Spreading of infectious materials from the laser interaction zone : viruses and bacteria.
Laser-tissue interaction and tissue optics. Conference. Vienna (ATR), 1996/09/07.
Actual occupational infections of medical staff is dominated by HBV, HIV and HCV-infections by dermal blood inocculation like needle injuries.
What amount of these blood borne infections was possibly done via the aerosol pathway is unknown today.
Looking at the laser generated aerodynamic particle sizes and the particle size of human pathogen viruses as circulating or cell fixed units shows common transmission abilities to the human respiratory system.
In cell tissue monolayer model systems and contaminated serum sytems with virus infections this mechanisms were demonstrated as viable.
For safety evaluation the lifetime, spreading behaviour and infection potential by viruses and bacterias of contaminated human laser aerosol must be further characterized.
