CARES - Critical Area Recirculation/Exhaust System
The CARES is a single 48 in. x 48 in. airflow device that combines the capabilities of the exhaust flow Fan Filter Unit (FFU) with a one-way, flush face radial flow diffuser to manage the airflow for an entire patient room.
Traditionally hospitals are built with very few negative pressure isolation rooms as these spaces are seldom used and are more expensive to build and operate than standard patient rooms. The CARES is a critical component of the isolation-ready patient room solution from Price and Antec Controls that allows a hospital to build one room that can operate with the air distribution requirements of a standard patient room or a negative pressure isolation room. Conversion of the air distribution system to a negative pressure isolation room at the touch of a button eliminates the need for time-consuming and unsightly field modifications in response to increased demand for isolation spaces.
The CARES is designed specifically for hospital patient rooms. This product provides an all-in-one airflow solution for isolation-ready patient rooms, allowing the hospital to change from standard operation of the patient room to isolation mode as required.span>Construction Options
