Description:This 1981 image depicts a virtual patient, who was actually a healthy participant in a practice activity, sitting up in a bed, and who was about to be enclosed in a Vicker’s patient-isolation unit, which would normally be used to transport critically-ill patients to nearby medical centers. In the background you can see a medical staff member taking part in the assemblage of the Vicker’s enclosure.
The image was captured during a trial run of a patient taken from CDC to a nearby medical center. A doctor was administering care to the patient with supportive help from the Isolation Unit medical staff. See PHIL 14505 through 14529, for imagery documenting this practice emergent situational scenario.
