INTERVIEW WITH LEAD CANCER SURGEON, DR RAJYASHREE N. KUTTY
Any patient diagnosed and undergoing cancer treatment has low immunity and is susceptible to infection caused by bacteria, viruses or fungi. As doctors, we recommend avoiding crowded places and people in general, but patients also need full support from their family and friends, which implies a great deal of human interaction. The VIRUSKILLER™ technology can help them by neutralising airborne viruses and bacteria from the air, before they are inhaled. Medical facilities and hospitals are working very hard to prevent nosocomial infections but airborne viruses are always a challenge. Basic education and awareness programs can help but still the airborne diseases can not be tackled completely. Running an air steriliser like the ones from Radic8-INBair Group can certainly help to a large extent to keep the air safe and significantly reduce the risk of infection. I have myself installed the technology in my clinic and after using it for a while, I can say that there’s certainly a good change. I notice it automatically turning to full-fan when people with upper respiratory tract infections enter the room. I have also been told by my colleague, who has it in his home that his children have reduced incidence of upper respiratory tract infections and that they sleep better due to improved air quality which helps with nose congestion.
It is worth noting that this is also important for people with other conditions that weaken the immune system, such as asthma, chronic obstructive artery diseases, diabetes, etc, to make sure they limit their exposure to viruses and bacteria as much as they can. For this reason, VIRUSKILLER™ technology can aid tremendously.
