DALLAS (KRLD) - James Griffin owns the health care software company called Invene.

He along with anesthesiologist Dr. Peter Baek came up with the idea for a new mask against the coronavirus. Griffin says they created a 3D adapter.

Griffin says, "That turns a snorkel mask into a reusable n95 mask. The purpose of this is to serve as a last resort for ICU, ER and anesthesiologist doctors who are on the frontlines and might be forced to wear n95 masks day after day. It's kind of like a last resort mask."
