Results from a Swedish survey - investigations in operating rooms
Journal article, 2013
A survey is presented with data from 27 operating rooms in four county councils, where air flows, concentration of airborne viable particles and used clothing systems have been given from 111 ongoing surgeries. With the results from the survey, a simple mathematical expression based upon the dilution principle has been established to predict the concentration of airborne viable particles present in the operating room during ongoing surgery. This expression has shown relatively good agreemtn with reported results from ongoing surgery.
