Tru-D in the OR

Each year, the CDC estimates that more than 150,000 surgical site infections (SSIs) occur with inpatient surgeries; these infections make up 37% of all hospital-acquired infections.

While handwashing and manual cleaning play a large role in preventing the transmission of infections, UV technology has been proven to help reduce HAIs as well.

In a recent study published in the American Journal of Infection Control, Tru-D was proven to reduce bioburden on anesthesia workstations. In the study, UVC disinfection greatly influenced bioburden reduction regardless of room size and exposure type. All trials, compared with the controls, exhibited a bioburden reduction of more than 99 percent. The research team went on to suggest that Tru-D’s technology is an important supplement to the manual cleaning process.
