Patient Isolation Equipment
Each year, there are new outbreaks of communicable diseases. Some, like cholera and tuberculosis, are familiar to us, while others such as Ebola, MRSA or SARS have become more prevalent within the last few years. Barriers that house infected patients include filtered negative-pressure rooms where contaminated air is pulled and safely exhausted: the environment outside the room is protected. Enclosures that specifically safeguard an immunosuppressed patient from nosocomial infections provide HEPA-filtered, laminar airflow with positive-pressure: circulating pathogens from the outside are prevented from entering the controlled room.
Treatment for the patient is obviously critical, but containment is the primary task; exposure and spread of illnesses may result in dangerous epidemics. Contagions can be transferred through direct contact or airborne transmission. Healthcare facilities follow strict protocols to deal with patient isolation or quarantine. Biosafety level (BSL)-certified containment equipment is required for high-risk diseases, but less-serious illnesses can be controlled by simpler room environments, such as the EZ-UP cleanrooms featured below.
These rooms address airborne bacterium and viruses, but personnel also need to control surface toxins. Doctors and nurses wear personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gowns, gloves, safety glasses and respirators help to protect both themselves and their patients. Other equipment located in or near the isolation room used to promote and maintain cleanliness includes hand washing stations, air showers, glove box enclosures and sterilizers.
See below for Terra's selection of patient-isolation room equipment, sample-processing and analytical instruments, furnishings and supplies. They have been pre-selected for this application to help medical facilities with their purchasing efforts.
