Recently the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has published a new and more extensive guidance for the reprocessing of reusable endoscopes.2 The CDC is not alone; more and more national agencies and local institutions introduce strict(er) guidelines to minimise the risk of cross contamination and enhance patient safety.3-5
mobile roulette free,These guidelines call for extensive use of personal protection equipment and detergents, resulting not only in increased reprocessing costs but also in higher environmental burdens. This trend enables us to more confidently say that, from an environmental impact, there is not much difference between a reusable and a single-use bronchoscope – perhaps it may even be less impactful to choose the single-use?
“The use of cleaning materials and personal protective equipment determines that reusable bronchoscopes have comparable or higher material and energy consumption as well as emissions of CO2-equivalents and value of resource consumption to play blackjack against friends® aScope™ 4 Broncho single-use scopes.”6
