Symposium: Towards Zero Infections in Healthcare Facilities

Peter Ljubetic1, Mari Regner1, Clemens Bulitta2, Peter Höjerback1

You are invited to this Scientific Symposium to meet some of the most prominent researchers and experts within Infection Prevention and Ventilation of the surgical suite. The Symposium is specifically developed for you as Clinical Engineer, Infection Preventionist, Perioperative Nurse, Architect or Healthcare Executive, as well as other Healthcare Professionals and Researchers.


The current pandemic, along with continuously very high costs in both lives and money from surgical site infections, have made it obvious that improved air management is needed to cope with airborne infections. It is no longer enough to just focus on hand hygiene, cleaning and disinfection as the main tools for infection prevention. There clearly is a need to come up with innovative concepts and solutions for air management and ventilation, especially inside healthcare facilities. Healthcare authorities, HVAC manufacturers, infection prevention experts and building engineers will need to come together and focus on airflow optimization through changes to existing ventilation systems, novel air-purification and decontamination technologies as well as better airflow management.

 In this Symposium you will meet both researchers from top universities and healthcare professionals from top orthopedic clinics in Europe who will introduce you to the latest insights for infection prevention, including the rationale behind and features of a modern and robust technology called Temperature-controlled airflow. The focus of the symposium will be on the most demanding area of any hospital – the surgical suite with its operating rooms.

 The Symposium is sponsored by Avidicare AB. The company was founded in 2007 and currently has more than 250 installations of its unique Opragon ventilation system. Together with its partners, the company works “Towards Zero Infections” in healthcare facilities.


Each presentation will be followed by a Q&A session where you can ask your questions directly to the speakers.
