RISC by MQDC launches negative pressure emergency rooms

to support hospitals during the pandemic

Prof. Dr. Singh Intrachooto, Chief Advisor to Research & Innovation for Sustainability Centre (RISC) by MQDC, has announced that RISC has collaborated with the international systems installer EEC Engineering Network to develop and launch “Negative Pressure ER 100% Fresh Air”, a new pilot project to provide high-quality support facilities for the treatment of COVID -19 patients at BMA General (Klang) Hospital.

Each of the units is 2.5m by 6m and 2.75m tall, enough space to accommodate emergency operations requiring a respirator for one patient. The design separates space and people, with special airtight antechambers for entering and leaving the treatment area that keep air pressure stable and prevents leakages. Furthermore, the air-conditioning system is 100% fresh air and controls temperature, humidity and even hygiene through a HEPA filter and unidirectional airflow, safeguarding staff during treatment.

The portable system can even be assembled outdoors at field hospitals and areas near emergency rooms (ER) to effectively treat patients. The system uses single-direction, air quality adjustment to stop infection spreading, thereby expanding the space for treating patients and addressing the lack of facilities for critical patients to undergo operations safely. The design also incorporates psychological design principles such as blue light that helps patients relax three times faster than white light, reducing stress for patients, relatives and passers-by.

RISC by MQDC launches negative pressure emergency rooms

The room is designed to be energy efficient and hygienic, reducing the risk of infection from microbes on surfaces.

Interior details:

  • ISO WALL surfaces are easily cleaned and resist mould.
  • Seal doors prevent air leakage for safety and the width of the doorway accommodates wheelchairs and transport equipment.
  • The room can hold one patient bed and emergency procedures requiring respirators (for ‘Red’ patients).
  • Rubber floor tiles meet cleanroom standards.
  • Lighting has a suitable location and 4000K colour temperature for operations.
  • White surfaces enhance the room’s brightness to facilitate treatment and hygiene.

Exterior details:

  • ISO WALL, A 2-inch layer of polyurethane insulation keeps out heat and prevents air leakage to reduce electricity demand.
  • The room can withstand sun and rain.
  • The room can be fully disassembled for relocation.
  • Compact design facilitates use anywhere.
  • Exterior walls change colour to suit and illuminate their surroundings.
RISC by MQDC launches negative pressure emergency rooms

Prof. Dr. Singh, said: “RISC by MQDC and its network of partners is committed to enhancing the nation’s quality of life and wellbeing to contribute to society and help address the widespread COVID-19 outbreak. Medical teams are facing a lack of safe working space and a shortage of ER facilities for critically ill patients who need operations. ‘Negative Pressure ER’ can accommodate patients who need urgent treatment. Supporting emergency procedures for ‘Red’ patients on ventilators is crucial, relieving the shortage of ER rooms and providing flexibility for frontline personnel by helping support and create safe confined spaces.”
