7th Edition Infection Control, Sterilization & Decontamination Virtual Conference- USA [Time Zone- Eastern Standard Time (EST)]

The pandemic has disrupted healthcare systems frameworks around the world, with hospitals being overwhelmed due to the increasing influx of patients. The spread of COVID-19 has prodded a surge in demand for cleaning and disinfection products due to the growing awareness about hygiene, health, and safety. The increasing healthcare expenditure in North America being the major factor driving the demand and uptake of antiseptics and disinfectants in the region.

The utilization of reprocessed equipment to disinfect or sterilize medical devices is higher than normal now since improper decontamination of surgical instruments, endoscopic devices, respiratory care devices, and reusable hemodialysis machines can increase the chances of healthcare associated infections. Patient-to-patient pathogen transmission via medical devices can be entirely prevented by properly sterilizing medical devices.

MarketsandMarkets is proud to announce 7th Edition Infection Control, Sterilization and Decontamination in Healthcare Virtual Conference scheduled for 7th – 8th October 2021, aiming at providing platform to experts from hospitals, academia, and government institutions discussing the innovations, challenges, and future aspects of infection control, decontamination, and sterilization.

This congress aims at providing a platform to all the stakeholders, to discuss the challenges in maintaining the infection free environment in the hospitals and effective ways to reduce the chances of healthcare associated infections through contaminated medical devices.
