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.
