In a new report provided by the Lancet COVID-19 Commission Task Force experts have identified “four key actions that represent the most effective, fundamental steps toward promoting healthier indoor environments and reducing the risk of airborne infectious disease transmission indoor.1” The four strategies are: Continue reading “Lancet Commission’s Task Force: Safe School, Safe Work, and Safe Travel”
Indoor Air Pollution Can Drastically Reduce Life Expectancies
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air is up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. That makes sense, as indoor air is often stale and recirculated, with many modern buildings lacking the ability to open windows due to energy-saving designs. But that notion that indoor air is five times more polluted becomes a potentially grave risk, based on a recent report regarding pollution and life expectancies. Continue reading “Indoor Air Pollution Can Drastically Reduce Life Expectancies”

Dwyer vs COVID-19 | Monitoring Air Flow & Pressure in Hospitals
Dwyer is committed to aiding in the fight against COVID-19. We have several products that are used in hospitals and the production of ventilators. Ventilators are used to aid COVID-19 patients who have low oxygen levels, support their breathing, and bring oxygen levels to a safe range.
In addition, isolation rooms need to remain at specific pressures and air cycles, so as to not risk exposure of airborne contagions to other patients or healthcare professionals during treatment. Today we’ll be discussing some of the products that Dwyer manufactures that are used in these applications. Continue reading “Dwyer vs COVID-19 | Monitoring Air Flow & Pressure in Hospitals”
