Surgical theaters are not only clean inside, but the air supplied to them is delivered in laminar flow and filtered to maximize sterility. This commonly requires a proper ventilation system built into the infrastructure of the building. What if you’re a hospital administrator and a need arises for another operating room, but upgrading the ventilation system would be way too expensive?
A new product called Arc Sterile from IMEX brings purified, surgical quality air to just about any environment. The portable system can be easily wheeled and quickly setup over a surgical table, turning any room into an OR. It features HEPA filters to clean the air and fans that sweep the environment free of unwanted particles.
The device already has the CE Mark for distribution in Europe, but no FDA clearance has yet been issued.
From the product brochure:
It is an aluminum structure cabin, with sliding screens panel and folding front opening polyvinyl door for entry of patients.
The equipment can act as a chamber of controlled indoor air quality for both, surgical procedures as well as for those that require aseptically special conditions, as isolation rooms.
In the technological design, it includes two columns of impulsion and air filtration to generate the sterile horizontal laminar flow.
Moreover, it also incorporates upper and lateral diffuse lighting, and allows you to incorporate accessories that improve overall working conditions (surgical lamps, technical bar, computers, isolation transformer, UPS, etc. ).
