SecureAire White Paper: Particle Control Technology Combats Aerosolized Transmission of Mycobacterium chimaera

Todays Healthcare System faces the continuous challenge of increasing costs due to the 1.7 Million patients that are hurt by Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI’s) and tax the system by an estimated $20+ Billion each year. One of the more recent challenges concerning Hospital Acquired Infections in Cardiac Surgery is the airborne transmission of Mycobacterium chimaera, which has been linked to operating room equipment, deemed critical to the success of these surgical procedures. SecureAire recently researched and investigated the airborne transmission of Mycobacterium chimaera and found Particle Control Technology to be one of the few potential solutions in reducing this transmission. The below White Paper entitled, “Particle Control Technology Combats Aerosolized Transmission of Mycobacterium chimaera from Heater-Cooler Units during Cardiac Surgery”, explains the results of its latest Hospital Operating Room study in the context of Mycobacterium chimaera…
