Adelaide Women’s and Children’s Hospital have proven that hospitals now have the choice to achieve HEPA standard filtration without upsizing their fans or ductwork. The Adelaide Women’s and Children’s Hospital implemented Plasma Shield into their recovery suite and importantly the results were recorded and assessed by researchers from the University of Adelaide. Their independent report confirmed that; • Measurements after the Plasma Shield confirmed the achievement of the HEPA standard filtration efficiency of 99.97% for particles of 0.3 microns; and • This implementation was achieved without upsizing the fan and ductwork system, due to the lower pressure drop of the Plasma Shield system. Independent analysis showed that notwithstanding the potential of close-range contact, the infection risk mitigation of this air treatment was equivalent to all staff wearing masks for their entire shift.
