This Health Technology Update newsletter describes patient helmets, also known as “helmet masks,” and their potential use in COVID-19 infection control. These helmets are designed to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission from infected patients to health care providers and other patients. The newsletter provides a background to the technology, target populations, cost and availability, current clinical evidence, and potential implications for future research. This technology was identified through the CADTH Horizon Scanning Service as a topic of potential interest to health care decision-makers in Canada.
