  9. 9. STERILIZATION: The process by which an article is made free of all living organisms either in vegetative or in spore state. DISINFECTION: The destruction or removal of all pathogenic organism / organisms capable of giving rise to infection.
  10. 10. ANTISEPTIC : A chemical that is applied to living tissue, such as mucous membrane or skin to reduce the number of organisms present, through inhibition of their activity or destruction. DISINFTECTANTS : A chemical used on non-vital objects to kill surface vegetative pathogenic organisms but not necessarily spore forms/ viruses.
  11. 11. • Spaulding’s classification provides a simplified outline of the recommended processing methods for items of patient care equipment, based on the intended use of the item. • Depending on the intended use of an item, medical and surgical equipment may be required to undergo the following processes between uses on different patients: 1. cleaning, followed by sterilization 2. cleaning, followed by high, or intermediate level disinfection 3. cleaning alone
  12. 12. Disinfection & sterilization : infection control guidelines
  13. 13. • All the materials used as a part of sterile field for an operation, must be sterile. • Basic items – linen, instrument set, basin • Instrument sterilization :  1 night before  just before operation • Once the instrument is removed from sterile wrapper : use / discard
  14. 14. 1. Linen colour : Dyed green (reduces glare from light & fatigue and eye strain). 2. Use sterile materials only & maintain the sterility throughout the procedure. 3. Sterile area are setup just prior to use. 4. If in doubt : consider the material as unsterile. 5. Only the top surface of draped table is considered sterile.
  15. 15. 6. Neither the circulator nor the scrub should intrude up on the other’s area at any time. • sterile person should touch the sterile materials & unsterile person should touch the unsterile materials. • circulator (unsterile person) supplies for the sterile team members. 7. The scrub should be considered as sterile person. • gown • glove • drapes the table 1st nearest to them • hand positioning
  16. 16. 8. Sterile team members should keep their contact even with sterile area to a minimum. 9. Sterile team members should be within the sterile area & scrub nurse should allow a wide margin of safety when passing through unsterile area. Rules : • Sterile team members should be stand back at a safe distance from operating table , while draping. • Pass back to back. • Unsterile person/ area should be passed by back of sterile person. • Face a sterile person/area when passing. • Stay near the sterile table. • Used items / soiled sponges are placed into the basin. outside of basin : sterilized; inside of basin : contaminated

Circulator : • Unsterile team member • Should provide wide margin of safety while passing • Away from sterile area • Face the sterile area while Passing, but should not touch • Should not go within the sterile circle • Notify the scrub person while passing behind him • Stands at a safe distance while adjusting the light • Grasp the table legs well below the table top to move the sterile table
  18. 18. 10. Covered sterile materials • Edge of cover that encloses the sterile content : sterile. • Circulator should lift the cap of solution containing bottles & the caps are not replaced. 11. Sterile materials / area should be protected form moisture : contaminated - sterile packages should be laid down in dry area. - linen package remove from autoclave : wait to become cool & dry - allow the paint to become dry before draping - during procedure, any wet area should be covered with dry drape
  19. 19. 12. Micro-organisms can not be removed completely, so they should be keep as minimum as possible - skin can not be sterilized (staphylococcus) - skin shaving - head cap & mask - hands & arms should be properly scrubbed - dry the hands with sterile towel - as much of the operative area is cleansed as feasible - some area can not be rubbed vigorously - a sponge is used once only - sterile area should be separated from other by draping - after incision of skin, the blade / knife should be isolated from other items
  20. 20. 13. Respiratory tract of patient is another source of infection. 14. Team members should not talk except when essential. 15. Bed clothes : should be removed or replaced prior to entry into OT, never the less the patient should be covered with a coversheet at all times. 16. The doors from corridors into operating room should keep close. 17. Dressing removed from a wound should be placed at once in a bag & should be discarded. 18. Drain should not be kept open.
