making coins, bullion and gifts, the Royal Mint has a state of the art manufacturing facility in Llantrisant, South Wales. Engineers were keen to support NHS workers, and began searching for medical equipment which could be easily produced on site.

    The team found a rudimentary design for a medical visor online, and began developing high specification prototypes – turning the concept into an approved design in just 48 hours.

    The visors will initially be made available to Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board Wales, but The Royal Mint says it can produce thousands per day subject to securing enough raw components. It is now appealing for manufacturers across the UK to help source 1.0mm PET clear plastic which is currently in low supply (visors@royalmint.com).

    Usually it is times of war that sees a boost in technology and inventions. Perhaps this is a sort of warfare.

    By “triage” Caz means “deciding whether the patient gets a chance at life or is left to die”.

    There is absolutely no way I would do that without the organisation putting in writing that I was indemnified for making that call.

    No neither would I. But those calls are never black and white there are always shades of grey. And the most near to death sometimes survive without what we thought would help and vise versa. There are indeed very few conditions in Intensive Care that have been subject to decent randomised controlled trials, the details and difficulty of providing equally ill groups of patients are immense. To say nothing of the ethics of subjecting people to interventions or not without consent which in practice can not be obtained. Practicing in these conditions requires enormous self belief and the support of the brother/sisterhood of those in the same place.
