Abstract : An apparatus for suspending and supporting a cover over a medical stretcher is described. The invention comprises an assembly which when used with the stretcher, forms an inverted 'U' in a transverse position over the stretcher, and thereby suspends and supports a cover over the stretcher and the patient thereon. A plurality of these assemblies, when used with suitable spaces, such as connecting rods, may be used to form an integrated unit of the desired length to support and suspend a cover in the shape of an inhalation therapy-type canopy over a stretcher and over a patient.