  21. 21. Good Hand Washing Practices Save many Lives 1. Alcohol with Chlorhexidine. 2.Alchool without Chlorhexidine. 3. Chlorhexidine 2 % 4. Chlorhexidine 4 % 5. Povidone with Iodine 7.5 % - 10% 6. Triclosan 1 % 7. Phenolics 8. quarternary ammonium compound 9. 3 % hexachlorophane Areas of the harboring dirt and microorganisms
  22. 22. • The scrub area sink should be wide enough to facilitate easy scrubbing without touching anywhere. • It should have depth of about 3 feet which prevents Incorrect splashing of rebound water onto the clean hands. • The scrub sinks are fitted with doctors’ taps, rather than ordinary taps, to facilitate its operation with the help of arms to prevent contamination of scrubbed hands during closing the tap. • The peddle operated taps are ideal in scrub areas as it permits hand free operations. The cleaned hands are mopped with sterile towel and disinfected with antiseptic solution. Correct Design of the washing sink
  23. 23. Linen gown made up of cotton having a thread count of 240 sq inch for the reusable stuff . Paper gown Plastic gown
  24. 24. • The floors and walls should be absolutely smooth and easily cleanable and should have minimum and neatly made or no joints. • Flooring should be non porous, scratch proof, anti skid and antistatic (epoxy resin flooring) . • The walls should also be covered with smooth material like granite with minimum joints. • The ceilings should be painted with oil paints which give smooth finish. • All the electrical fittings and water pipe lines in the OR must be concealed. • The OR complex should have only one entry and all the windows should be air tight in restricted and semi-restricted area.
  25. 25. • Avoid contamination of wound. • Although Unpreventable. • Chances of cross infection. • Contamination of surgical wound is mostly from – skin / mucous membrane being incised. • Other sources : nose, throat, hand, skin of operating team members. • Air contamination : omnipresent problem. • All logical precaution & preparations should be done.
  26. 26. Stress must be laid on 1. Temperature 2. Humidity 3. Ventilation Temperature : 24-270 C Relative Humidity : 450 – 600 C for adult 550 – 650 C for infants

  34. 34. Need for fumigation Surveillance studies of different zones in operation theatre showed that the isolates were • Staphylococcus aureus (16%) • Coagulase negative staphylococcus aureus (26.7%) • Acinobacter species (2.03%) • Klebsiella (0.3%) • E.coli, Pseudomonas species, Proteus species were also found in majority
  35. 35. Owens C.D., Stoessel K. Surgical site infections: Epidemiology, microbiology and prevention. Journal of Hospital Infection . 2008.70;S2:3–10
  36. 36. • Daily cleaning should be carried out after the operating sessions are over. • All the surfaces should be cleaned with detergent and water and may be wiped over with a phenol if any spills with blood / body fluid are present. • All the walls must be wiped down to hand height everyday. • The floors should be scrubbed with warm water and detergent and dried. No disinfectant is necessary. • The O.T. table and other non clinical equipments must be wiped to remove all visible dirt and left to dry. • Weakly cleaning of all the areas inside the operating theatre complex should be done thoroughly with warm water and detergent and dried. • The storage shelves must be emptied and wiped over, allowed to dry and restacked.
