Great news from California! The ultraclean operating room ventilation system Opragon 8 has received preapproval from the State of California’s Healthcare Access and Information (formerly OSHPD).
This opens the door for use of the innovative Temperature-controlled Air Flow (TcAF) for inpatient operating rooms throughout California. Avidicare has proven the infection reduction efficacy of this technology across Europe over the past fifteen years. Since the first installation in 2007 and with today more than 300 installations, there has been extensive scientific validation of the benefits of TcAF. This includes making the whole room an ultraclean workspace with a uniquely robust airflow, high installation flexibility and excellent working conditions.
Avidicare continues to offer technical information and design support to our partners in the United States.
