UV Light SterilizationTue, 04/28/2020 - 8:50AM
Does anybody have any experience or knowledge about using UV lights for driveline sterilization/disinfection?
Saw an old post which referenced using a UV light from Amazon to disinfect the area around the driveline where it enters the body before applying sterile bandage. Tried to do some research on Amazon and Google about sterilization like this but did not find anything specific enough (or convincing enough) for me to spend upwards of $200 USD. Understand the main reason we usually get driveline infections is from trauma. But also have read it isn't a questions of "if" you might get an infection but "when" you get an infection and would like to add this simple step of sterilization of it does work.
Any suggestions, directions, URLs, etc. would be appreciated.
