There are two basic methods used in the sterilization of surgical instruments. The first is by the application of a dry heat that destroys the vegetative cells. The effect is similar to that of baking and causes the microbial cells to change into arid, spore-producing forms. However, before the drying process can be done, the object must be cleaned thoroughly with an LLD or a low-level disinfectant. The process is relatively quick and can be done in only 20 minutes.
Another method involves using long-acting reversible contraception. This can be achieved by implanting a device, using an injection, or by inserting a contraceptive pill. Your GP may recommend undergoing some form of counselling prior to the procedure to discuss the risks and benefits of this treatment. Before deciding on a sterilization method, it is best for couples to discuss the pros and cons of sterilization. Although consent is not legally required, the GP has the right to refuse the procedure if it is not in the patient’s best interests.
The first step in the sterilization process is the conditioning phase. The temperature and the time are selected to ensure that the objects undergo a consistent dose and are safe. The second step in the process is the exposure phase. The objects in the load are exposed to the steam at a specific temperature for a specified amount of time. The duration of exposure should be chosen to achieve maximum effectiveness. During the exposure phase, the objects in the load are subjected to a high-energy beam at a controlled temperature.

Global Sterilization Equipment and Disinfectants Market: Drivers
Approval and launch of new products is expected to propel growth of the global sterilization equipment and disinfectants market over the forecast period. For instance, in April 2018, the U.S Food and Drug Administration approved 3M Company’s new biological indicator system providing 24-minute results for steam sterilization.
Moreover, concerns regarding infection post-surgery is also infection. For instance, in 2017, a children’s hospital in New Orleans (United States) reported that at least a dozen of children who underwent cardiac surgery contacted a rare surgical site infection caused by mycobacterium abscessus.
High prevalence of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) is expected to propel growth of the global sterilization equipment and disinfectants market over the forecast period. For instance, according to the study, ‘The prevalence of healthcare associated infections among adult inpatients at nineteen large Australian acute-care public hospitals: a point prevalence survey’, published in BMC Antimicrobial Resistance & Infection Control in July 2019, the prevalence of patients with a HAI was 9.9%. Hospital prevalence rates ranged from 5.7% to 17.0%.
North America is expected to witness significant growth in the global sterilization equipment and disinfectants market owing to high burden of global sterilization equipment and disinfectants market in the region. For instance, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Clostridium difficile, a bacteria predominantly present in intestine, is responsible for causing infection of intestinal colon and is a major cause of healthcare acquired infections in the U.S. hospitals resulting in US $4.8 billion spend each year on acute healthcare facility.
