As The World Grows Up – The Demand For High Tech Health Care Grows With It

Remember when you talked about the US and Europe as first world countries and the rest of the world as second or third world countries? Remember when Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, China and even Korea were not even considered in the global GDP numbers?Well a lot has changed in the past twenty years and now all of these countries are becoming mass exporters of goods to the US and the rest of the world. China is now an economic powerhouse and South Korea is building world-class cars.

Countries in the African continent and South America are now becoming more industrialized and with the use of the digital network are in touch with the world via Facebook and Twitter. And, like the rest of the industrialized countries they want better health care for all their citizens.

Very few of the lesser industrialized nations have any domestic manufacturers of drugs and medical equipment so the vast majority is imported from Europe and the US. Some of it is also manufactured in China and the smaller Asian countries. One of the biggest challenges is providing hospitals and health care facilities that are designed to do more than just tread minor injuries. They require surgery suites and isolation rooms for many of the health care challenges these countries have to deal with and in many cases these facilities just don’t exist.

However, in many cases they have converted old buildings and even trailers into semi-surgery rooms with much of the same medical equipment we see in hospitals here in the US. The conditions in these facilities is not always sterile so post operative infections are very common. To help eliminate this problem a number of facilities and organizations that run these medical facilities have  looked to companies like Pure Air Systems to provide portable, high performance HEPA based air filtration systems to help reduce and eliminate the post operative infection problems.

Pure Air Systems has been producing commercial grade, high performance HEPA and Carbon based air filtration systems since 1985 for the residential, commercial, institutional and industrial markets both in the US and overseas. In the past three years PAS has shipped over 30 HEPA systems to medical facilities in Africa, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. These units are used to both pressurize and deliver HEPA filtered air in a surgery suite or operating room at rates up to 30 air changes per hour.

The PAS systems can produce up to 2000 CFM of HEPA filtered air through the use of a motor driven fan using a ECM motor that is rated at 120/240v 50/60 Hz so it will operate on any electrical system anywhere in the world. The digitally controlled motor allows for finite speed adjustment so it can be operated from 10% of volume to 100% in 1% increments. This allows for installation in various sized rooms using one system. The HEPA filters are all commercial grade, certified to 99.99% at 0.3 microns.

Rock, Paper, Scissors!

Remember when games were so simple all you needed was your hands to play. Rock, Paper, Scissors was one of those games and is still played today in various forms. The rules were simple, you could play with anyone at anytime and you didn’t need to buy anything. And most importantly, the game was the same no matter where in the world you played it.

Our world has become more complex with the ability to get information on anything at anytime and get at least 50 different versions of the same truth? Nothing is what it seems, and everyone who can write a Blog or story on-line is now an expert ( yours truly included). As a result, finding a TRUE expert is very difficult. This is especially true in areas where people are looking for relief from certain health issues. The amount of resources and alternatives in “health technology” is enough to drive you nuts.

For example, people who suffer from certain allergies or asthma are presented with hundreds of potential medical remedies along with hundreds of alternative or “holistic” remedies, each spouting their overall capabilities and references showing that they do work.  Even the most intelligent and resource knowledgeable individual can get confused with all this data.

The best way to separate the “wheat from the chaff” as they say, is to do some hard research, find who is using the medical treatment or device and then  evaluate the potential based upon the results from those individuals who share  the same problems. It is time consuming but with the advent of “Facebook” and “Twitter” you can now connect to thousands of people in days who can provide you some immediate insight.

There are many websites out there that can assist you in finding information that is specific to your needs and medical issues. Conversely, there are also thousands of websites that will provide misleading or inaccurate data and again you will need to validate the information. Then there are websites like the one available from Pure Air Systems, that provides both technical data, valid references and a generous amount of objective data on medical conditions and alternative methods for dealing with allergies and asthma related conditions.

Like the game Rock, Paper, Scissors, the Pure Air Systems website makes it easy and simple to find the information you need and that is appropriate for your particular situation.  “Play On”.  Please go to our website at:
