  • Bacteria
  • Although the reasons for this are unclear, it is hypothesized that a physical effect may be responsible: the production of air ions may negatively charge items of plastic medical equipment so that they repel, rather than attract, airborne bacteria. (springer.com)
  • 1 ] are unclear, it is hypothesized that the air ions may have negatively charged items of plastic medical equipment in the ward, such as patient ventilator tubes, so that they repelled, rather than attracted, airborne bacteria. (springer.com)
  • Contamination may result from healthcare workers' hands or by direct patient shedding of bacteria which are able to survive up to several months on dry surfaces. (biomedcentral.com)
  • A number of equipment items and commonly used objects in ICU carry bacteria which, in most cases, show the same antibiotic susceptibility profiles of those isolated from patients. (biomedcentral.com)
  • risks associated
  • In this hour-long, interactive webcast, held in conjunction with National Food Safety Month, experts will share best practices and their experiences in helping foodservice operators reduce the potential risks associated with cross contamination. (fesmag.com)
  • In this interview, Lewis reveals shocking information about the tests routinely used to check for colon cancer, along with recommendations on how to avoid the contamination risks associated with them. (mercola.com)
  • risk
  • Overall, there was no difference in the risk of contamination with respect to the time of day (OR 1.79, 95% CI 0.68 to 4.69). (bmj.com)
  • When objects were compared, the colposcope had the highest risk of contamination (OR 3.02, 95% CI 0.86 to 10.57). (bmj.com)
  • As a result of that investigation, the FDA immediately changed its sterilization guidelines for dental equipment, and the CDC suggested Dr. Lewis investigate the contamination risk of flexible endoscopes, which was suspected to be an even bigger problem. (mercola.com)
  • personnel
  • MCLPs were further assigned to carcasses, personnel, and equipment at each stage by summing up the CL scores. (dtu.dk)
  • The CL score attributed to aerobic plate count contamination was 2 or 3 for carcasses but 0 for personnel and equipment in almost all slaughterhouses. (dtu.dk)
  • Although CLs attributed to contamination of carcasses, personnel, and equipment ranged from 0 to 3, the maximum MCLP score of 9 was only attained in carcasses from two slaughterhouses at dehiding and from one slaughterhouse at dispatch. (dtu.dk)
  • surface
  • Sizes and locates surface contamination and defects down to 0.10 micro-meters (PSL reference) in a fully automated 100mm - 200mm, cassette to cassette operation. (bidservice.com)
  • A study was undertaken in a mechanically ventilated room under ambient conditions to accurately measure changes in surface potential exhibited by items of plastic medical equipment in the presence of negative air ions. (springer.com)
  • time
  • There's still time to make sure your voice is heard in this industry-leading evaluation of foodservice equipment and supplies manufacturers. (fesmag.com)
  • particles
  • By negatively charging both particles in the air and items of plastic equipment, the ionizers minimize electrostatic deposition on these items. (springer.com)
  • highest
  • According to the Medicines & Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency in the United Kingdom Product contamination is the second to third highest reason for recalls in the UK in recent years. (gmp-navigator.com)
