Do you disinfect loaner masks and units in-between clients?

Yes, our infection control procedures consist of an initial soap and water cleaning, followed by a high level disinfection (HLD). The HLD used at Breathe Easy is Virox’s Accel HLD5 which contains 2% hydrogen peroxide. HLD5 is a sporicidal, virucidal, fungicidal, bactericidal and tuberculocidal when used according to the manufacturer’s directions. Various low level and high level disinfectants are also used to clean PAP therapy systems in between clients, including vinegar. Mask and PAP therapy unit filters are also changed in between clients.
