Aerosol persistence in relation to possible transmission of SARS-CoV-2

How to judge the dangers of aerosol transmission of the Coronavirus?  Transmission the Coronavirus may occur through exhaled aerosol droplets from infected humans. There is still much controversy over whether aerosol transmission is important as a route of transmission. By measuring and modeling the dynamics of exhaled respiratory droplets, the authors assess the relative contribution […]

Risk of aerosol transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in cardiovascular care

Can Aerosol Transmission of the Coronavirus be dangerous in Clinical Solutions ? IAQS wants to highlight this interesting study. The authors measured the time for which small aerosol particles generated by a person exercising on a training bike persist in the air in an outpatient cardiology clinic. Aerosol persistence times were observed to vary greatly with the ventilation […]

Repeated transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in an overcrowded Irish emergency department elucidated by whole-genome sequencing.

Repeated transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in an overcrowded Irish emergency department elucidated by whole-genome sequencing. IAQS wants to highlight this interesting article which describes an investigation, using whole-genome sequencing, of the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 on two wards leading back to the Emergency Department (ED). Although the ED had good ventilation and single rooms patients had still […]

Introducing the Indoor Air Quality Society Partners

Introducing IAQS Partners “We know that many airborne infections could be avoided with smarter ventilation, while at the same time improving comfort and saving energy. We join IAQS to share what we have learnt from more than 15 years serving those who work the most sensitive areas of hospitals, mostly operating rooms, and to gain […]
