Negative Pressure Room and a Special Kind of Isolation Rooms in Hospitals
The Ebola virus can be transmitted via contact with an infected patient's bodily fluids, airborne particulate epithelial cells, and with the virus suspended in aerosol moisture (droplet transmission). Clinical studies performed by the U.S. Army in 1995 (1) and 2012 (2) also suggest that in cool, dry climates, the Ebola virus may exhibit airborne transmission. The patent-pending Odulair Ebola Isolation Unit provides virus biocontainment that address all of these known and possible modes of transmission.
EBOLA VIRUS TRANSMISSIONThe most common mode of transmission is through direct contact with an Ebola patient or the patient's bodily fluids. The virus must reach broken skin or a mucous membrane, but that is almost unavoidable because the patient and everything they touch are contaminated for up to seven weeks.

EBOLA ISOLATION UNIT: ULTRA BIOCONTAINMENT UNIT
Our modular building design Odulair Ebola Isolation Hospital utilizes a 40' x 40' (12.2m x 12.2m) module providing everything needed to isolate and treat two Ebola patients in a major hospital system. Multiple modules can be added horizontally and vertically to create a larger facility for increased patient use in almost any shape configuration. This module was designed for use in the major hospital systems in New York City and to provide a standardized Ebola Isolation Unit design for New York statewide use. This modular Odulair Ebola Patient Isolation and Treatment Unit can be operational in less than 6 weeks after receipt of order in the United States and it exceeds all of the CDC Guidelines for treating Ebola patients in a U.S. hospital.
This Odulair Ebola Isolation Unit is built in a tent to allow for rapid shipping via air freight. This portable isolation unit includes an 8-bed isolation tent with individual rooms for suspected Ebola patients (white tent), a small laboratory for testing blood samples on site (yellow tent connected at North), a small isolation tent for group treatment of confirmed Ebola patients (yellow tent connected at West), a protective environment medical staff tent (green tent in center), a technical decontamination tent for cleaning equipment (separate yellow tent), and a gross decontamination tent for PPE spraying (small red and yellow tent North of the technical decontamination tent).
Our container-based Odulair Ebola Isolation Unit provides the same level of patient isolation and medical staff protective environment as our modular building design, however, each area is significantly smaller. This allows the inclusion of four patient beds in the same 40' x 40' (12.2m x 12.2m) footprint with space to spare. The unique container design also makes this a more affordable option for smaller hospitals.
Odulair Isolation Units such as Mobile Biocontainment Units, Mobile Isolation Pods, Mobile Isolation Tents and Vehicles, and Modular Biocontainment and Isolation Units are available for sale, lease, and rent.
