Rotary Club of Pattaya donates powered air-purifying respirators to Pattaya City Hospital

Pattaya, Thailand-

  On Thursday, September 9th, 2021, members of the Rotary Club of Pattaya, led by 2021-2022 Club President Niels Colov, donated several PAPR devices (Powered air-purifying respirators) to the hospital for use with Covid-19 patients and hospital-related work.


For those not familiar with PAPR, the US CDC (Center for Disease Control) describes them as follows:

“A PAPR is an air-purifying respirator that uses a blower to force air through filter cartridges or canisters and into the breathing zone of the wearer. This process creates an airflow inside either a tight-fitting facepiece or loose-fitting hood or helmet, providing a higher assigned protection factor (APF) than the reusable elastomeric non-powered air-purifying half facepiece (half mask) or N95 FFRs. A PAPR can be used for protection during healthcare procedures in which HCP are exposed to greater risks of aerosolized pathogens causing acute respiratory infections.”

Guests are normally welcome if you wish to hear how you can help out in the local community or inquire about joining the Rotary Club of Pattaya, however, due to Covid-19 events are currently capped at 25 people per Chonburi guidelines.
