- How do I stop cross-contamination during spirometry tests?
Bacterial filters are a practical, cost-effective way to reduce the risk of infection between patients during lung function tests. They trap and remove up to 99.9999% of bacteria and viruses.
Adult disposable mouthpieces are single-use and using these can also help to protect patients from cross-contamination.
- How do I ensure the spirometer mouthpiece works?
During a spirometry test, attach the spirometer mouthpiece to the spirometer. Set the mouthpiece into the patient’s mouth and ensure their lips are tightly sealed around it. No air should be able to escape.
- How can you safely conduct a spirometry test?
Numed’s viral/bacterial spirometry filters can be used with SpiroConnect, giving 99.99% viral/bacterial filtration at a flow rate of 750 litres/min (well in excess of that stipulated by the European Respiratory Society).
The SpiroConnect turbine is easy and fast to sterilise between each patient in a solution of PeraSafe (this only takes 10 minutes).
Anti-viral/bacterial wipes (e.g. Clinell) can be used to quickly disinfect the body of the SpiroConnect spirometer before it is used for the next patient.
