Abstract [en]

In view of the ongoing discussions concerning the need for guidelines and contamination control in operating rooms, dispersion of airborne contaminants through door openings is discussed in this paper. Some mathematical models are described. The increase of the concentration of viable particles is predicted. The results show the importance of air cleanliness outside the operating room door in connecting areas/rooms when operations susceptible to infections are performed.
