The Limitations of Conventional Laminar Airflow

The importance of clean air during surgery is critical to patient safety and infection control.

While healthcare believes conventional laminar airflow diffusers are delivering on their promise, it’s time to debunk the myth, once and for all. The reality is laminar diffusers alone don’t control the air as expected, and they don’t protect patients from surgical site infections (SSIs)—even when they exceed minimum requirements.

Our new whitepaper, Limits of Laminar Airflow in an Operating Room and How to Break Through Them, is packed with empirical data demonstrating what the air is actually doing in every operating room, and why. And it offers a proven technology that achieves zero-particle air and provides vastly superior patient protection from dangerous and costly SSIs.

An alternative method of controlling operating room airflow is proposed and shown to produce superior results.
