Most of the patients were male (n=136, 67.3%) and aged 65 years or greater (n=128, 63.4%). Forty-five (22.3%) patients (n=45) had a predicted anatomically difficult airway and all patients were anticipated to be physiologically difficult due to severe hypoxemia. All intubations were undertaken by two trained operators. For personal protective equipment (PPE), all intubating clinicians wore N95 respirators (closest to the face), surgical masks (covering the N95 respirator), eye protection goggles, a protective cover-all with hood and foot covers as inner layer protection (Fig. 1A). The outer layer of protection was comprised of a water-resistant full gown and either a face shield (10.9%, Fig 1B) and a full hood either without a powered air purifying respirator (PAPR) (64.4%, Fig. 1C) or with a PAPR (24.8%, Fig. 1D). Donning and doffing were checked by a nurse and by the two clinicians checking each other. The number of anesthesiologists involved in the intubations was 36 in Hospital A and 10 in Hospital B.
