To assess the performance of the installed Novaerus devices.
Two small Novaerus devices were installed in patients' room in the Department of Infectious Diseases. One small Novaerus device was installed in a minor surgery room (non-sterile) in the Department of Infectious Diseases. One small Novaerus device was installed in the Bronchofiberoscopy Lab. One small Novaerus device was installed at the nurse station. One large Novaerus device was installed in a patient’s room in the Department of Tuberculosis and Pulmonary Diseases.
During the air disinfection performance testing period, the devices operated continuously, in 24/7 mode.
Results of microbiological tests of the air in the areas where the devices were installed revealed significant reduction in the number of microorganisms. Moreover, permanent elimination of unwanted odours in the tested rooms was noted.
The devices deserve to be widely used in healthcare institutions, and particularly in sites of high epidemiological risk. The device is simple and easy to use and does not require the use of additional appliances such as filters or catalysers or other harmful substances. It is also completely safe for patients and medical staff.
