Compelling Reasons for the G310 versus ARACU's (Average Retail Air Cleaner Units)

In a Pro's and Con's format, we detail the clear and compelling reasons to use a Genano 310 versus any ARACU (Average Retail Air Cleaner Unit)


ENTEROVIRUS 68

A respiratory virus called Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) sends hundreds of children to Missouri hospitals and possibly throughout the Midwest.  The unusually high number of hospitalizations reported now could be "just the tip of the iceberg in terms of severe cases," said Mark Pallansch, a virologist and director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Division of Viral Diseases.

MEDICAL Presentation

This shows the many facets of the use of GENANO Products in the MEDICAL ARENA.  There are NO air cleaners that can match the destroying and removing of dangerous particles DOWN TO 1 NANO.  In addition, GENANO Products are MUCH LESS COSTLY than the INEFFICIENT other methods of FILTERS OR UV LIGHTS.


Hospital Acquired Infections - Financial Data

AIRBORNE HOSPITAL ACQUIRED INFECTONS (HAIs) are prohibitively expensive and cost Americans OVER 50,000 LIVES each year.  GENANO Products can prevent this great loss of lives from airborne bugs (three separate International labs have certified the purification power that can accomplish this), and GENANO products can thus prevent thirty-three BILLION dollars of societal losses each year related to these death-dealing HAI's.


INFECTION CONTROL - Presentation

This shows how the use of GENANO Products completely control Airborne Bacteria, Viruses, Mold, and many other perticulates.


Second Case of MERS Reported

The MERS VIRUS had reached the US.  Initially it has been labeled only as a human contact spread.  SSARS was described this way also, but was later found to be AIRBORNE as well as contact. 


MERV 5-12 Medical Financials

Shows the financial justification for GENANO products in non-patient areas.  These parts of a hospital should be airborne-disease-protected as well as the patients' areas.


Superbugs ride air currents around hospital wards

Many think that airborne particles fall to the ground quickly.  NOT TRUE.  Most harmful particles last from 8 HOURS to WEEKS floating around in the air.  This means floating from one air vent to another and from a building a mile away.


The HIDDEN part of the REAL COST of HAIs

This explains one REAL CASE of the TRAGIC HUMAN COST of HAIs, in addition to their enormous Dollar costs.  Read this.


Deadly bacteria defy drugs, alarming doctors

MULTI-DRUG-RESISTANT SUPERBUGS are alarming doctors.  It takes from 5 to 10 years to create and test a new highly-effective drug.  But, by the time the new drug is tested and approved the bugs have mutated to resist it also.  Do not take prescription drugs unless they are really needed. 


Hospital Aquired Infections Paper

This report uses results from the published medical and economic literature to provide a range of estimates for the annual direct hospital cost of treating healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) in the United States.  The overall annual direct medical costs of HAI to U.S. hospitals ranges from $28.4 to $33.8 billion


INFECTION CONTROL Paper

Explains the sizes of particles that are dangerous and how to control them with GENANO products.


Path to Environmental Sustainability

Many hospitals and health facilities are working hard to reduce waste, energy and water, and are reaping the financial, environmental and public relations benefits of doing so.


Pennsylvania HAI Report Appraisal

Some press accounts also declared the report to be a watershed consumer guide allowing hospital-to-hospital comparisons of infection frequency, cost, length of stay and mortality.


Significance of Airborne Transmission of Methicillin

To quantitatively investigate the existence of airborne methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in a hospital environment and to perform phenotyping and genotyping of MRSA isolates to study MRSA epidemiology.  Very informative case study.


ASTHMA FinancialBurdenReport - Florida Full Report

Asthma, especially uncontrolled asthma, creates a considerable economic burden at the national, state, community, and family level, and costs have been increasing significantly over time. This report details the substantial charges incurred to Florida’s healthcare system from emergency department visits and hospitalizations due to asthma.


Can Airborne Allergens be Deadly

According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), asthma is characterized by inflammation of the air passages resulting in thetemporary narrowing of the airways that transport air from the nose and mouth to the lungs. In severe cases, asthma can be deadly.


How Infectious Diseases Work

Infectious diseases are contagious; that is, they can be passed from one person to another. They can be transmitted by skin contact, through body fluids, in contaminated food or drink, or via airborne particles containing the microorganisms, although the pathways and ease of transmission vary by disease.

Rise in Particles in Indoor Air Increases Asthma Symptoms in

Researchers at Johns Hopkins found a direct correlation between increasing concentrations of particulate matter (PM) in indoor air and increased asthma symptoms in preschool children.


Air Pollution & Respiratory Desease

Research by NIEHS scientists: "Long-term exposure to air pollutants increases the risk of respiratory illnesses such as allergies, asthma, COPD, and lung cancer."


Airborne Spread of Clostridium difficile

In this article by Amesh A. Adalja, M.D., it is shown that hospital-acquired Clostridium difficile infections are a growing problem in U.S. hospitals and in many other countries


Cleaner Air May Lengthen Life

A 2-decade decline in air pollution in dozens of U.S. cities has added an average of about 5 months to residents’ lives, according to a new study.  Scientists already had ample evidence of the harmful health effects of air pollution.  Several studies over the past 40 years have linked increased air pollution to shorter lifespans and higher risks for cardiovascular and lung disease.


Legionnaires Bacteria Found in Hospital in Atlanta

Atlanta’s largest hospital has found the bacteria that causes Legionnaire’s disease in patients’ rooms, and officials said Thursday it likely sickened four people who were treated there.  Lab tests showed legionella bacteria in water samples taken from rooms on two floors where the patients came down with the disease

Pneumonia Questions

Pneumonia is infection of the small air sacs of the lungs (alveoli) and surrounding tissues.  The infection causes inflammation and deterioration of lung function. The lungs become unable to easily transfer oxygen to the blood, increasing the work of breathing.  Pneumonia occurs in people of all ages.


SARS

Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) is thought to be spread through airborne droplets generated from coughing, sneezing or talking.


Asthma - CDC INFO

The initial onset of asthma cannot yet be prevented and asthma cannot be cured.  However, asthma can be controlled, and people who have asthma still can lead quality, productive lives.


Asthma Statistics

Every house with plants, pets or people is automatically polluted. According to the EPA, the air in most homes is at least two to four times more polluted than outside air.


Mold Information

Molds are a type of fungi and are neither plant nor animal. There are over 100,000 types of mold with at least 1,000 types found in North America and live in colonies growing on food, fabric, bathroom walls, construction materials, and soil. Mold proliferates through the release of spores into the air we breathe and are not visible to the naked eye.


Legionella Standard

According to Building Operating Management magazine, expert Victor Yu, MD, Professor of Medicine, University of Pittsburgh; Chief, Infectious Disease Section, VA Medical Center, Pittsburgh, PA, USA disclosed that Up to 70% of all buildings greater than three stories in the US may be contaminated with Legionella.”


MOLD LAB IN UNIVERSITY

A Science LAB was having problems with imported experimental plants.  MOLD was hindering their research and they had tried every known method to get rid of the MOLD without hearting the plants.  A GENANO 310 was installed in the lab.  Within 24 hours all the mold was gone.  Funds were not available to purchase the unit so it was removed after 2 weeks.  Within 1 day after removal of the Genano 310 the mold fully returned.
