AeroClave's Proactive Decon Protocol

The AeroClave Protocol is a proactive approach to infection control with an emphasis on speed, safety, efficacy and adaptability. Our automated, no-touch systems reduce staff exposure to dangerous pathogens, while providing the consistent and reliable delivery of disinfectant not achievable through your current process.

Infectious Disease Transportation Network

The Florida Infectious Disease Transportation Network and similar initiatives in other states are being established to ensure the safe transport of infected patients from airports and hospitals. AeroClave decontamination is an important component of the network.

AeroClave Family of Products

AeroClave's family of products represent the latest in automated, no-touch decontamination technology.  We are constantly innovating to bring to the market new and improved devices to help protect the first responder community. 

Reality is that a disaster is not the closest or only threat

Firefighters and paramedics are at the crossroads of infection between the public and hospital environments.

Common threats you deal with daily. And might not know it.

MRSA colonization rate of EMS workers is 1400% greater than the general population.

Key considerations when specifying decontamination technology

1.

Reduce staff and patient exposure

Using a “no-touch” decontamination process reduces your staff’s exposure, keeping them out of harm’s way.

2.

Fast asset turnaround

Specify a technology that can quickly decontaminate your vehicle and assets to get them back in the field as soon as possible.

3.

Decontaminate multiple sites

The ability to use your equipment in multiple scenarios, against multiple pathogens, allows you to combat the unknown.

4.

Interoperability with other agencies

Take advantage of best practices, familiarity with equipment in mutual aid situations and reduced operational cost.

5.

Find a system to use on a regular basis

This means that the process must be safe for your staff, your sensitive electronics and the environment.  

Effectiveness

I'm interested in...


The AeroClave Protocol​​​​​​​

Study shows that AeroClave is 90% more effective than manual cleaning alone.

Fogging = Effective Decontamination

AeroClave’s room fogging technology creates a fine, atomized particle that reaches into nooks, crevices and corners that disinfecting sprays & wipes just can't reach. The dry mist permeates the entire area disinfecting surfaces while reaching under counters and furniture.

AeroClave vs. Manual Cleaning

Studies show that manual cleaning may actually be spreading dangerous pathogens to previously non-contaminated surfaces. In addition, human error and ineffective techniques may significantly lessen the effectiveness of standard methods of disinfection.  

Safe & Environmentally Friendly

Chlorine bleach produces harmful by-products to the environment. The EPA registered hospital disinfectant AeroClave uses breaks down to a simple salt and produces no harmful by-products. Safe for your equipment, staff and the environment.

Destroys Pathogens

The proprietary AeroClave Process utilizes an EPA-approved hospital disinfectant to decontaminate rooms, vehicles, and equipment as an adjunct to gross decontamination.  


Proven effective against MRSA, HIV-1, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Ebola, MERS, CRE, E. coli, Norovirus, H1N1, Legionella pneumophilia, Salmonella, Listeria, mold, mildew and much more.

" It's not what I can see, but what I can't see that bothers me the most. Using AeroClave has given me added assurance that we are doing everything we can to protect our patients, our firefighters and their families. "

Keys to Success

1.  Break the chain of infection

No matter if viruses and bacteria come from a biological event or through day-to-day contact, germs spread from person to person through a common series of events. The best way to prevent germs from infecting more people is to break the chain of infection. AeroClave’s fully automated technology helps to eliminate the human error associated with conventional cleaning methods, thereby enhancing existing disinfection protocols in hospitals, aircraft and emergency vehicles.

2.  ​​​​​​​Reactive vs. Proactive

When most think of decontamination, they think of worst case scenarios:  a pandemic flu, the Ebola outbreak, a biological attack with smallpox.  Decontamination is immediately thought of as a reactive technology.  There is an event and you use the equipment to mitigate the effects of that one event.  


The AeroClave Protocol turns this thinking on its head and transforms decontamination into a proactive tool.

3.  Whole House Decon

AeroClave's solutions are unique in that they are truly multi-functional.  The same system used on the ambulance can be used all over the station.  Dayrooms, bunk rooms, kitchen, turn out room...absolutely everywhere. 


And using the equipment proactively has significantly lowered sick time. 



Some Common Questions

Below are some of the more common questions about the AeroClave Process:

What disinfectant is used?

AeroClave uses Vital Oxide, an EPA registered hospital disinfectant that is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial that performs against a wide variety of bacteria, yeasts, viruses, fungi, spores, molds, mildews, and other microbes. It is ready to fog right from the bottle. Vital Oxide includes components that dramatically decrease the size of its particles making it perfect for use in the AeroClave Process.

How do we kill viruses?

The process kills viruses by altering and preventing protein formation.  This is done through a reaction to peptone, a water-soluble substance that is formed from hydrolysis of proteins to amino acids.  The virus effectively starves to death.

What is the active ingredient?

The main ingredient in Vital Oxide is chlorine dioxide (CIO2).  CIO2 has been recognized for its powerful disinfecting properties since the early 1900’s.  Although it has chlorine in its name, its chemistry is very different from the corrosive chemistry of chlorine bleach.

Safe for your staff and equipment

The AeroClave Process qualifies for a health and safety rating of 0 (HMIS=0) and an EPA toxicity rating of Category 4, meaning that exposure exhibits no oral or inhalation toxicities, and only a mild irritation when sprayed directly into the eyes.  In fact, no special personal protective equipment is required during spraying or fogging except eye protection.

How do we destroy bacteria?

Bacteria are killed through the process of oxidation. The CIO2 aerosolized by the AeroClave Process steals electrons from the amino acid of the microbial cell. By stealing an electron from the amino acid, CIO2 chemically alters the amino acid preventing it from building protein.  Without the protein, the cell wall crumbles and the unprotected organism inside dies.  The bacterial cell is destroyed.

Let's Discuss the Financial Benefits of Decon

Departments all over the country are turning decontamination into a budget saving opportunity.

Here are the key points to take away.

1.


Disaster Preparedness

Ebola taught us that a biological disaster is a real threat.  The Department of Homeland Security and the states are moving forward with plans to transport patients to the closest treatment center. But the real threat to your department is when your crew is exposed to an undiagnosed patient.

2.


Enhanced Cleaning

Most departments are using cleaning procedures from 100 years ago.  AeroClave's new decontamination technologies bring real advancements to the cleaning process and are 90% more effective than current procedures.  In addition, the new technologies are safer for your crew and equipment.

3.


Proactive Decontamination

Following the AeroClave protocol has proven to reduce departmental sick leave.

4.


Reduce Sick Leave

The ability of Proactive Decontamination to reduce sick leave gives departments the capability of monetizing this savings.

5.


The Bottom Line ...

Pay for your pandemic response solution by reducing sick leave expense through proactive AeroClave use.

Proactive use of decontamination

equipment reduced unscheduled leave for

one department by

over 34% 

See how WPFD reduced unscheduled leave by over 34%

"Our analysis shows that since the introduction of regular, enhanced infection control procedures utilizing the AeroClave system, we have witnessed an approximate 34% decrease in UTO from previous years. "
