Considerations for Modern Operating Room Air Distribution
Due to the ever-increasing demand for valuable ceiling space, modern operating room (OR) ceiling and air distribution systems must continuously improve and adapt to meet the demands presented by ceiling mounted medical equipment.
Airborne infection isolation rooms (AIIR) are used for patients with easily communicable airborne disease. When there is a shortage of AIIR, existing patient rooms (or hotel rooms in temporary care facilities) can be converted to negative pressure isolation rooms. Price Fan Filter Units (FFU) can be used in three configurations to retrofit these existing spaces.
