Konferencja ICPIC 1 lipca 2011 roku - zobacz wywiad

Zobacz wywiad z dr Schmidtem. Fragment wystąpienia Profesora i V-ce szefa Mikrobiologii i Immunologi na Uniwesytecie Medycznym w Południowej Karolinie, podczas Konferencji ICPIC 1 lipca 2011 roku (w języku angielskim) znajduje się poniżej.

 

Today's announcement from Dr Schmidt

I just wanted to say that the 40% reduction in risk of infection to be announced later today is the most conservative figure from the dataset for the subset of patients with the lowest ‘exposure’ to copper surfaces.  Patients were in either a copper or a non-copper room but the number of copper components in that room varied for a variety of reasons: items moved around, heavy patients had to be put into special beds which were not available as ‘copperised’, the copper nurse call buttons were substituted in some rooms as they were too difficult to be operated by the very sick patients.  The location of each copper item was tracked throughout the course of the study. 
 
The attached slide is for your information only and is from Dr Schmidt’s presentation.  It shows the impact of copper on two other patient groups with higher ‘exposure’ to copper (almost 70% reduction in risk of infection for those who experienced the 100% exposure to copper surfaces).  Please do not use either of the two higher numbers at this stage.  I wanted to share this information with you so that you understood the context of the 40% reduction.
 
The results are remarkable and achieved with 1.5 m2 of copper over the critical touch surfaces.
