4 key questions to ICU clinicians at the frontlines of COVID-19

Updated: Jul 22, 2020

Do you have first-hand knowledge of using a helmet for noninvasive lung ventilation?

Please help by answering these 4 questions through:

  • the survey link below or

  • by recording a brief audio/video on your smartphone and email to us at Our team will transcribe.

Thank you for your precious time and saving lines at the frontline of the COVI-19 pandemic.

Share your key 4 learnings at the ICU frontline:
  1. Do you use a helmet connected to airflow only (150-200 L/min), no ventilator or other breathing machines? If yes, would you recommend it?

  2. What are the positive effects of noninvasive ventilation via helmet for COVID-19 patients in your hospital?

  3. Does helmet use help you to save/open ICU beds for sickest COVID-19 patients?

  4. Can you say that a helmet use helps to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus due to filters in the system? 

This survey is being conducted by Aurika Savickaite, RN, MSN, who managed patients with noninvasive mechanical ventilation via helmet and worked closely with the research team at the University of Chicago Hospital.

The aim is to collect and consolidate in a single place the newest field-based information from the clinicians, who are or were managing respiratory distress in COVID-19 patients through the use of a helmet for noninvasive lung ventilation.
