Globally there are many challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and as a result many daily activities and processes should be carried out to protect staff and patients from airborne contaminants. Within healthcare, for example, a review of the infection prevention chain will be of priority to understand what improvements can be made for now and well in to the future.
Infection prevention teams and clinic managers may be asking “aside from PPE what else can I do to protect myself, staff, colleagues and patients/customers? What else is available right now in the fight against coronavirus?”
While it is impossible to ‘physically distance’ for many typical activities in ophthalmology clinics such as working at the slit lamp and providing IVT injections for example, there are measures that can be taken such as using slit lamp screens, although there is still an infection prevention risk. However, it is possible to minimise the risk and stress of working in close proximity even further with a clean air unit like the Toul Mobile.
The Toul Mobile, a sterile air zone unit with an integrated foldable instrument tray, makes it possible to further minimise the risk and stress of working in close proximity.
Why the Toul Mobile?
→ 99.995% of all particles and lint from the air that potentially carry bacteria or viruses are filtered out
→ a safe barrier is created between people that are in close proximity
→ the current SARS-Cov-2 coronavirus correlates to particles of size 0.05-0.15. These and many other sizes of potentially harmful particles are effectively captured by the Toul Mobile
The Toul Mobile is easy to use and transport between all types of operating and surgical preparation rooms, independent of ventilation system. It guarantees < 5 cfu/m3 air inside the sterile air zone and can be used in place of an instrument table near the procedure area, saving valuable space.
