On the Front Lines of the Fight Against Ebola, Setra Systems’ Room Pressure Monitors are Installed on all the Isolation Rooms at Emory Hospital in Atlanta
March 2015, MARIETTA, GA - Setra’s Room Pressure Monitor, SRPM, was highlighted on the ‘Saving Dr. Brantly’ segment on NBC a few weeks ago, as it was installed on all of the isolation rooms at Emory Hospital in Atlanta.
On Wednesday October 22, Peter Howe from New England’s News Station (NECN) came to Setra to interview David Carr, General Manager of Setra, to learn more about how Setra’s line of Room Pressure Monitors can help prepare hospitals around the world for an epidemic, such as Ebola.

Being prepared for an epidemic shouldn’t be taken lightly. Hospitals need to be sure they have the proper monitoring systems in place to protect both the patient and the rest of the hospital. Setra’s Room Pressure Monitors, specifically the SRPM, is a perfect example; this product monitors the differential pressure in isolation rooms and alarms locally & remote personnel if anything has been breached. This is the most critical piece of isolation room equipment because if it is not working correctly, contaminated air could be unknowingly spread throughout the facility.
In a hospital, laboratory or animal research facility, the integrity of the ventilation control system is at the heart of a contaminant free environment. Whether a room is to be maintained at a negative pressure to prevent contaminants from escaping into adjacent areas or positive pressure to protect patients with compromised immune systems, the proper pressurization of the room is essential. To assure proper pressurization is maintained in these critical environments, a room pressure monitor is employed to measure and alert staff and personnel of any change in pressure—no matter how small. A fail-safe solution to monitoring these very low pressure changes is Setra’s Model SRCM Room Pressure Monitor, which utilizes highly accurate capacitance sensing technology to measure and display true low pressure differential.
