Methods of Infection Spread
Methods of Infection Spread
- Contact with a colonized person, an actively infected person, a host, or a fomite is the most frequent route of transmission in the OR.
- Body fluids (blood, urine, CSF) are a method of transmission that depends on access to a mucosal surface or a break in the integrity of the skin barrier.
- Droplet transmission is the transfer of infectious particles via suspension in large fluid droplets such as those released during coughing or sneezing which travel short distances.
- Airborne transmission is similar to droplet transmission with the exception that the particles are small enough to remain suspended in air and travel in air currents.
