    It will have been and I used to work for the company that invented the operating theatre technology to make such operations (hip and knee replacements especially where post op infections inside the bones are nearly impossible to treat) viable by removing the risks from airborne infection. Lifted from their website.....

    in the late 1950s, Sir John Charnley, the world-renowned orthopaedic surgeon, recognised the necessity of providing an aero-microbiologically clean zone during surgery to avoid wound sepsis from airborne contamination, Charnley’s hip replacements were a success, but many patients were suffering from subsequent infections from the major surgery involved.

    Recognising the high post-operative infection rates, Sir John Charnley was put in touch with Hugh Howorth, whose company specialised in clean air solutions for a number of industrial processes. As a product of their meeting, Howorth designed an airflow system to filter air and direct sources of infection away from the patient, which was first installed at Wrightington Hospital in 1962, with a dramatic reduction in infection rates.

    With what was known as ‘the Charnley-Howorth airflow’ in place, post-operative infections after orthopaedic surgery were considerably reduced and Charnley, along with other pioneering surgeons in the UK, were able to develop the joint replacements now used in millions of patients.

    Since 1962, the Howorth Exflow Ultra Clean Ventilation system has been installed in over 2500 hospitals worldwide.

    Could you imagine what hell that ride would be for @nigelrb . He'd have to disassemble the bike as soon as he got home to clean every bit!

    Wait, he would enjoy that!

    The best defence against rain is a steady right hand.
