Isolation Room Ventilation

Isolation Room Ventilation
01/03/2020

In these unprecedented times, it is critical that hospital ventilation systems are in proper working order. COVID-19 has heightened this importance more than ever.

Isolation Rooms Controlling the spread of infectious diseases is essential to maintaining a safe care environment. Whenever possible patients with known or suspected infectious diseases should be put under patient quarantine. Patients are quarantined in isolation rooms to minimise the spread of airborne infections. A patient isolation room helps prevent direct and indirect contact transmission, or droplet transmission of infectious agents. An infected patient can easily contaminate the surrounding environment, patient isolation rooms minimise contact providing effective infection control.

A key aspect of designing a isolation room is adequate room ventilation. A patient isolation room aims to control the airflow in the room so that number of airborne infectious particles are low, reducing the risk of airborne infection spreading making it crucial for all isolation rooms to have the correct exhaust air ventilation. A patient isolation room with appropriate air handling is particularly important for reducing the risk of micro-organisms being spread by airborne transmission from a source patient to susceptible patients and other persons.

Negative Pressure in Isolation Rooms Negative room pressure is an isolation room technique used to prevent cross-contamination from room to room. A negative pressure room has a ventilation system that generates negative pressure to allow air to flow into the isolation room but not escape from the room. Air flows naturally from areas with higher pressure into areas with lower pressure, preventing contaminated air from escaping the room.
