Regular Monitoring of Indoor air quality of Operation Theater (OT) can prevent the chances of Surgical Site Infections (SSI)

 Sterility means free from viable life which has the tendency to reproduce and spread disease causing germs and bacteria which if uncontrolled gives birth to dangerous viruses. Sterility alone can not be achieved only by cleaning or applying antiseptic cleaners on the equipment or furniture. Sufficient supply of good air quality within the OT is the other tool which is required to maintain microorganism free environment during the operations.

Monitoring of Indoor air quality or environment plays a major role in defining the hygiene of an OT. In OTs chances are higher that microorganisms suspended in air get settled in operation site which continues to grow later leading to post-operative surgical site infections. An OT requires a controlled environment where air should be purified, humidity under control and sufficient Air exchange. Thus a clean air should circulate with every minute taking out the toxins from the OT out of it. The more controlled air exchange in an OT the more it will prevent reproduction of any kind of bacteria or microorganisms in the environment. Thus it is equally important for Hospital administration and management to ensure that air quality of OTs are monitored regularly. But alone air exchange will not serve the purpose. How efficiently HEPA filters performing also determine the quality of indoor environment. HEPA filters, keeping dust particles out of the OTs, need to checked every six months to ensure that filters installed are working properly and not chocked. 

NABH guidelines also under the maintenance of system suggest -Validation of system should be done every 6 months and as per ISO 14644 standards. This should include:

• Air particulate count

• Temperature and Humidity check

• Air Change Rate Calculation

• Air velocity at outlet of terminal filtration unit /filters

• Pressure Differential levels of the OT with respect to ambient / adjoining areas

• Validation of HEPA Filters by appropriate tests.
