High-quality air in a medical facility is just as important as qualified staff treating the patients. Hospitals are known to be host to a high concentration of germs and infections making it a contamination zone. And while the cleaning and disinfecting procedures ensure germ and bacteria-free surfaces, the air patients and healthy attendants inhale cannot be overlooked either.
Therefore, hospital-grade air purifiers are imperative for hospitals and clinics to avoid the contamination of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and nosocomial infections. Since the covid-19 outbreak, government regulations regarding air quality cannot be compromised as this infection primarily spreads through the air.
How do air purifiers help?
Hospital-grade air purifiers are conspicuous devices that do not interfere in daily operations. These devices simply work as air conditioners, as they don’t need to be carried to every area sequentially during the cleaning process. The compact and unobtrusive design and functioning of these air purifiers make them a salient feature in all hospital waiting rooms, hallways, and also operating rooms.
What to look for in an air purifier?
The selection of a hospital-grade air purifier largely depends on the room it’s going to be set up in. For example, burn units, and ICUs require a more sophisticated air purifier than regular waiting rooms and hospital hallways. So, consult with your medical supplies representative from Elite Medical Accessories to help you find the right pack for your medical facility. Apart from this, the one primary feature to always look for in an air purifier is the HEPA filter.
High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters are engineered to capture airborne particles from moving from mixing into the air using a dense random arrangement of fibres in the filtration system. HEPA filters are a standard issue for all air purifiers especially for medical settings today. First launched in the early 1960s, this technology pioneered the reduction in indoor pollution along with chronic asthma symptoms. As of today, the U.S. Department of Energy requires that all air purifiers must filter at least 99.97% of airborne particles down to 0.3 microns. Elite Medical Accessories’ Jade Air Purifier filters up to 0.1 microns including Covid-19, SARS, COV-2 particles.
Therefore, installing FDA-approved medical accessories and equipment in your facility is vital for containing highly contagious coronavirus infections.
