Handles are known to be a source of cross-contamination and studies have shown that wiping the handles with impregnated germicidal wipes is not effective - with between 86%1 and 75%2 remaining positive for bacterial contamination.
Layngoscopes are classed as high risk. The AAGBI states that single use “is encouraged” and acknowledges that “single use disposable equipment will remove the difficulties of re-use and decontamination procedures”. The AAGBI also states that reusable handles be “sterilised by SSDs after every use”3.
Single use is cost effective compared with reusable purchase, maintenance, replacement, reprocessing and sterilisation costs.
