Abstract [en]

Clothing systems used in operating rooms are compared to clothing systems used in food industry and in pharmaceutical manufacturing. For all these industries the control of the concentration of airborne bacteria-carrying particles are of vital importance. The emission of large particles with regard to clothing system quality is commented. Results from the study can be used to calculate expected concentrations of airborne aerobic colony forming units in the operation room when clothing system and number of people in the room are known. The study shows that the commonly used protective clothing systems need to be upgraded in operation rooms where patients, sensitive to infections undergo operations.
