Press Release and Invitation

Hong Kong Doctors Union consists of more than 1,700 registered medical practitioners in Hong Kong with majority in private practice, as well as some in public services. Most of us are practising family medicine, in close contact with the Hong Kong community.

Learning from last year’s SARS threatening experience, the healthcare professionals have conscientiously conducted research on preventive measures of infectious diseases.  Our members have a series of new inventions on protection against SARS and other highly infectious diseases. We are honoured to stage an Exhibition on the inventions in Hospital Authority Annual Convention covering International Forum on SARS & Infection Control this year.  All members of the community are welcome to visit our Exhibition at Booth No. 38, M/F., Old Wing, Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre, Wanchai from 8.5.2004 to 11.5.2004 during the Hospital Authority Annual Convention. 

The name of the invention is " ViroTools" which consists of 12 Tools (Appendix) to achieve the dynamic running concept - Sterile Air Recirculating System ("SARS") concept.

This research project is conducted by Hong Kong Doctors Union, University of Hong Kong and Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education.  

The System Concept is done by the combination of Nano-Technology, Light Energy Sterilisation etc. to achieve the Isolation Purpose but yet a Practical working environment in a relative low cost without doing any architectural or machine modifications (except ViroEn-suite) of the existing system. It takes less than 10 minutes (except ViroEn-suite) to change an unarmed ordinary ward into a high infection isolation ward.

The merits of this system are low costing, high compatibility, high mobility to achieve the concepts of "Mobile Isolation" and "Mobile Sterilisaton". The application and usage of this system will not interfere with the traditional and usual hygiene practice, such as Face Mask and Hand Washing.  Doctors and Nurses are able to perform their usual duties, including Operations, Intubations, Computer handling, writing, etc.  Medical staff members will decide on the proper time to activate the “SARS” when they recognise that the risk of being infected is so high that the usual face mask and handwash cannot provide promising protection.  “SARS” will be maintained for 14 days after activation until there is no more staff or patients being infected.  Then the “SARS” could be deactivated with everything inside the office and ward being totally unaffected and unchanged.

Armed with these new inventions, we hope to better safeguard the health of all citizens and healthcare professionals during future attacks of highly infectious diseases.

新聞稿

香港西醫工會擁有超過1,700位醫生會員,由於大部份為私人執業之家庭醫生,所以我們跟香港社會各階層有非常密切的接觸。

從去年沙士一役的沉重教訓,護理專業人員不斷的鑽研對付傳染病的種種防護方法。我會的會員現有一系列的新發明,用以對抗沙士及其他高度傳染性的疾病。我會的新發明很榮幸地獲邀於醫院管理局週年會議中首次公開展覽,展期由二零零四年五月八日至十一日,歡迎各界人士蒞臨灣仔香港會議展覽中心舊翼閣樓38號攤位參觀及指教。

新發明命名為「威龍工具」,此乃一套全新概念設計的室內空氣淨化循環系統(Sterile Air Recirculating System) "SARS"之專利發明,共包括十二件不同功能的產品(請參閱附註)。

是項研究計劃是香港西醫工會、香港大學及香港專業教育學院合作的成果。

系統設計是結合了納米技術、光學射線和光激氧化技術等等來達到完全消毒淨化的目的。整個系統是用合理成本但嶄新科技來發展,只須不到10分鐘時間(威龍防毒套房除外),便能將一間沒有設防的普通病房或護理院,在不需要改動任何現有裝修,機械設備及醫療器材的情況下(威龍防毒套房除外),迅速而又安全地改建成一間高度防感染的專業病房或醫院。醫護人員下班後可即時安心回家和接觸任何人。

本系統的特點是低成本、高兼容性、高流動性,絕不影響現存的洗手、帶口罩等防感染消毒慨念及措施,而醫生護士卻可以輕鬆自在地進行往常一切的工作和活動,包括手術、插喉、電腦、寫字等。每當工作人員感覺到有相當傳染性的風險而傳統手術口罩等保護衣物又不能提供令人安心的保障時,便可連續14天啟動這個“SARS”系統,來確保個人、診所、病房、醫院、社區、國家以至世界的安全;當沒有新增病例的時候,便可完全拆除這個“SARS”系統,而工作間的環境將回復一切正常。

香港西醫工會希望這套新發明能夠更有效地保衛市民及各專業護理人員的安康,以防範高傳染性疾病的感染。

現誠意邀請閣下參與以下兩項活動:
