A vital issue for hospitals and clinics today is the airborne transmission of diseases, which has been increasingly recognized as a severe hazard to healthcare workers and patients. According to a study, room air cleaners are an essential and necessary technology for decreasing airborne infectious pathogens’ concentration in a room and preventing the spread of diseases such as tuberculosis, chickenpox, shingles, and measles. They can also be used when a novel or emerging infectious agent, whose epidemiology has not yet been defined, is discovered, and airborne transmission is suspected. Through the air purifier filtration system, patients will feel in good health with fast recovery. Upon the speedy recovery and discharge, they appreciate that you are doing everything to provide clean, fresh air while removing indoor contaminants.
Dr. Mohamed Ali’s dental office has a central filtration system capable of removing relatively large particulates like dust, dander, pollen, fibers, mold spores, and fungus using a combination of electrostatic precipitation, HEPA, and UV light. This usually is sufficient to clean large public areas to an acceptable level of good indoor air quality. Air purifiers help us to remove harmful contaminants released during specific procedures and reduce the spread of disease. It also helps to capture contaminants at their source and provide localized air cleaning.
What do ventilation systems accomplish?
The ventilation system is a maintenance priority at our office. Due to the nature of the airborne and other types of germs, ventilation systems protect patients and visitors from contracting illnesses.
Hospital infections are a concern
As we know, the dentist office is identified with an urgent need to address our indoor air quality, particularly as we consider reopening for business amid the COVID-19 pandemic. To protect our patients from sickness and improve treatment, high-quality air purifiers help us a lot. Our thoroughly vaccinated dental team, proper handwashing, personal protective equipment, hand gloves, gowns, face masks (preferably with fluid shield), face shields, hair protection, and goggles/eyewear are the other preventive steps toward infection control at Dr. Mohamed Ali’s dental office in San Francisco. Through the air purifier filtration system, our patients feel in good health with fast recovery.
In the medical world, nosocomial diseases are defined as those that emerge in a hospital setting. They can either come from any medical staff or the surrounding environment. Healthline Networks define a condition as a nosocomial infection if it infects someone previously visited the hospital for a different health-related reason. The patient will not have displayed any symptoms of infection. For every 100 patients in the US, approximately 9.2 of them develop a nosocomial disease, which may develop during or after admission, surgical procedure, or discharge. Patients may feel the effects of nosocomial infections anywhere from 48 hours after being admitted to 30 days following an operation.
Advantages of air purifier:
- An air purifier helps lessen allergy and asthma triggers, harmful chemicals, gases, and odors.
- Air purifier traps the aspergillus fungus spores inside the filter, thus, beneficial to asthmatic patients.
- Air purifier saves everyone in the hospital from toxic volatile organic compounds and microbiological contaminants.
- Nitrous oxide can stimulate little disorientation to the staff’s long-term health issues if it is not ventilated perfectly.
- Protects from bioaerosols, that may lead to adverse effects on respiratory function and cause lung function impairment.
- Air purifier protects from mercury vapors from exposure during the amalgam fillings and its’ removals. The mercury from these vapors can travel to the kidneys, liver, intestines, heart, brain, and other organs very fast, causing severe chronic health issues.
- Reduces the risk of heart disease and improve cardiovascular health.
- Removal of tuberculosis bacilli from the air (tuberculosis containing droplet nuclei are approximately 1-5 microns in diameter).
As we already know, our hospital is a place where you go to treat your dental issues. Still, it’s also a place where many airborne viruses may get infected as every patient carries viral, fungal, or bacterial infection or suffers from several contagious diseases that can adversely affect both the staff working there and the patients. The polluted air quality will only make them feel worse. To deal with every infection and safeguard our staff and patients’ health, we use high-quality room air purifiers. These air purifiers can treat a wide range of airborne contaminants, including allergens, chemicals, volatile organic compounds, bacteria, mold mycotoxins, and odors through medical-grade HEPA filtration, activated carbon, and germicidal UVC lamps.
