More safety during operations with the protection of the surgical field

More safety during operations with the protection of the surgical field

To fight against hospital infections and the more and more resistant bacteria’s it has been developed Toul Mobile Laminar Airflow. Laminar airflow systems has been used for many years in the operating rooms and have shown a significant reduction of surgical site infection. Unfortunately it was not possible to use this technology in most existing operating rooms due to huge installation and renovation costs.

Toul has therefore developed a new mobile laminar airflow system which can be used in every operating room in addition to the existing ventilation system without installation costs. Conventional airflow systems do mostly not arrive at the operating field as they are hindered by the surgical light and the heads of the operating team. Toul is positioned very close to the operating field and therefore it is possible to reduce the contamination level up to 90 % for the operating field and Toul instrument table.

This technology has been used for more than 6 years in various hospitals in Sweden with success. They reduced their surgical infection rate below 1 % which saves the hospital money for extra treatment and longer hospital stays. Toul is also an excellent solution for field hospitals as it creates immediately sterile conditions wherever you need it.

Postoperative infections after transplantation
Transplantation of organs has become a successful modality for treatment of organ diseases. Improved techniques for organ preservation, surgical procedures, rejection management, and posttransplant infection prophylaxis and treatment have contributed to this success. Most identifiable of the advances in solid organ transplantation (SOT) is the development of potent immunosuppressive agents. However, the use of these agents in the prevention and management of rejection is closely interrelated to the development of

The danger from hospital infections is worsening because, increasingly, they cannot be cured with commonly used antibiotics. In 1974, only 2% of Staphylococcus aureus infections in the USA were MRSA (methicillin-resistant). By 2003, that figure had soared to 57%, and now is over 60%.
