CMU opens North’s first negative pressure room



CHIANG MAI (NNT) – The Faculty of Medicine of Chiang Mai University (CMU) has unveiled the North’s first ever negative pressure room for airborne infection isolation.

Working with the CMU’s Faculty of Engineering and alumni, the Faculty of Medicine opened the facility as part of the efforts against the spread of the coronavirus disease COVID-19. The room allows for rapid and systematic isolation of the virus, and is in addition to an emergency facility at Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital. It took 21 days to build, using a budget of 5.5 million baht donated via the Suan Dok Hospital Foundation CMU Faculty of Engineering Alumni Fund.

The room is able to treat and disinfect its own air supply while remaining completely isolated from other spaces. It has four internal facilities for treatment of COVID-19 patients, protecting other users of the facility from any airborne contagions. It also protects patients from other respiratory ailments such as tuberculosis and flu.
