Or. Parod brings innovation to the mobile negative pressure ICU room. donated to Busarakham Hospital and hospitals in the area Bangkok and surrounding areas Supporting COVID-19 patients
Prof. (Special) Dr. Anek Laothammathat, Minister of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation (TSU) announced the policy and work titled “Research and Innovation Leading Thailand to Fight Covid-19” along with handover Innovative mobile negative pressure ICU room For installation in hospitals and field hospitals which is an innovation used to support public health which received the National Research Office (NRCT) to support research funding for innovation development for the Thai Biomedical Engineering Association with King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL) as the operator, which has now been installed at Busarakham Hospital Veterans Hospital and Lerdsin Hospital Ready to install more than 20 rooms in July-August.
Professor Dr. Sirirek Songsiwilai, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education, said that since the outbreak of COVID-19 PSU has coordinated the integration between higher education. Universities and research institutes work together as one. and from the past covid situation PSU has supported drug research, test kits, vaccines, as well as supporting academic information. Research and Innovation Data analysis and follow-up to the Medical Innovation Operations Center and research and development of the Center for Covid-19 Situation Management (Prof. ) by the National Research Office (Wor. ) and supporting the establishment of many field hospitals in the area of the Orr.
Dr. Wiparat Deeong, Director of NRCT, said that in the epidemic of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 or COVID-19, NIH has supported research funding to develop “Innovative negative pressure mobile ICU room” to deal with the increasingly severe epidemic situation. The success resulted from the innovative development of mobile negative pressure ICU room. The research team has installed it to the hospital. and field hospitals in many areas of Bangkok and perimeter area Which needs to use a mobile negative pressure ICU to support patients with COVID-19 more conveniently from the readiness to use Therefore, it has been utilized at Charoenkrung Pracharak Hospital. Which has been very successful by this mobile negative pressure ICU room. Can be broadly limited to control germs in a limited area, with a size of 3×6.5 meters / unit, has a built-in anteroom, has an automatic air pressure control system. both in the case of opening and closing the door in each room with air suction system through the air filter to kill germs Highly efficient in filtering out small particles that may be contaminated with pathogens. To filter the virus and release it to the outside of the building as fresh air. Each unit can accommodate one patient and can be customized according to needs, such as an ICU room, examination room or emergency room. In addition, this innovation can also be applied in other situations. in the future. From now on, NRCT will continue to install for the hospitals that have been coordinated. To help deal with COVID-19 patients with the number of continually increasing
“Innovation of Mobile Negative Pressure ICU” is a research fund from TSU by NRCT for the Thai Biomedical Engineering Association, with Assistant Professor Dr. Nattapon Rerkkasemsan. Lecturer of chemical engineering department King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL) is the research project leader. To develop innovative movable negative pressure ICU rooms. to be used for severely ill patients. In addition, after the epidemic situation of COVID-19, the ICU room can also be used with patients with other respiratory communicable diseases such as tuberculosis, etc., responding to medical innovations. truly effective
