1979, alexian brothers hospital, san jose
1986, cedars sinai medical
1990, midway hospital, post anestesia care unit and operating rooms all did studies of why folks , ie, rns , were becoming ill whjen using water/ice machine. the studies each showed the micro organisms foun d and the treatments done as these grew to find out WHAT to use to KILL the organisms.
sorry , rakuflames, chlorine isnt what is used.
sorry gord, chlorine is not what worked.
chlorine does not KILL virus, fungus, nor mrsa nor pseudomonas areoginosa..
the most prevalent organisms found in the ice machines, as they are the most prevalent organisms found rampant in hospitals.
we found NOTHING KILLS these----except concept
2-5-6, distributed out of santa fe springs.
in 1979, we found hexachlorophene was a good PREVENTER of topical staphylococcus infections, but doesnt work on surfaces, only skin, and had been disallowed by fda because of damage to infants. they made a substance called hibiclens to replace that. that was not nearly as effective, as didnt provide long term protection as a film, which hexachlorophene did.
since 1979, mrsa and pseudomonas have become much mo0re difficult to kill.
the ONLY virus easily killed on any surface is hiv --and that is because it dies on removal
from the blood it grows in. go figger. tap water
WILL kill that one.
if chlorine were able to KILL virus and all bacteria, it woul dbe in use as a disinfecting agent in all hospitals. sorry, but it doesnt kill anything but people.
go for the belief that chlorine kills all--isnt my boat nor my life. i willbe safe and use that which is available to change the pH of the environment
these things live in and i will stock up on my proper antibiotix for use should something get me..
rakuflames-- being a typesetter is not same as being trained in a field and only some info gets to you-- none, if you do your job properly. typeset was discontinued long ago-- about the time they were discovering chlorine doesnt work--- many intensive care units were closed for operation due to that belief, as mrsa and pseudomonas spread through them.. many folks became infected with oral infections due to that belief. many folks got nosocomial infections of bones, lungs and blood due to those beliefs. so go ahead and trust those beliefs to keep you from becoming ill.
gord, if you need solid proof, look it up in each mentioned hospital's records--i hope by now they have become public.