  37. 37. Procedure for fumigation: • The windows should be sealed and formaldehyde should be generated either by boiling a solution of formalin 40% or by adding it to potassium permanganate, in a metal vessel on the floor, since heat is also generated. The door is than closed and sealed. • For a 10 x 10 x 10 ft room - 150 gm potassium permanganate and 280 ml of formalin are used
  38. 38. Duration: • In case of any construction in O.T. • In case of infected cases • For routine clean cases 48 hrs 24hr 12 hrs. • Alternatively 250 ml of formalin and 3000 ml of tap water are put into a machine (auto mist) and time is set for 2 hrs. The mist is circulated for 2hrs inside the closed room. • Room is kept sealed for another 2 hrs for action of vapor. Ventilate for suitable time for vapor to dissipate. Room then can be used. • Three swabs are taken from walls, all equipments, floor or O.T. table at intervals. • 1st swab - 48 hrs after fumigation • 2nd swab- 24 hrs after 1st swab • 3rd swab - 12 hrs after 2nd swab
  39. 39. • All three consecutive swabs should come negative. • In some centers, Bacillocid is being used for fumigation. It is combination of chemically bound formaldehyde and glutaraldehyde. • Ideally all O.T. rooms should be fumigated once a week
  40. 40. Fumigation to be neutralized • Neutralize Residual formalin gas with Ammonia by exposing 250 ml of Ammonia per liter of Formaldehyde used. • Place the ammonia solution in the centre of the room and leave it for 3 hours to neutralize the formalin vapour
  41. 41. An example is set as.. • Operation Theatre Volume = L×B×H = 20 × 15 × 10 = 3000 cubic feet • Formaldehyde required for fumigation = 500 ml for 1000 cubic feet = So 1500 ml of formaldehyde required • Ammonia required for neutralization = 150ml of 10% ammonia for 500 ml of formaldehyde = So 450 ml of 10% ammonia require
  42. 42. • NPO for 6 hrs : food • NPO for 3 hrs : clear fluid Avoid excessive starvation • Shaving • Lipstick, nail varnish & other cosmetics should be removed • Patient should not be shifted in operating room with full bladder
  43. 43. • Hospitalization 2 – 3 days prior to surgery • A good bath to clean all the dirt from the body • Outside clothing should be discarded and the patient should be provided clean hospital clothing Preparation of Part: • The part to be operated should be washed thoroughly with soap and water. • The hair should be removed by shaving at least 12 hours prior to the surgery . • The clean and shaved part is vigorously scrubbed with antiseptic solution like savlon, chlorhexidine or povidon iodine and mopped with sterile gauge. • The cleaned part is painted with solution like mercury chrome or 2% picric acid, covered with sterile pad and sealed with adhesive taps.
  44. 44. • The oral cavity should be thoroughly inspected for any septic foci; calculus, tarter, infected carious teeth, infected periodontal pockets etc. and they should be treated/ removed. • Antiseptic mouth washes should be prescribed (Chlorhexidine, Povidon iodine etc.) for periodic mouth rinsing to reduce the count of microorganism. • Loose teeth should be extracted as they may come in the way of intubations of patient and may get knocked out and aspirated during the intubation.
  45. 45. SURGICAL TEAM • Chief surgeon, who directs the surgery • One or more assistant surgeons, who help the chief surgeon • Anesthesiologist, who controls the supply of anesthetic and monitors the person closely • Scrub nurse, who passes instruments to the surgeon • Circulating nurse, who provides extra equipment to the operating team
  46. 46. Assisting the surgeon – Floor nurse • Receive the patient from the ward, from the staff nurse.

  51. 51. PURPOSE: • To reduce the resident and transient microbial counts at the surgical site immediately prior to making the surgical incision. • To minimize rebound microbial growth during the intraoperative and postoperative period. • To reduce the risk of post surgical site infection. • To prevent injury to the patient during surgical skin preparation.
  52. 52. Hair removal • 1 night before or just prior to skin preparation • Close shave is not necessary • Stroke against the direction that the hair is growing using short strokes. Short hair stubble will still be evident after clipping.
  53. 53. Management of hair • Hair removal may or may not occur; • Long hair may be parted along the incision line and hair secured away from the incision with elastic bands; or short hair may have a thin strip of hair clipped along the incision line.
  54. 54. 1. 4% Chlorhexidine Gluconate (Betasept, Hibiclens, Dyna-Hex4) 2. Hexachlorophene 3% (Phisohex) 3. Iodine Scrub/Soap 7.5% (Wet skin with water, apply enough iodine scrub to create lather and scrub for 5 minutes. Blot or rinse off using sterile towel or gauze). 4. Iodine Paint 10% (Paint area to be prepped with solution and allow to dry prior to starting procedure). 5. Duraprep/Chloroprep 6.

