Ontario health care and technology breakthrough
Ontario technology developed to capture routinely vented operating room anesthetics, which are potent greenhouse gases
Dusanka Filipovic, founder of Blue-Zone, is available to respond to questions about the new Deltasorb® technology and its successful trials in Ontario hospitals
Ms. Filipovic can speak on the following points:
• Blue-Zone's patented Deltasorb® system for capturing anesthetic gases from hospital operating rooms;
• How anesthetics, potent greenhouse gases, are currently being vented into the public environment;
• How the amount of anesthetic gas exhausted into the public sphere from Ontario operating rooms has the equivalent environmental impact produced by 30,000 automobiles;
• How the Deltasorb® technology has the potential to provide a new source of generic anesthetic drug product for the medical community;
• The environmental and atmospheric dangers of anesthetics, and why they need to be contained;
• How Deltasorb® is being used successfully in leading Ontario hospitals.
