Ventilation System Testing

IOM carry out the validation and annual verification of specialised ventilation systems - a principal requirement of HTM03-01 and HTM 2025 - relating to the design and testing of hospital ventilation systems for critical areas including:

  • Operating Theatre Suites
  • Conventional operating theatres
  • Ultra-clean operating theatres
  • Day theatres
  • Minor procedures rooms
  • Healthcare clinics
  • Recovery areas
  • Hospital wards
  • Sterile Service Departments including IAP rooms
  • Aseptic suites
  • Isolation rooms
  • Mortuaries
  • Pharmacies
  • IVF treatment suites
  • ITU departments
  • HDU departments
  • Category 2 and 3 laboratories

Providing UK coverage from our Stafford office, we offer extensive knowledge and expertise in the sector and will ensure the necessary validation work is carried out to fit in with your tight theatre schedules. The key tasks undertaken are airflow measurements, pressure cascades, particle counting, microbiological sampling, and auditing of air handling units.

New and old healthcare ventilation systems vary in complexity and any design or performance shortcomings can have potentially serious consequences in the battle to control airborne infection. Under-resourced and overworked hospital engineers, theatre managers and infection control departments can rely upon assistance from IOM to comply with HTM03-01 and HTM2025 in critical decision making that affects patient care in operating theatres and general healthcare environments.
