Ebola Outbreak: OPEC provides Australian Health Authorities with Safe Patient Transfer

With the terrible tragedy of the spread of the Ebola virus being a very real threat for other parts of the world, the Australian Government agencies have been looking into safe patient transfer.

OPEC Systems, through its subsidiary Mobilis Medical, offers the ISO-POD™ Patient Isolation Transport System which is designed to allow the medical treatment of patients while protecting healthcare personnel from harmful biologic or chemical environments. The ISO-POD is available as a negative or positive pressure system – for transporting contaminated patients through a clean area or clean patients through a contaminated area. The flow of air provided by the filtration system also helps cool and relax the patient.
