ASP Launches GLOSAIR™ Healthcare Environmental Decontamination at the 2011 APIC Conference to Protect Against the Risk of Deadly Infections in Healthcare Facilities
Date:6/27/2011

Control and Epidemiology (APIC) 2011 Conference. The symposium, Progress Toward Improved Healthcare Environmental Decontamination, will educate healthcare professionals on environmental decontamination and GLOSAIR™ technology, which disinfects by creating a fog of 5 percent hydrogen peroxide that is uniformly dispersed to disinfect all hard nonporous surfaces, including difficult-to-reach areas. Attendees at APIC are encouraged to join the APIC Symposium in Ballroom Key 8, 11, 12 of the Baltimore Hilton Hotel at 6:00AM ET or visit the ASP APIC booth #856.

Research Shows Environment Can Contribute to Spread of Infection

According to the latest scientific research, environmental contamination plays an important role in the transmission of many superbugs that cause infections(4). Research indicates some microorganisms, such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pseudomonas) and E. coli, are tougher to eliminate than others and can continue to persist on environmental surfaces after standard cleaning approaches(5,6,7).

Healthcare facilities can reduce the number of these pathogens in the hospital environment by introducing enhanced, deep cleaning and disinfection protocols to current practices(8). Studies show hydrogen peroxide vapor decontamination devices, such as GLOSAIR™ Systems, are effective at reducing surface contamination by these pathogens and may be associated with a reduction in infection transmission(9).

"With HAIs increasing at a significant rate, hospitals need an innovative solution to help reduce the patient and financial impact associated with these life-threatening infections," said Bernard Zovighian, Worldwide President of ASP. "ASP specifically developed GLOSAIR™ for the healthcare environment to deliver thorough environmental disinfection in a way that is safe for patients, healthcare staff and the medical equipment they both
