At Kaplan Sinus Relief, the safety of our patients is our number one priority. We’re always working to integrate the safest, most effective technologies in our practices. In this spirit, we are proud to announce that we’ve recently installed Novaerus air dis-infectant systems in all of our patient rooms and surgery rooms. Novaerus is a new air dis-infectant technology that has been shown to reduce the amount of SARS-CoV-2 (aka COVID-19) in the air by up to 99.99% in less than 15 minutes (in a space of 16m3).

While medical facilities have long taken steps to disinfect their surfaces, and doctors have maintained rigorous hygiene practices when it comes to washing their hands, none of these precautions address the problem of air-born pathogens and pollutants. According to the WHO, inside air can be up to 10 times more polluted than outside air, and every one in ten patients picks up a new infection during a hospital stay.

The Novaerus uses plasma technology to target and destroy these pathogens, effectively reducing their presence and the likelihood of transmission from patient to patient or from doctor to patient. Novaerus technology is backed by both independent clinical trials and case studies and has also been shown to significantly (97% – 99.99%) reduce the presence of viruses and bacteria such as Influenza A, MRSA, Tuberculosis, Measles, and the Norovirus. 

With the installation of Novaerus dis-infectant systems, patients who come to Kaplan Sinus Relief can rest assured that all is being done to protect and improve their health and wellbeing. Breathing easier just got a whole lot simpler.
