OUR LADY OF THE LAKE HOSPITAL - OR ROOM ADDITIONS AND MODIFICATIONS

Baton Rouge, LA

Our Lady of the Lake Hospital wanted their operating rooms to not just meet the required standards, but to exceed them. Working closely with the project engineer as well as OLOL Hospital, Air-Side Equipment and Precision Air Products were able to find the solutions to their requirements. Precision Air Products is the leading manufacturer of high dilution operating rooms systems.

Typical operating room air distribution systems allow for 15 to 25 air changes per hour. To super clean the air, Precision Air Products utilized their model #Ortho Island and Cardio Island systems of recirculating fans controlled by VFD’s. Also supplied was the complete ceiling T-Bar system with hepa filtered laminar flow diffusers. When the system is in the “operating mode”, the room air change rate is increased to 35-45 air changes per hour. The air change rate directly over the operating table is increased to 300-400 air changes per hours. This system provides the ultimate level of cleanliness OLOL required.

With Precision Air Products and Air-Side also providing field visits before and after the installation as well as start up and testing of the system, the performance of the system is documented to ensure that the OLOL requirements were met.
