Ambulance cleanliness is a large factor in the occurrence of HCAI’s in the United States. Thus, a suitable device, if equipped onboard ambulances, could allow EMS personnel to clean any contamination quickly and without having to finish the transport. The scope of this project was to design a suitable medical vacuum cleaner that effectively cleans a during-transport body fluid spill. Designs were analyzed via computer simulations, and results of these designs imply that such a vacuum cleaner would provide excellent cleaning power with very little effort from paramedics. Furthermore, the designed cleaner would have a profound impact on the cleanliness of any ambulances which implement it, and this impact has worldwide implications about the future of EMS cleanliness.