  55. 55. 5 min. 1. Extraoral scrub procedure (circumoral preparation should be done prior to intraoral procedure) . 2. Scrub should begin in the center of the area to be prepared & then move outwards concentrically is possibly (minimizes the contamination from unscrubbed area). 3. Once central part is prepared, then it should not be touched again with same sponge. 4. Start in middle & extend towards periphery. Best Practice Guidelines, Surgical Skin Preparation
  56. 56. Purpose I. II. • • • Isolate the surgical area from other parts of body that have not been prepared for surgery. Isolate from nonsterile operating room equipments & personnel. A double layer drape is effective. 2,3,4, drapes can be placed over the endotracheal tube. For isolation of mouth : clear plastic drape with an adhesive side (vidrape)
  57. 57. Patient’s head is placed on sterile sheets covered by 2 towels. Towels are used to drape patient’s head. Additional towels may then be added to isolate surgical area.
  58. 58. Clear drape is placed with adhesive surface contacting skin just below the mouth, which effectively isolates it from surgical site. Moth or nasal area may be entered by pulling drape toward & then reisolated by returning drape to its original position.
  59. 59. 2 towels with edges folded to outside are then joined together with towel clips & then unfolded to create opening through which operate can enter into oral cavity.
  60. 60. • Confirm the completion of all the surgical plan. • Report the anesthetist regarding completion of procedure. • Check for satisfactory wound closure & cessation of hemorrhage. • - Mouth should be checked for – Clot Debris Swabs Extracted teeth • Make a count of them.
  61. 61. • Throat pack removal. • Write the operative notes. • Shift the patient on a trolley equipped with oxygen cylinder & mask, assisted by 2 persons (one should be trained nurse).
  62. 62. • Keep the patient in recovery room & in recovery position. (under observation of anesthetist.) • Emergency situations can be managed by surgeon/anesthetist/both.
  63. 63. • “Precautions to protect against exposure must be taken when there is any potential for exposure to bodily fluids. It is assumed that all bodily fluids have the potential to transmit disease” • The Universal Precaution Rule: Treat all human blood, bodily fluids and other potentially infectious materials as if they are infectious.
  64. 64. Transmission of blood-borne viruses Transmission of HBV is approximately 100 times more efficient than transmission of HIV and approximately 10 times more efficient than HCV.
  65. 65. • In the case of HCV, patient-to-patient transmission has been associated with endoscopic procedures. • The risk of transmission of HIV is estimated to be approximately 0.3% after a percutaneous needlestick injury with HIV-infected blood and 0.09% after a mucous membrane exposure. • Transmission of HBV in the health care setting can be prevented through health care worker, patient and community hepatitis B vaccination programs.
  66. 66. • Depending on the nature of the exposure, PEP is available to health care workers to prevent infection with HIV and HBV. • The sooner PEP is administered, the more likely it is to be effective in preventing infection. • Clinicians should always refer to the most recent protocols and seek appropriate advice about administration of PEP because the area is constantly changing. • Blood should be taken prior to or shortly after administration of PEP to check for prior exposure or infection.
  67. 67. HIV PEP should be started between one and two hours after an exposure. Medication 2-drug regimen 3-drug regimen Zidovudine (AZT) 300 mg twice a day 300 mg twice a day Stavudine (d4T) 30 mg twice a day 30 mg twice a day Lamivudine (3TC) 150 mg twice a day 150 mg twice a day Protease Inhibitors 1st choice Lopinavir/ritonavir (LPV/r) 400/100 mg twice a day or 800/200 mg once daily with meals 2nd choice Nelfinavir (NLF) 1250 mg twice a day or 750 mg three times a day with empty stomach 3rd choice Indinavir () 800 mg every 8 hours and drink 8–10 glasses (1.5 litres) of water daily
  68. 68. • If the exposed person is not immune to HBV, or is unaware of their immune status, then HBIG should be given within 48–72 hours of exposure. For example • If the exposed person is not immune to HBV, or is of unknown immune status, HBIG should be administered within 72 hours of exposure • If the exposed person is a non-responder to the HBV vaccine, HBIG should be given within 72 hours • There is currently no PEP available to prevent HCV infection. In 1994, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) reviewed available data regarding the prevention of HCV infection with IG and concluded that using IG as PEP for hepatitis C was not supported.
