The Focus range of operating theatre ventilation systems provide superior air quality at operating theatre table level and are designed in modular form, enabling installation into existing theatre facilities.
In the pursuit of reducing airborne bacteria in operating theatres, the Focus range of clean air operating theatre ventilation systems provide a controlled distribution of biologically clean air at the operating table, while reducing the risk of contamination from outside the clean zone.
The Focus 1000 configuration provides superior air quality at the operating theatre table level compared to the conventional arrangement of individual terminal mounted HEPA filters in the theatre ceiling.
The Focus 2000 and 3000 are typically used in applications such as orthopaedic and neuro operating theatres where deep wound surgery is carried out and there is a high risk of hospital acquired infection via airborne routes.
The Focus range of operating theatre ventilation systems are designed to comply with the Australian Council on Health Care Standards (ACHS) guidelines for the air flow and velocity and at the operating table level and the performance requirements of the Health Technical Memorandum (HTM) 03 with respect to supply air velocity below the diffuser.
These systems are of a proven design where the air distribution profile has been demonstrated by computational fluid dynamic (CFD) modelling and validated by a full size installation.
