Within the health industry, strict regulations seem commonplace. Maintaining a hygienic standard is almost robotic when looking at commonplace objects within most medical facilities. Things like sharps containers, disposable gloves/masks/needles/dressings, and industrial laundry sit in the background of daily operations.
Certainly, it seems that, in the interest of creating a healthy environment, we have put much thought into innovation. Innovation in sterility and sanitization alike. However, while many of these medical processes are simpler and easier, there is still one key factor being overlooked. That key factor is air quality.
Of course, there are many components to an air quality system. HVAC built into facilities plays an essential role in cycling indoor and outdoor air and filtering the intake from outside the building. However, the dimensions and location of the building can play a role in determining the overall air quality. Below are examples of medical buildings and how their air quality may be affected by design and other factors.
The Air Quality of Hospitals
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread throughout North America, hospitals are having to make tough decisions. Decisions about patient placement and capacity are a growing concern, and maintaining a low rate of spread can be difficult.
Additionally, contagious patients must be kept separate from the others and ward boundaries carefully maintained. These conditions are leading many medical professionals to seek innovative solutions.
With the proper supplemental air sanitization solutions, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) can improve for hospitals. Solutions that focus on destroying harmful bacteria, rather than trapping them, maybe a good solution. Air Sniper provides UVC supplemental air sanitization units for large scale facilities like hospitals.
The Air Quality of Doctors Offices
For IAQ and doctor’s offices, there are great options. However, location often plays a pivotal part in the IAQ infrastructure. Offices located in facilities that were not originally intended for medical tasks can struggle to maintain a consistent level of good air quality.
When using UVC technology to destroy, rather than trap, bacteria and harmful microorganisms, it becomes a different story. With test results that indicate 99.9% eradication of SARS-CoV-2 MS2 particles in a controlled environment, UVC technology is proving its worth. Plus, as Air Sniper provides a range of products, there are options for a diverse set of scenarios and buildings.
The Air Quality of Dental Clinics
Dental clinics face their own unique challenges with IAQ. Usually, the smaller spaces in dental offices are convenient, as they allow the treatment of multiple patients at one time. However, when IAQ becomes a consideration, these small spaces can lead to faster bacteria transfer and interaction between multiple people.
With Air Sniper products, it is possible to filter air rapidly. With the proper setup, the powerful CFM of the unit can increase IAQ while destroying harmful bacteria.
