9:15 a.m. – 10:15 a.m.

Operating Room Relative Humidity Study, Sponsored by ASHRAE
This session will discuss a comparison of microbial and particulate contamination control for different levels of room relative humidity at constant temperature during mock operating room conditions. The three relative humidity levels tested were 20%, 35%, and 50%. Each relative humidity level tested measured microbial and particulate contaminants in the sterile field and at the back instrument table.

Presenters: Dr. Jennifer Wagner, Ph.D., CIC, OnSite-LLC;
                 Damon G. Greeley, PE, CEM, HFDP, CBCP, EDAC, CHFM, OnSite-LLC

3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Operating Room Supply Airflow Study, Sponsored by ASHRAE
This session will discuss a comparison of microbial and particulate contamination control for different types of operating room supply air systems during mock operating room conditions. The three systems tested were Single Large Diffuser (SLD), Multi Diffuser Array (MDA), and 4-way Throw. Each system tested measured microbial and particulate contaminants in the sterile field and at the back instrument table.

Presenters: Dr. Jennifer Wagner, Ph.D., CIC, OnSite-LLC;
                 Damon G. Greeley, PE, CEM, HFDP, CBCP, EDAC, CHFM, OnSite-LLC

4:15 p.m. – 5:15 p.m.

Operating Room Back Table Contamination Study, Sponsored by ASHRAE
This session will discuss a comparison of microbial and particulate contamination control for covering and no-covering of the back instrument table prior to use during mock operating room conditions. Each cover/no-cover condition tested measured microbial and particulate contaminants in the sterile field and at the back instrument table.

Presenters: Dr. Jennifer Wagner, Ph.D., CIC, OnSite-LLC;
                 Damon G. Greeley, PE, CEM, HFDP, CBCP, EDAC, CHFM, OnSite-LLC
