Pandemics and Global Infection Risks

Containing and safely treating individuals with contagious diseases like ebola or H7N9 often requires intense protocols that are unavailable in remote areas.

  • Increases in global air travel have been a boon for global commerce, but also carry increased risks of pandemics

  • The ebola crisis in 2014 killed thousands of West Africans and was eventually contained, but not before limited spread to Western countries

  • Contagious viruses like SARS, H1N1 and various mutations spread through the air, which lead to outbreaks in Asia and internationally

"China has reported 211 deaths from H7N9 bird flu in the first four months of the year so far. That is almost three times higher than the human fatalities from the strain for all of 2016."

"The CDC has been working on a vaccine against H7N9 just in case it's ever needed and is starting work on a second one now because it's started to mutate.

 

"It's a cause for concern, that's for sure," [Tim] Uyeki told NBC News. "The surge in numbers of human H7N9 cases in China is definitely a concern."

"In 2014, more than 11,300 people were killed in the worst-ever outbreak of the virus [ebola] in West Africa,"

airPHX Technology & Global Health

airPHX technology is easily deployed in remote and critical locations as part of a strategy to address pandemic risks. Outbreaks of ebola in West Africa, H7N9 in Asia, and other global health risks could be managed more safely with the presence of an airPHX device that kills pathogens in any treated space. Portable units are part of an effective rapid response to global health emergencies.

  • Mobile Hospitals

  • Infectious disease facilities
  • Rapid response to bio-terror

  • Continuous treatment of critical government facilities

airPHX clean air technology is unique as a portable, effective tool for health care workers and patients in a world with increasing risk of epidemics.
