A process used to render the environment visually clean, or to remove the bulk of microbial contamination prior to sterilisation/disinfection. Hot water and soap or detergent is sufficient for this purpose.
A process in which vegetative organisms, but not spores, are destroyed or reduced to a relatively safe level e.g. used for equipment that does not breach normal body defence mechanisms or is in contact with intact skin.
A process in which living organisms are destroyed or removed e.g. used for all equipment that is to be introduced into a sterile body area.
In accordance with the Infection Control policy referred to above, spirometers are classified as intermediate risk.
