Why UVC for the Operating Room? 

Studies as far back as 1937 (Duke University, Durham, North Carolina, and as recent as 2007 (Center for Hip and Knee Surgery, St. Francis Hospital-Mooresville, Mooresville, Indiana) report the effectiveness of ultraviolet light in reducing overall post-surgical infection rates. In the Duke study, during the first five years of use, over­all infection rates on clean cases showed a significant decrease from 10% to 0.24%; on the orthopedic service, a decrease from 16.5% to 0.75% was reported. For the next 26 years, the overall infection rate was reduced to 0.34%. 
 
The St. Francis study (July 1986 to July 2005) shows the infection rate in operating rooms decreased significantly, from 1.77% to 0.57%, when UVC light was used, even when laminar airflow was eliminated. Further­more, the decrease in the infection rate for total knee replacements was also significant, from 2.2% to 0.5% (p <0.0001) 
 
With the already extraordinary, and still increasing, cost of infections (including hospitalization, physician care, nurses' salary, hospital insurance, death benefits in case of death, etc.), it's obvious that reducing infection rates is extremely important. And with health insurance no longer covering healthcare associated infections, proactive hospitals can avoid significant monetary waste by investing in proven technology that will reduce infections.
Ozone Purification Technology offers solutions within the medical environments to reduce hospital-acquired infections making it a safe environment for staff and patients. 
We manufacture UVGI systems that are proven to be effective in controlling airborne pathogens such as tuberculosis, influenza’s and the like. 
When extra sanitation is required the use of open UV system in hospitals, ambulances and other contaminated areas is effective in removing super bugs like MRSA.
