Fecal Patina in the OR- Dr. Silvia Munoz-Price at VCU Combined Anesthesia and Surgery Grand Rounds- November 12, 2015

It was standing room only at the VCU Kontos Medical  Sciences Building for Dr. Silvia Munoz-Price's lecture on the Fecal Patina in the Operating Room. The lecture is largely based on the editorial published in 2015 in Anesthesia and Analgesia.

The OR environment and anesthesia work areas are teeming with pathogens which can lead to IV line stopcock colonization and likely heighten the risk of bloodstream infections and surgical site infections.

Bioburden reduction in the OR is a looming challenge for decreasing surgical site infection risk. 

More to come.
