Aims and Study Design

Surgical site infections (SSI) are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in US hospitals. Airborne bacteria in operating rooms may contribute to SSI. In Europe but not the US, regulations exist to limit the airborne bacterial levels in the operating theater. In the 1st part of a multi-part study, we sought to determine whether airborne bacterial levels can be reduced by the HUAIRS system.

Results

A. Particulate Studies

B. Microbial Studies
