The BDF Military Hospital is one of the first hospitals in Bahrain to install the latest isolation equipment, including portable isolation chambers designed to isolate and treat suspected active COVID-19 cases, with other hospitals to follow.
The 3-meter by 3-meter chambers are equipped with all the technology available at standard isolation rooms and undergo 48 air changes per hour, allowing for the safe transfer of suspected cases.
The BDF emergency department screens all patients by visual triage, identifying and quickly isolating suspected COVID-19 cases within the isolation chamber, which includes a safety measure put in place to ensure the safety of other patients and allows appropriate treatment to be provided by the medical staff.
The state-of-the-art portable isolation chambers are equipped with medical technology available in standard isolation rooms, including negative pressure, UV light HEPA Filter that kills bacteria and viruses, and a fully equipped ICU bed.
The latest equipment has been used to carry out laboratory tests, and special rooms equipped with the latest modern technologies to isolate suspected cases have been provided.
