Reduce the aerosol by using the device intermittently.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USING MECTRON PIEZOSURGERY® EQUIPMENT
HOW TO MINIMIZE AEROSOL
- Rinse the patient’s mouth with mouthwash containing povidone-iodine 0.2% or hydrogen peroxide 1% for 1 minute,followed by a rinse with mouthwash containing chlorhexidine 0.2% for 1 minute so as to reduce the bioburden.While rinsing, do not have them gargle, but carefully expel the mouthwash into the spittoon (Fig. 1+2).
USING THE DEVICE:
Use powerful aspirators that reduce the spread of contamination of the aerosol in the air by 95% - High Volume Evacuation system. Keep the aspiration as close as possible to the treatment area to reduce aerosols to a minimum. Limit intraoral X-rays, which could stimulate the secretion of saliva and coughing, in favour of extraoral X-rays (panoramicX-rays, CBCT).
