The domes were presented specifically to the two hospitals’ nurse anesthesia teams, who are at high risk for exposure to COVID-19 when intubating patients.

“When I presented the idea to raise funds for the intubation domes during this critical time, there was no hesitation,” Alicia Ward, a student, said.

University officials called this an “unselfish act” from students.
