Air purification in healthcare, elevated.
Across the globe, hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), or nosocomial infections, represent a real health and financial crisis. In the United States alone, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that more than 1.7 million patients have developed HAIs, leading to more than 99,000 deaths annually. The cost to our nation? As much as $45 billion every year.
Clearly, despite the use of rigorous infection control, HAIs remain a persistent problem. Traditional protocols focus on the patient, provider and surface areas. Current literature indicates that airborne transmission and surface contamination are virtually impossible to separate.
But with the LifeAire Systems technology, significantly reducing HAIs is possible. This revolutionary technology engages multi-staged levels of air filtration, purification and inactivation media to aggressively remove chemical, particulate and infectious biological pathogens from both outside and re-circulated air. Our patented design is mathematically modeled to kill or inactivate the most infectious biological pathogens—including anthrax spores—on a single pass through the system.
