Assessing the impact of handwashing soaps on the population dynamics of carbapenemase-producing and non-carbapenemase-producing Enterobacterales.

M A Boyle, A D Kearney, B Sawant, H Humphreys,

Carbapenemase-producing bacteria have persistent environmental reservoirs in handwashing sinks. This study assessed the impact of handwashing soaps on the population dynamics of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacterales (CPE) and non-CPE. A number of isolates were grown in minimal media with or without two hand soaps marketed for use in health care. Soap A ... Read more >>

'Off the rails': hospital bed rail design, contamination, and the evaluation of their microbial ecology.

M A Boyle, A Kearney, P C Carling, H Humphreys,

Microbial contamination of the near-patient environment is an acknowledged reservoir for nosocomial pathogens. The hospital bed and specifically bed rails have been shown to be frequently and heavily contaminated in observational and interventional studies. Whereas the complexity of bed rail design has evolved over the years, the microbial contamination of ... Read more >>

Background The triangular cord (TC) sign is the appearance of a triangular shaped echogenic density visualised immediately cranial to the portal vein bifurcation on ultrasonographic examination. Several studies have reported that this ultrasonographic sign is a reliable and helpful marker in identifying Biliary Atresia (BA). Aims To report the identification of the TC ... Read more >>

Minimizing microbial contamination risk simultaneously from multiple hospital washbasins by automated cleaning and disinfection of U-bends with electrochemically activated solutions.

E C Deasy, E M Moloney, M A Boyle, J S Swan, D A Geoghegan, G I Brennan, T E Fleming, M J O'Donnell, D C Coleman,

BACKGROUND:Outbreaks of infection associated with microbial biofilm in hospital hand washbasin U-bends are being reported increasingly. In a previous study, the efficacy of a prototype automated U-bend decontamination method was demonstrated for a single non-hospital pattern washbasin. It used two electrochemically activated solutions (ECA) generated from brine: catholyte with detergent ... Read more >>

Elimination of biofilm and microbial contamination reservoirs in hospital washbasin U-bends by automated cleaning and disinfection with electrochemically activated solutions.

J S Swan, E C Deasy, M A Boyle, R J Russell, M J O'Donnell, D C Coleman,

Washbasin U-bends are reservoirs of microbial contamination in healthcare environments. U-Bends are constantly full of water and harbour microbial biofilm.To develop an effective automated cleaning and disinfection system for U-bends using two solutions generated by electrochemical activation of brine including the disinfectant anolyte (predominantly hypochlorous acid) and catholyte (predominantly sodium ...

Control of bacterial contamination of washbasin taps and output water using Ecasol: a one-year study.

M A Boyle, M J O'Donnell, A Miller, R J Russell, D C Coleman,

BACKGROUND: Contaminated washbasin taps and output water are an important source of bacteria that may cause nosocomial infection. A five-week pretreatment study of hot and cold water from 15 washbasin taps at Dublin Dental Hospital showed consistently heavy contamination by aerobic heterotrophic bacteria: mean bacterial counts of 482.5 [standard deviation ...

Lack of cytotoxicity by Trustwater Ecasol™ used to maintain good quality dental unit waterline output water in keratinocyte monolayer and reconstituted human oral epithelial tissue models.

M A Boyle, M J O'Donnell, R J Russell, D C Coleman,

UNLABELLED: We previously showed that residual treatment of dental chair unit (DCU) supply water using the electrochemically-activated solution Trustwater Ecasol™ (2.5 ppm) provided an effective long-term solution to the problem of dental unit waterline (DUWL) biofilm resulting in DUWL output water quality consistently superior to potable water. OBJECTIVES: To investigate ... Read more >>

Surgical complications of segmental Le Fort I osteotomy.

M W Ho, M A Boyle, J C Cooper, M D Dodd, D Richardson,

Segmental maxillary osteotomy is a useful adjunct in orthognathic surgery for the correction of vertical and transverse maxillary deformities, but we know of few published reports that document complications. We evaluated the complication rates associated with segmental maxillary surgery in our unit by retrospective review of medical records, radiographs, and ... Read more >>

Butyrate oxidation is impaired in the colonic mucosa of sufferers of quiescent ulcerative colitis.

M A Chapman, M F Grahn, M A Boyle, M Hutton, J Rogers, N S Williams,

The short chain fatty acids, acetate, propionate, and butyrate are produced by colonic bacterial fermentation of non-starch polysaccharides. Butyrate is the major fuel source for the colonic epithelium and there is evidence to suggest that its oxidation is impaired in ulcerative colitis. Triplicate biopsy specimens were taken at colonoscopy from ... Read more >>
