ABSTRACT

Options for the Decontamination and Reuse of Respirators in the Context of the COVID-19 Pandemic   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Summary: "In the context of the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic, there is a worldwide shortage of respirators or filtering face pieces (FFP). Due to the shortage of these devices, they should be prioritised for use in healthcare settings when aerosol-generating procedures (AGPs) are performed. Several different procedures have been tested for decontamination of respirators in the event of shortage. The most useful methods are highlighted in the overview table in the conclusions."
