We are experts in ventilation and health. We would like to share some information that we find particularly interesting and important.
Multi-drug resistant bacteria are becoming increasingly common, and are now found both in the healthcare sector and in society in general. Multi-drug resistance means that the bacteria have increased resistance to several different types of antibiotics. This does not mean that they are more aggressive or disease-inducing than non-resistant bacteria. It means that when they cause an infection, they are often difficult to treat and eliminate in medical environments.
We can go far back in time to describe why the development of infection prevention measures in surgery is important. Below are a number of important discoveries and actions that have moved development and patient safety forward.
On a typical day, we encounter various forms of ventilation. At home, at work and in the grocery store there are systems to ensure that the air is fresh and healthy. How much do you know about the ventilation systems and why we need them?
