Dear IC community members,
In Lima Peru, we need to increase our capacity to operate MDR/XDR TB patients. So my hospital, Villa El Salvador at South of Lima is modifying one of the regular operating room and several hospitalization rooms.
We need specifications for TB IC in operating rooms, do you know any?
Do the exhaust air need to be filtered by HEPA filter before to outreach to the environmental or not, (we are not going to re-inject this air into the rooms),
Is UVGI in ducts an option? (we want to avoid use HEPA filters due to cost and problems in re-changes).
Thanks for your assistance,
Alberto Mendoza MD MSc
