Specific application to hematology

  • Hospitals

Applications

Concerns

Hematology department performing heavy chemotherapies and bone-marrow transplants (pediatrics and adult). A strong commitment (chief physicians, head nurses, infection Control physicians) to control infectious risks and Aspergillus notably: development of new protected environments (to increase room capacity for fragile patients or during construction work particularly).

Solution

Installation of mobile PLASMAIR units in the rooms, adjacent areas and corridors in all departments at risk.

Results achieved

  • Protection of hematology departments, Infection risk control, notably Aspergillus related
  • Rooms classified as High Risk Protective Environments

Concerns

Hematology department performing both allograft and autologous bone-marrow transplantations (pediatrics and adult).

A strong commitment (chief physicians, head nurses, infection Control physicians) to control infectious risks and Aspergillus notably.

Solution

Installation of mobile protective environments IMMUNAIR in all rooms at risk.

Results achieved :

  • Protection of hematology departments, Infection risk control, notably Aspergillus related

Users and Experts comments

- Professor Alain Fischer, Chief Clinician of the Immuno-Hematology Department of the Necker Enfants Malades Hospital, Paris, France :

«Unquestionable efficacy of Immunair in reducing bacterial flora and above all fungal flora. Results are satisfying with regards to reproducibility and therefore enable prolonged use.»

«After having tested the immunair™ iso system, I have a very favorable opinion concerning the effectiveness of the device for the prevention of fungal infections and infection risk in general. Our level of confidence in the immunair™ iso system allows us to anticipate the utilization of this device in all of our current applications.»
