CLEANER AIR MEANS BETTER HEALTHCARE
Surgical site infections (SSIs) continue to constitute a significant fraction of hospital-acquired infections contributing to morbidity and mortality to healthcare systems globally. There are approximately 290,000 incidences of SSIs in the USA alone each year, translating into economic loss of $8.36 billion. A significant portion of SSIs have been proven to be airborne in origin and correlate with increased bacterial air content.
The International Consensus Meeting on Musculoskeletal Infection is the definitive meeting of global leaders in orthopedic infection. Chaired by Dr. Javad Parvizi, the latest meeting was July 2018 in Philadelphia and attended by over 400 delegates.
By a 94% consensus, these leaders stated that: “the amount of airborne contamination in the active operating room should be minimized to prevent surgical site infection/PJI.” Only Illuvia HUAIRS is designed to reduce the possibility of surgical infections by decontaminating intraoperative air with a combination of advanced ultraviolet and HEPA technologies.
