Research review determines aerosol-generating procedures that require enhanced personal protective equipment — ScienceDaily

Autopsy, airway suctioning and cardiopulmonary resuscitation are among the list of medical procedures that pose a risk of spreading COVID-19 from a patient to their health-care provider by creating aerosols, according to new research published in the journal BMJ Open Respiratory Research by an international team of experts including occupational health, preventive medicine and infectious disease specialists.

The team, led by University of Alberta medicine professor Sebastian Straube, carried out a systematic review of public health guidelines, research papers and policy documents from around the globe to determine which procedures are classified as aerosol-generating.

For Honor Will Be Enhanced On Next-Gen Systems

For Honor will receive enhancements on next-gen consoles, Ubisoft has announced. The PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of the game will play at higher resolutions at launch, and a framerate boost is due in December, too.

At launch, the Xbox Series X and PS5 will be able to play For Honor at 4K resolution through backwards compatibility. On Xbox Series S, the game will be playable at 1080p. This is not a dedicated next-gen version, as such, but the current-gen version will hit the highest resolutions it can.

Player profiles, purchases, and inventory will also carry across to next-gen, meaning that you will be able to migrate fully over to your new console at launch without fear of leaving anything behind.

In December, an update will also enable 60 FPS gameplay for all next-gen systems, including the Series S. The game has previously had a locked 30 FPS framerate
