Room Pressure Control

Whether designing or managing healthcare facilities, safety, compliance and infection prevention are crucial considerations. For over 20 years, leading healthcare facilities have relied on TSI's PresSura™ Room Pressure Products for effective, 24/7 monitoring of isolation rooms, operating rooms, and other specialized spaces. Over 50,000 TSI systems are used every day to ensure safety in leading healthcare facilities.

Healthcare Guidelines Compliance

Properly monitoring room pressure in critical pressurized spaces is crucial in complying with parts of the following regulations and guidelines: 

  • ANSI/ASHRAE/ASHE Standard 170-2008, Ventilation of Health Care Facilities
  • The Facility Guidelines Institute (FGI), 2010 Guidelines for Design and Construction of Health Care Facilities
  • Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Guidelines for Environmental Infection Control in Health Care Facilities

Best-in-Class Low Pressure Measurements in Critical Pressurized Rooms

In hospital isolation rooms and operating rooms, it's all about safety. And when it comes to safety, you need reliable, accurate measurements for your applications. TSI's unique pressure sensor, based on thermal anemometry, provides the most accurate results at the required 0.01 in. H2O (2.5 Pa) used in isolation rooms. HVAC pressure transducers simply can't measure up.

Optimal Room Configurations

Isolation Rooms  
Airborne Infection Isolation (AII) Rooms and Protective Environment (PE) Rooms require permanently installed devices to continuously measure and monitor room pressure. PresSura Room Pressure Monitors and Controllers provide the most accurate measurement at the point of interest (0.01 in. H2O, 2.5 Pa), and provide a simple visual indication of room status.

Operating Suites
Operating Rooms (OR) have unique environment monitoring and control requirements, including room pressure, air exchange rates and temperature and relative humidity levels. TSI's PresSura products meet these demands.

Pandemic Preparedness
For additional protection, many hospitals are creating multi-room isolation suites that include a patient room and PPE donning and doffing areas. A single TSI PresSura Monitor or Controller can accept, label, and display room pressure differential measurements from more than one room, providing a comprehensive solution.

Seamless Building Automations Systems (BAS) Integration

TSI's PresSura Room Pressure Products seamlessly integrate into your building automation systems (BAS). Once communicating, the facility's BAS System can monitor, data log, and trend room pressures, flow rates, ACH, temperature, humidity, alarms, and much more. Without using gateways, the PresSura products interface with the following standard protocols:
     + BACnet®
     + Modbus™
     + LonWorks®
