Is ethylene oxide (EO or EtO) more toxic than hydrogen peroxide? What are the most prevalent myths about EO in the industry today? What does the future of EO look like?
Andersen’s President and CEO, A.E. (Ted) May joined Beyond Clean’s Justin Poulin for an intensely honest conversation about gas sterilization as part of the “2021 Expert Series Conference” held on May 14, 2021.
In typical Beyond Clean fashion, Poulin asked the tough questions regarding the history surrounding EO and its role in the future of hospital sterile processing departments, specifically around duodenoscope and endoscope reprocessing.
Every month, Andersen’s Ted May explores topics like safety, history, emissions and even molecular science related to medical device gas sterilization. These articles are published as part of Beyond Clean’s “Expert Series”—articles written by medical experts tackling some of the most pressing issues facing Sterile Processing departments.
Beyond Clean is the global voice for sterile processing, connecting individuals through innovative and disruptive platforms such as podcasting, social media and new technology.
Directly following the conversation, Ted participated in a question and answer session with viewers.
