Cross Contamination: A real Concern
Real Spirometer Protection
Pulmonary function laboratory personnel should be concerned about the basic principles of hygiene and the potential risks of cross-contamination when working with diagnostic equipment. Any diagnostic instrument, which comes into contact with the respiratory tract of patients, is inevitably contaminated with microor ganisms present in the patient’s secretions, and therefore has the potential to transmit several types of respiratory infections.
With today’s awareness of disease transmission, breathing through a medical instrument has become a real concern. The possibility of cross-contamination has caused a rethinking of the methods traditionally used to protect both the patient and instrument. That’s why MicroGard™ is an important part of your laboratory protocol, providing the assurance of a safe testing environment every time you use it.посмотреть все статьи
