Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Outbreak Protection

By Pall Breathing System Filters in Mechanical Ventilation

 

Concerns about a Global outbreak of novel Coronavirus infection, similar to the 2002 outbreak, are rising, and the number of infected patients is increasing daily.

 

A Coronavirus pandemic may put the lives of thousands of people at risk and will challenge the health and well-being of healthcare workers. 

 

During the 2002 SARS epidemic many professional and infection control organizations recommended to use hydrophobic breathing system filters to efficiently contain the infectious Coronavirus.

Airborne Transmission of Disease

general routes of transmission

 

General routes of transmission

 

Certain micro-organisms can be carried in airborne particles (droplet nuclei,

1 – 5 µm). Infectious particles are released by infected individuals when they:

 

  • Cough
  • Sneeze 
  • Shout 
  • Sing

 

 

 

 

hospital risk of transmission

 

There is a risk of transmission in hospitals during aerosol-generating procedures related to ventilation:

 

  • Bronchoscopy
  • Endotracheal intubation
  • Airway suctioning
  • Positive pressure ventilation via face mask (e.g. BiPAP, CPAP)
  • High frequency oscillatory ventilation
  • Sputum induction
  • Aerosolized or nebulized medication application
