My husband is in hospital with Covid and pneumonia. He is 82 and has other health problems. I managed to speak to him today and he is very ill but says he is now on an ordinary oxygen mask before he was put into a type of helmet and he had a job even trying to sleep. What would that be, any ideas?

There are helmet ventilators, not sure if they are used here though. https://www.nih.gov/news-events/nih-research-matters/helmet-based-ventilation-eases-respiratory-distress I wish your Husband well.

The photo of that helmet looks just as he described it, he said similar to astronauts helmet. Thanks Mamy
I’m so sorry your husb is struggling. Thinking of you both x
My avatar is only fancy dress, I think anything over the face/head is alien to us, but needs must sometimes.

A very worrying time for you both.
