Why You Should Attend:

“Sterilization means the use of a physical or chemical procedure to destroy all microbial life, including highly resistant bacterial endospores.”

While discussing this topic, it becomes important to distinguish between sterilization and disinfection. Sterilization results in destruction of all forms of microbial life, while disinfection results in destruction of specific pathogenic microorganisms. Because disinfection is faster and less expensive, some hospitals substitute highlevel disinfection for sterilization of medical instruments. An object should be disinfected or sterilized depending on its intended use.

Bacterial spores are the most resistant of all living organisms because their capability to withstand destructive agents.

Although the chemical or physical process used to destroy all pathogenic microorganisms including spores is not absolute, when all parameters of the sterilization process have been met, instruments, supplies and equipment are thought to be sterile.

Critical objects (those that enter sterile tissues or the vascular system or through which blood flows, such as implanted medical devices) require sterilization before use. Items that touch mucous membranes or nonintact skin, like endoscopes, respiratory therapy equipment, and diaphragms, require high-level disinfection.

Sterilization falls into the following three categories:

• High temperature/pressure sterilization (autoclave)

• Chemical sterilization

• Radiation sterilization .
