Here at Georgian Anesthesia and Medical Corp., we want to help you do what’s best for your medical facility and the patients you serve. When it comes to keeping your patients and staff healthy, one thing you will definitely need is effective air purification, and particularly aerosol air purification. In this article, we’ll go over more about what aerosol air purification is so that you understand why it’s so necessary for your medical practice.

What are Aerosols?

 First, let’s define what an aerosol is. To put it simply, aerosols are microscopic particles of liquid or solid matter that become suspended in a gas–for example, an aerosol hairspray suspends tiny droplets of hair product in a gaseous cloud. In a medical context, the aerosols we are most concerned about are particles of saliva or mucus that become suspended in the air, as these particles can spread diseases from person to person.

What is Aerosol Air Purification?

 Aerosol air purification, then, is a method of removing these aerosol particles from the air. Some air purification systems use a series of filters to trap these particles and remove them from the indoor atmosphere, while others use other methods to neutralize any pathogens present in aerosol droplets.
