Training Bulletin, Issue Number 103, Version 1.1 Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS)
Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care
Following the transport of a patient with suspected SARS, EMA’s and Paramedics must decontaminate the vehicle, stretcher and any equipment used during the call. It is recommended that Virox-5™, an accelerated hydrogen peroxide base formulation, be used as the disinfectant of choice for this purpose. Studies have concluded that Virox-5™ is over 99% effective in disinfecting surfaces when used according to manufactures specifications. The product is therefore suitable for use as a high level disinfectant and is safer than many other broad-spectrum germicides. (pg. 6)
