CLEANER AIR MEANS BETTER HEALTHCARE
Surgical site infections (SSIs) continue to constitute a significant fraction of hospital-acquired infections contributing to morbidity and mortality in the UK healthcare system. There are approximately 290,000 incidences of SSIs in the US each year, translating into economic loss of $8.36 billion. A significant portion of SSIs, in particular deep wound infections, have been proven to be airborne in origin or strongly correlate with increased bacterial air content. When current environmental systems and standards are not sufficient to ensure good air quality, supplemental controls with air systems by Aerobiotix are the answer.
