The main use of ultraviolet light radiation in hospitals is for the disinfection of the air. A study was made of the disinfecting efficiency of indirect ultraviolet radiation (lifts, cleaning of bedding), direct irradiation of rooms overnight or after use, ultraviolet curtains (irradiation of the whole width of passages, doorways and entrances) and(More)
On October 23, 2011, a M7.2 earthquake caused damage in a widespread area in the Van province located in eastern Turkey. This strong earthquake was followed by a M5.7 earthquake on November 9, 2011. This sequence of damaging earthquakes led to 644 fatalities. The management during and after these earthquake disaster imposed many critical challenges. In this(More)
Disinfection of fibre endoscopes was examined in 5 endoscopy departments during endoscopy sessions. On the endoscopes, especially in the instrument channels, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Proteus species could be regularly found, in some cases also Enterobacter cloacae and Candida albicans. With the results of disinfection experiments, proposals are made to(More)
Micro-organisms causing periotonitis during peritoneal dialysis or CAPD can reach the peritoneal cavity either along the Tenckhoff-catheter or via contaminated dialysis fluid. Laboratory experiments with UV irradiation of artifically contaminated CAPD fluid were made to demonstrate whether decontamination could be achieved during the flow through a(More)
The instruments and surroundings of five ultrasound diagnostic departments were tested for bacteria, antimicrobic characteristics, and prevalence of Hbs Ag in commercial contact medium (cellulose) and were also analysed after contamination in vitro. Facultative pathogenic bacteria as well as normal skin bacteria were found on the ultrasound equipment. It(More)
Genetic structure of non-inbred Cubavet and CENIC mice colonies was investigated for three loci of hair colouring (A, B, D), for potential fertility and embryo mortality. Mice colonies are polymorphis in three hair colour determining loci. Alleles rates are: a -- 0.17--0.36; b -- 0.21--0.26; d -- 0.07--0.17. Both colonies reliably differ in colour genotype(More)
For prevention of bacteriemia caused by contaminated dialysis fluid it is necessary to protect the dialysator by decontamination of the fluid immediately before entering the dialysator. Using filters with a pore size of 0.2 micrometer or 0.45 micrometer sterile samples of dialysis fluid could be obtained, but flow rate and pressure of the fluid could not be(More)
