Portable aerosol shield. The shield is made of transparent vinyl chloride and can be set on the stretcher during patient transportation. It has four arm ports (radius 150 mm, indicated by yellow arrows), two in the front (a) and one on each side (b), one suction port (green arrow) and six injection/oxygen ports (red arrowheads).
