Manage Critical Healthcare Environments with Phoenix Controls

According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, 5-10% of patients contract at least one hospital-acquired infection (HAI) during their hospital stay. This statistic is alarming, considering that hospital treatment aims to prevent and stop illness, not cause it. Aside from putting the health and safety of people in danger, HAIs cost the U.S. healthcare system billions of dollars per year! So what can be done to manage critical healthcare environments and protect patients?

What about a precise, protective and complete airflow management system? A system that provides fast, stable and repeatable space ventilation and pressurization control that supports a variety of healthcare settings including standard operating, patient, isolation and pandemic room requirements. Since 1985 Phoenix Controls has contributed to the safety, simplicity, and sustainability of critical healthcare environments. With a global network of partners (including Flow Tech!) to assist with design and space requirements, Phoenix Controls minimizes the spread of infection and provides the best energy savings options without compromising patient, staff or visitor safety.

Healthcare Applications for Phoenix Controls

Operating Rooms

Whether or not the OR suite is occupied, maintaining the required air change rate and keeping the suite positively pressurized at all times provides the best environmental quality and helps reduce the risk of infection. Phoenix Controls provides full airflow control to maintain a sterile space without compromising sustainable practices.

SMARTSUITEĀ® Airframe for Operating Rooms

New to Phoenix Controls’ critical healthcare solutions is the SMARTSUITEĀ®. Phoenix partnered with SLD Technology to design a self-contained modular system that brings airflow, filtration and pressurization control, and real-time monitoring of critical air quality and infection factors. It can be customized to any surgical space, and is assembled in a separate controlled environment so it can be installed quickly on site. Learn more about this new solution!

Patient Rooms

In simple ducted-exhaust applications, like patient rooms, the Phoenix Controls system improves patient comfort and healing. To increase room flexibility, systems can be upgraded so that patient rooms can be quickly switched to negative-pressure beds in the event of a pandemic or outbreak incident.

Isolation Rooms

Minimize the spread of airborne infections by maintaining negative pressure in the space. Phoenix Controls pressure monitors integrate easily with controllers, providing a local display, alarm and network integration.

Hospital Pharmacies

In-hospital pharmacies are frequently required to prepare Compounded Sterile Preparations (CSPs) in cleanroom-like environments. The Phoenix Controls healthcare solution helps organizations comply with the requirements of U.S. Pharmacopeia Chapter <800> by providing all the ventilation and airflow control requirements needed for ISO Class 7 and ISO Class 5 environmental conditions.
