The potential for droplet and droplet nuclei aerosolization
of these and other gastrointestinal pathogens during sequential flushes of a contaminated toilet, with the associated surface contamination and airborne transport, has not yet been characterized and would be a worthwhile avenue of future research.
POC testing potentially avoids specimen transport, centrifugation, and aliquoting, reducing the risks of droplet formation or aerosolization
Capillary aerosol production technology is a promising technology with low flow, high efficiency and adaptable particle size in surfactant aerosolization
There is no active aerosolisation engine; instead, the aerosolization
is produced by the patient breathing--a primary design challenge according to Allen.
Weaponizing pathogens, by methods such as aerosolization
, is also now possible with commercial, off-the-shelf supplies, he said.
In addition, Discovery Labs' proprietary capillary aerosolization
technology produces a dense aerosol, with a defined particle size that is capable of potentially delivering aerosolized KL4 surfactant to the lung without the complications currently associated with liquid surfactant administration.
This powder facilitates the aerosolization
of the natural latex proteins which can then be inhaled by the health care worker.
It's produced by aerosolization
of molten mineral compounds, resulting in a fibrous medium accessible to capillary action that is not degraded by microbiological activity.
Wear a face shield if there is a potential for spraying, aerosolization
, or splashing.
SHEA continues to believe that N95 respirators should be used in situations where aerosolization
of influenza virus is more likely--such as during bronchoscopy or endotracheal intubation.
The disease is controlled through prophylactic elimination of the mosquito by home aerosolization
with insecticides in water receptacles used as a larvicide.
These water features had a measurable impact on the numbers of airborne bacteria in the room hosting the device; our results suggest the opposite of conventional opinion regarding the operations of architectural indoor water features, which are often suspect for the enrichment and aerosolization
of some microbes.
