The TabEvac is a baby evacuation apron created for use in emergencies for the safe evacuation of both newborn and premature babies from special care baby units (SCBU).
The TabEvac is constructed using robust cotton drill material, comes with foam padded shoulders to bring comfort to the operator and has colour coded binding and side ties. This baby evacuation apron is made in a couple of variations – with a single pouch pocket on the apron’s front or a twin pocket option.
There are also a further three pockets on the front of the TabEvac as well as a pocket for storing a cylinder on the back of the apron. This allows for manual ventilation if necessary.
How to use the TabEvac:
- Place the baby evacuation apron over the head ensuring that the pouches are on the front.
- Ensure the TabEvac is firmly secured by tightly fastening the ties on both sides.
- If oxygen is required, make sure that the cylinder is placed in the pocket on the rear of the apron, directing the line via the loop on the right shoulder.
- Place one baby in the pouch if wearing the single pouch apron variant or one in each of the pockets, should the twin pouch apron variant be worn.
- Exit the building quickly and safely.
