Air quality becomes a matter of life and death in India, hospitals partner with HealthWay a global leader in medical grade air cleaning systems.
Online PR News – 21-July-2016 – Pulaski, New York – As India's air pollution becomes a matter of life and death, medical institutions, hospitals and clinics have turned to Central New York Based HealthWay, to provide technologically advanced medical grade air cleaners which have been proven to capture particles at a 40x more efficient rate than HEPA filters, what hospitals have traditionally used to clean indoor air.
A growing body of research covered by the Washington Post in May of 2016 indicated that India's air pollution has become a matter of life and death. The study, published in May in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, suggests that outdoor air pollution in the country is contributing to more than half a million premature deaths each year at the cost of hundreds of billions of dollars.
One study published last year in Nature, for instance, estimated that a type of pollution known as "fine particulate matter" — tiny toxic particles that can be released by a variety of sources, including the burning of fossil fuels or organic matter is responsible for three million deaths per year Worldwide. HealthWay President Vinny Lobdell stated, "our patented and innovative air cleaning systems capture these ultrafine particulates that are now known to actually cause death." He continued by saying, "Most air cleaners on the market today do very little to address ultrafine particles, while we focus our offering around handling the most dangerous and toxic air pollution including ultrafine particulate."
India currently has 11 out of 20 of the most polluted cities in the world. Most of the pollution comes from industrialization, heating fuel and combustion of engines. Indoor air pollution has gotten so bad that Indian Hospitals have had to take extra precautions in dealing with the levels of pollution. Green leaf hospital, Surat, Danashivam Hospital, Jaipur, Virar maternity Hospital, Mumbai and Welfare hospital, Bharuch, have all called on Central New York based HealthWay to provide patented air cleaning systems to specifically deal with the ultrafine particle levels.
HealthWay air cleaners, come in many form factors and in hospital settings can be customized to meet the very specific need of the partner. HealthWay's award winning and patented DFS technology has also been independently tested and certified to capture 99.99% of all particles down to .007 micron in size. Further testing shows that DFS technology actually prevents microbial growth inside the filter providing added protection to a patient in mission critical environments. The line of products manufactured in upstate New York can be fit to meet any CFM requirement and independently certified and tested to provide better than HEPA efficiency.
