SEMINAR: New Generation of Ventilation Systems in Sensitive Indoor Environments

SEMINAR: New Generation of Ventilation Systems in Sensitive Indoor Environments

Seminar Abstract 

Avidicare AB is a Swedish company with a vision that no one shall become sick in a hospital. Its mission is to help hospitals work towards zero infections by delivering ultra-clean air in operating rooms. This minimizes the risk of the most painful and costly infection of all – the surgical site infection. With a scientifically validated system that has been installed and measured in more than 120 operating rooms, Avidicare will during the seminar share measurement data from live surgery showing how its novel ventilation system maintains a very low number of bacteria in the air. This has been shown in several published research studies to dramatically lower the risk for surgical site infections, along with adequate use of tight clothing on staff and suitable antibiotics. In view of the rising threat of anti-microbial resistance and even a future without antibiotics, the need for ultra-clean air is expected to grow substantially. Other important aspects such as improving working conditions and minimizing energy need are also addressed during the seminar.
