HEPA-Filtration Suytems for Natural DisastersCost-Effective HEPA-Filtration Systems Increase Emergency Patient Isolation Surge Capacity in Healthcare Facilities

Each season brings the potential for severe weather that can lead to natural disasters. A storm such as Hurricane Katrina and widespread flooding of New Orleans reminds us that natural disasters have the potential to create public health emergencies with a surge of patients requiring infectious patient isolation. Healthcare providers may need to respond quickly with emergency response measures such as increased isolation surge capacity.
