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.
