Hospitals and Clinics

Air filtration systems are obviously critical for hospitals and clinics, and must be capable of handling a wide range of contaminants, as well as meeting the more stringent air cleaning requirements of a medical environment.

Most hospitals have a central filtration system that is capable of removing relatively large particulates like dust, dander, pollen, fibers, mould spores and fungus using a combination of electrostatic precipitation, HEPA and UV light. This is normally sufficient to clean large public areas to an acceptable level of healthy indoor air quality.

However, because of their specialized air cleaning requirements, medical facilities generally require the use of additional air cleaning devices to support the central air filtration system, for example, to remove harmful contaminants released during certain procedures and reduce the spread of disease from isolation wards. Room air purifiers are ideal for this purpose, because they can help to capture contaminants at their source and provide localized air cleaning.

Of particular concern are nosocomial (hospital-acquired) infections. They can have serious consequences in terms of increased patient mortality, morbidity, length of hospital stay and overall costs. Immuno compromised patients (such as organ and bone-marrow transplant recipients, oncology and hematology patients) are especially at risk as their immune systems are more vulnerable to infectious pathogens, such as per gillus. The “Independent Study” box on the right contains information on peer-reviewed studies of Treeco Air Purifier effectiveness as an infection-control measure.

Areas where air purifiers are commonly used in hospitals and clinics include:

  • Anterooms
  • Bone marrow transplant units
  • Burn units
  • Clean rooms
  • Computer/data storage areas
  • Critical-care facilities
  • Emergency rooms
  • Geriatric/elderly care units
  • Hematology ICUs
  • Laboratories
  • Laser surgery theatres
  • Microbiology labs
  • Neonatal intensive care
  • Odor sensitive areas
  • Oncology wards
  • Operation theatres
  • IVF labs
  • Organ transplant wards
  • Pathology theatres
  • Pediatric isolation wards
  • Pharmacies
  • Respiratory sensitive areas
  • TB-isolation wards

 

Whether they are used in specialized locations, or simply in examination rooms, recovery rooms, patient suites and administrative offices, air purifiers supplied by Modern Alchemy Air Purifiers can help control whatever indoor air quality issues you are trying to address.

A key issue for hospitals and clinics today is the airborne transmission of diseases, which has been increasingly recognized as a serious hazard for health care workers and patients alike. According to the Ontario Health Technology Advisory Committee, room air cleaners are an important and necessary technology for decreasing the concentration of airborne infectious pathogens in a room, and for preventing the spread of diseases such as tuberculosis, chicken pox, shingles and measles. They can also be used in situations where a novel or emerging infectious agent, whose epidemiology has not yet been defined, is discovered and airborne transmission is suspected.

In addition to controlling the spread of airborne viruses, the high-quality room air purifiers sold by Modern Alchemy Air Purifiers are capable of treating a wide range of airborne contaminants, including allergens, chemicals, volatile organic compounds, bacteria, mould mycotoxins and odours through medical-grade HEPA filtration, activated carbon and germicidal UVC lamps.
