Hospitals and Clinics

Greater hospital hygiene, safety, and comfort

Humidity impacts both patient well-being and medical procedures. In arid conditions, patients suffer discomfort and even health deterioration, especially in burn units. However, moist conditions cultivate issues like mold growth and equipment damage. For hospitals and clinics to heighten the quality of care while easing staff and patient efforts, humidity must strike the perfect balance.

The Humidification Challenge

water stream 2352776

Low Humidity Threatens Health

Most critically, low humidity in clinics and hospitals threaten patient and staff well-being. Infection rates soar as viruses and bacteria are free to roam in dry air.

In areas like burn units and maternity wards, dry air complicates the healing process and can even disrupt surgical procedures through electrostatic discharge (ESD).

Excess or Fluctuating Humidity Hinders Efficiency

But humidifying large healthcare facilities is more complex than pumping the air with water.

Some medical devices are sensitive to humidity fluctuations, and excessive humidity can lead to condensation, mold, and pose additional health risks.

The Resource Cost of Most Humidifiers

Finally, humidification systems often consume a lot of energy. In large healthcare facilities, this gets costly, fast.

Finding the right balance between the advantages of humidification and the constraints of the hospital budget proves challenging, especially when maintaining the balance between humidity levels often proves so complicated.

The Self-Evaporative Solution

Prevents ESD Buildup

But self-evaporative technology helps hospitals consistently strike this balance. By generating tiny water droplets that repel one another, self-evaporative humidification spreads quickly and evenly across the facility.

This stable, non-fluctuating humidification prevents ESD buildup and contaminants from spreading, which in turn, prevents equipment malfunction and infections.

Creates Comfort and Accelerates Healing

And maintaining proper humidity levels (40-60% RH) does more than establish a comfortable atmosphere for patients and staff – it accelerates healing.

Moisturizing airways alleviates breathing difficulties and promotes tissue formation and cell regeneration. Additionally, humidity can help facilitate oxygen uptake, leading to reduced fatigue and better concentration.

Energy Efficient Systems

The benefits of self-evaporative humidification far outweigh the costs, which are additionally lowered by the sheer energy-efficiency of the self-evaporative process.

Hospitals and clinics can humidify and disinfect facilities or specific rooms with non-wetting moisture at a significantly lower energy cost compared to traditional humidification methods like steam, ultrasonic, atomization, and high pressure humidification methods.

Self-evaporative technology ultimately creates extremely clean, comfortable and controlled environments for a higher quality of care.
