Selecting a low differential pressure transducer (DPT) for critical care ventilation is one of
the most important decisions mechanical designers, engineers and architects can make.
These transducers perform precise monitoring and contamination control of isolation room
pressures in critical environments. When properly selected and installed, they help prevent
the spread of communicable diseases like tuberculosis (TB).
Pressures can be either positive for protective isolation, or negative for airborne infectious
isolation control. Examples of positive pressure rooms include hospital patient rooms, hospital
surgical suites, hospital pharmacies, pharmaceutical and semiconductor manufacturing
clean rooms, life science laboratories and animal vivaria. Instances of negative pressure
rooms that form a protective space for the public include hospital rooms with TB, measles,
chickenpox or SARS patients and biological safety laboratories.
