VidaShield™ UV-C Air Purification System is effective at reducing harmful pathogens in an occupied space.

 We're There®

 
 
 

The patented* VidaShield continuous UV-C air purification system is specifically designed to reduce the levels of bacteria and fungi in treated air and reduce the settling of viable bacteria and fungi from treated air on surfaces.

Pathogens float on air currents and land on surfaces very similar to how they travel in a snow globe.

Here's how the VidaShield Continuous UV-C Air Purification System works. 

Dr. Robert Rothstein, CMO, VidaShield, shares his clinical experience as former VPMA from Johns Hopkins Suburban Hospital.

Dr. Linda D. Lee, CSO, VidaShield, explains the dangers of contaminated air to the healthcare system and its patients.

Dr. James S. Prine, MD, PA is recognizing fewer staff sick days, improved indoor air quality and reduced odors with VidaShield.

Pathogenic aerosols like C. Diff and MRSA travel on air currents and pose a hazard to immunocompromised people.

 

 
 

Installing VidaShield is quick and easy. Follow the step by step instructions and you will be on your way to breathing cleaner air!

Maintenance for the VidaShield system is an easy process.

 
 

Healthcare and UV-C Lights
Since the early 1900s, UV-C lights have used within the healthcare industry to kill the types of microorganisms that typically cause indoor air quality (IAQ) problems - bacteria, mold, yeast, and viruses. Unfortunately, the exposure of UV-C lights is hazardous to humans, and therefore people cannot be in the presence of UV-C radiation.

It's Shielded
VidaShield is a unique application of powerful UV-C lights. This patented* device draws in room air through an array of quiet fans to an unseen UV-C neutralization chamber mounted above a traditional 2x4 ceiling light fixture and then returns the air to the room. Because the UV-C source is shielded within a mirrored chamber, VidaShield allows for 24 hours/day ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) in an occupied space.

Why consider the air?


Why not consider the air when other cleaning protocols are not solving the problem.

"Recent studies show the airborne dispersion of resistant organisms such as C. diff and MRSA often play a role in non-respiratory infections".(1)

More and more studies are indicating hospital air as a potential source of contamination that may result in healthcare-associated infections. These studies show that hospital air is a potential route for transmission. They also show that individual air samples on average were 2-8 X more contaminated than surface samples.

Consider the Air:
Research documents on the condition and control of air within healthcare organizations.

Reducing the contamination in the air can result in some cases the reduction of the settlement of bacteria on surfaces – thus providing less chance of cross contamination on hands and equipment.
Use of a continuous UVC Air Purification system has a positive effect on reducing airborne bacteria and fungus.
