Bubble operating theatre, Sierra Leone

In Kabala hospital, Sierra Leone, MSF has been trialling an innovative mobile surgical space that could revolutionise the way our medical teams conduct surgery in conflict zones and in the aftermath of emergencies.

The bubble operating theatre is a portable surgical unit equipped with an air filter that provides sterile conditions for surgery. Quick to assemble, the bubble OT is easily deployed and is designed for repeated use.
