Operating theatre air

Operating theatre air

The air around us is full of particles such as dust, dirt, smoke and liquid droplets. Some of these particles will be bacteria-carrying, also called ‘colony forming units’ (CFUs).


Bacteriologically, the air in an operating theatre is as dirty as the air anywhere else, only it matters more because of what is happing in the space 🦠.


The microbiological contamination or bio-burden of the air in the operating room is generally considered a risk factor for SSI, even during surgery on a ‘clean’ wound.


MAT provides highly effective critical ventilation and decontamination solutions designed to eliminate airborne bacteria in the operating theatre suite. In so doing, they improve surgical outcomes and reduce the need for antibiotics.
