THE BANE OF INDOOR AIR QUALITY AT HEALTHCARE
Healthcares are a cesspit of air-borne diseases because patients can be carriers of infectious diseases or viral, fungal or bacterial infections.
SOURCES OF INDOOR AIR POLLUTION
A doctor sees more than a hundred patients on a daily basis in a single room, which exposes her to various types of infectious diseases and infections.
Surgical site infections (SSIs) are the second or third-most common type of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). Surgical complications cause considerable morbidity. SSIs mostly occur while performing in the operating theatre (OT). This is one of the key reasons why the installation of MEDIPURE® is vital in OTs.
ICUs, Post-operative care and Burn Wards
Several kinds of patients are treated in ICUs, post-operative care and burn wards, mostly in air-conditioned rooms. Since ACs keep circulating foul air throughout the day, these rooms become a magnet for several airborne allergens.
Maternity wards, Neo-natal and Pediatric ICUs
Maternity wards and paediatric ICUs can be breeding grounds of several infections, exposing affected mothers and infants at a time when they are most vulnerable.
Several hospitals are located in the heart of the city, where vehicular traffic and density of atmospheric pollutants are on the higher side. As a result, the indoor air quality in the hospital worsens, adversely affecting doctors, nurses and patients.
HOW TO TACKLE INDOOR POLLUTION IN HEALTHCARE
MEDIPURE® is designed to effectively eliminate indoor pollutants, harmful chemicals, and gases.
WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR IN AN AIR QUALITY MANAGEMENT MACHINE DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR HEALTHCARE
MEDIPURE® is a combination of 8 medical-grade filters making it more relevant for the healthcare industry.Activated Carbon Filter
When carbon is treated with oxygen, it causes numerous tiny pores to open up on the surface of the carbon. These pores are so many in number that one pound of activated carbon provides 60-150 acres of surface area with the objective to trap pollutants. The activated carbon filter works by the principle of adsorption where a gas element bonds with the surface of a solid. The solid material here being the activated carbon, which absorbs airborne pollutants equivalent to 60% of its weight. Once the airborne particles are absorbed by the filter, only the pure air flows out.HEPA Filter
A HEPA filter is always used in combination with an activated carbon filter to achieve highly efficient air filtration. The HEPA filter alone is the most efficient filter for people suffering from allergies and asthma. It removes 99.97% of airborne irritants which are as small as 0.3 microns.Ultraviolet
The ultraviolet filters are a game-changer. This new technology uses ultraviolet light to incinerate bacteria passing through it. This is beneficial for people suffering from asthma, lung diseases and allergies.Photo Catalyst Filter
These filters contain titanium dioxide. They purify the air with the help of UV light. When the UV light shines upon the titanium dioxide electrons, the electrons start interacting with water molecules and form hydroxyl radicals. The hydroxyl radicals then attack the larger organic pollutant molecules and turn them into harmless substances like water.Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP)
The ESP filter helps in removing fine particles like dust and smoke. It works by forcing the dirty gas pass through two electrodes where the first electrode is charged to a negative voltage and the second electrode is charged to a positive voltage. As the dust particles move through the first electrode, they pick up a negative charge and then they move towards the positive charged electrode. Since opposite charges attract each other, the dust and soot particles stick to the positive electrode.
