ospitals around the globe employ cascade ventilation systems to maintain positive pressurisation of operating theatres. This protects the Patients and Staff from the ingress of infectious agents, dust and bacteria by providing an invisible barrier of positive pressure when doors are within these rooms are opened.
This is a well-established principle of hygiene and infection control used the world over.
This system can also be employed in Isolation Rooms, Aseptic Suites, Endoscopy suites, Pharmacies, Cardiac Catheter Laboratories, Sterile Services Departments, Interventional Radiology Suites, CAT 3 Laboratories and other specialist areas which may require infectious control.
