Since the onset of the global SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, reducing the transmission of healthcare-associated infections has become even more important. Cleaning and disinfecting are critical to reducing the risk of transmission, but is there another step that hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, and skilled nursing facilities can take?
There have been many studies being published recently praising the powers of hydrogen peroxide vapor (HPV) as a solution to eliminate SARS-CoV-2, norovirus, multi-drug resistant organisms (MDROs), and other pathogens within healthcare facilities. The disinfection of hospital surfaces is a complex operation aimed at reducing the pathogenic microorganism load.
Hydrogen peroxide is a versatile disinfectant since it can be used in several environmental matrices: air, water, wastewater, surfaces, soil, etc. It may be used in combination with other agents increasing the disinfection times. Hydrogen peroxide is more oxidizing than chlorine and chlorine dioxide. The disinfection mechanism is based on the release of oxygen free radicals, which cause genomic damage in bacterial cells.
With the prices of professional cleaning and sanitizing reaching all time highs, we think that it’s the perfect time for healthcare facilities to start considering investing in H2O2 sanitization equipment and handle this crucial protocol in house.
One such Hydrogen Peroxide vaporizer is the “ViTralizer”, recently popular for its proven track record of eliminating the Coronavirus from all types of surfaces in any type of setting. Our goal is to improve all hospital infection control practices, including cleaning and disinfection, as well as behavioral and environmental practices, to the point where preventing the spread of these multiple-drug-resistant organisms also minimizes the chances of patients becoming infected and improves their chances of recovery.
The ViTralizer has been designed to ensure maximum safety, suitable for its commercial or household applications. The unit is equipped with user-friendly components making its operation really simple. Simply fill the reservoir (about 1 qt), set the room size, push start and leave the room. The “ViTralizer” is capable of sanitizing over 17,000 cubic feet (2,125 Square Feet @ 8 ft ceilings) in one run.
In less than an hour, people can safely return to the now sanitized area. If you need more space covered, just move the machine to a different location and run it again.
It’s that easy.
