  1. Stethoscopes : a potential vector of infection ?

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    American college of emergency physicians ACEP research. Forum. San Francisco USA, 1995/02.

    Study objectives 

    To survey emergency care providers about their stethoscope-cleaning measures and to determine the correlation between these measures and the extent of Staphylococcus carriage.

    Design 

    Prospective cross-sectional analysis.

    Setting 

    University-affiliated community hospital ED.

    Participants 

    One hundred fifty health care providers, comprising emergency medicine house staff and attending physicians (n=50), ED nurses (n=50), and prehospital personnel working in Kent County, Michigan (n=50).

    Interventions 

    Providers were asked how often they cleaned their stethoscopes and which cleaning agents were used.

    We then cultured each stethoscope by pressing the diaphragm on mannitol agar and incubating the culture aerobically for 48 hours.

    Staphylococcus aureus was identified by means of standard measures.

    We examined the effects of different cleaning agents on 24 stethoscopes.

    The numbers of colony-forming units (CFUs) before and after cleaning with alcohol, nonionic detergent, and antiseptic soap were noted.

    Conclusion 

    Our results confirm that stethoscopes used in emergency practice are often contaminated with staphylococci and are therefore a potential.
