Aerosol generating medical procedures (AGMP) are any procedure carried out that can induce the production of aerosols of various sizes, including droplet nuclei.
Medical procedures that generate aerosols or droplet nuclei in high concentration present a risk for the opportunistic airborne transmission of pathogens not otherwise spread via the airborne route.
Contaminants diffuse quickly to the entire volume of the room when emitted. Capture at the source significantly reduces the total amount of aerosolized contaminants and total time to get the room’s air quality to baseline levels, reducing turnover between patients.
Our capture systems are present in hospitals, medical, and dental clinics and are used by anesthesiologists, ENTs and dentists among others. Our systems are available in variable configurations designed to meet your specific needs.
