Precision Air Products' LIFE-ISLAND SYSTEMS® for Hospital Isolation Rooms Provide Patient and Staff Safety from Airborne Contaminants

Share Article

Hospitals seeking clean spaces for the protection of their immunocompromised patients and their staff benefit from integrated isolation room ventilation system.

The Precision Air Products Life Island family of integrated isolation room ventilation systems provide HEPA filtered laminar airflow, to protect patients, visitors and healthcare workers from airborne micro-organisms.

Life-Island Systems filter breathing air through a HEPA filter that is 99.99% efficient at removing bacteria carrying particles (0.3 microns or larger.) The air flows over the patient, partially pressurizing the area immediately surrounding the bed. The system then draws this air away from the patient, either returning it to be re-filtered, or exhausting it out of the room and building. The hospital may choose from horizontal or vertical airflow, and between corridor, end or low return. The system is self-contained, and therefore does not require increasing the size of the air handler serving the isolation room.

A unique feature of the Life-Island System is the sole-source integration of the ventilation with other typical isolation room amenities. The headwall contains utilities for med gases, power, communications and lighting. Optional swing walls provide an extra barrier between the patient and healthcare workers and visitors, and swing out of the way for room cleaning.

Like other Precision Air Products’ systems, hospital owners benefit from a ventilation system that looks and functions as a single system, from a single manufacturer. Unique value comes from the company’s involvement in design, installation and in-service training.
