Hospital Contamination Control (IsolationAir® System)

As a leader in environmental control systems across a variety of industries, Air Innovations understands that the needs of our customers extend well beyond simple control of temperature and humidity. That’s why we developed the IsolationAir® contamination control system for hospitals, extended care facilities and emergency preparedness centers. This portable solution, which includes on-board HEPA filtration, UV sterilization, air conditioning and ductwork, quickly converts a standard-sized patient room into a negative or positive pressure environment. IsolationAir improves air quality for patients and staff and expands institutions’ surge capacity for infectious disease outbreaks, trauma and burn care.

See our IsolationAir brochure for more details about our line of standard hospital contamination control systems.  See the IsolationAir Infographic.

Helps Meet Medical Surge Benchmarks from the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response:

Helps hospitals meet or address these critical benchmarks and Capability 4. Medical Surge, Objective 2:

  • Activity #9 Enhance Infectious Disease Preparedness & Surge Response
  • Activity #6 Provide Burn Care during a Medical Surge Response
  • Activity #1 Develop Emergency Department and Inpatient Medical Surge Capacity and Capability
    [Ensure Immediate Bed Availability by rapidly… using non-traditional spaces; Critical Care:
    rapidly expand capacity by adapting… areas for critical care]

Originally Designed to Meet U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Critical Benchmarks

  1. Critical Benchmark #2-2: Surge Capacity: Isolation Capacity
  2. Critical Benchmark #2-9: Surge Capacity: Trauma and Burn Care
  3. Cross-cutting Critical Benchmark #6: Preparedness for Pandemic Influenza

The IsolationAir System also meets the guidelines for the following organizations:

  1. CDC guidelines for infectious disease control in health care facilities
    1. Minimum of 12 air changes per hour via HEPA filters
    2. Use portable units as needed to augment ACH – recirculating room air
    3. Maintains minimum pressure differential of 0.01” (+ or – depending on the application)
    4. Maintains dehumidification controls
    5. Maintains backup ventilation – can be portable units – for emergency provision
    6. Ultraviolet light can be used for supplemental control
  2. AIA guidelines for design and construction of hospitals, incl. heating and cooling control to 75 °F
  3. ASHRAE – Chapter 7 in Applications Handbook regarding health care facilities
