Cancer 2004;101:2713–21. All patients being treated for LTBI should be clinically monitored at least monthly, including a brief clinical assessment conducted in the person's primary language for signs of hepatitis (e.g., nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, jaundice, and yellow or brown urine). Infection-control plans should address HCWs who transfer from one health-care setting to another and consider that the transferring HCWs might be at an equivalent or higher risk for exposure in different settings. The patient volume is high, and the HMO is located in the inner city where TB rates are the highest in the state. The range of volumetric airflow rates was 110 cfm–1,152 cfm, and the equivalent ACH range was an average of 8–22 in a standard-sized, substantially well-mixed, single-patient room. After an autopsy is performed on a body with suspected or confirmed TB disease, allow adequate time to elapse to ensure removal of M. tuberculosis–contaminated room air before performing another procedure in the same room (Tables 1 and Compared with the general population, TB prevalence is higher among inmates and is associated with a higher prevalence of HIV infection (197), increased illicit substance use, lower socioeconomic status (201), and their presence in settings that are at high risk for transmission of M. tuberculosis. Medical Center A is classified as medium risk and uses TST for annual screening. RR-17). Clin Infect Dis 2005;40:366–73. HEPA filter maintenance should be performed only by adequately trained personnel and only while the ventilation system or room-air recirculation unit is not being operated. Nonpowered air-purifying respirators work by drawing ambient air through the filter during inhalation. American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists. The second level of the hierarchy is the use of environmental controls to prevent the spread and reduce the concentration of infectious droplet nuclei in ambient air. Infect Control Hosp Epidemiol 2001;22:449–55. surgical mask/N95 disposable respirator. Respirator maintenance should be an integral part of an overall respirator program. AIHA Journal 1963;24:295–304. Therefore, careful attention should be paid to measures designed to enable and foster adherence (31,319,382). J Inter Soc Respir Protect 2003;20:45–56. An expert trainer includes persons who have documented training experience. Maintaining the classification of medium risk for at least 1 year is recommended. The probability that a person who is exposed to M. tuberculosis will become infected depends primarily on the concentration of infectious droplet nuclei in the air and the duration of exposure to a person with infectious TB disease. The efficacy of upper room ultraviolet germicidal irradiation in inactivating airborne microorganisms under incomplete mixing conditions. Infection-control criteria requires AII room windows and doors to remain closed, except when doors must be opened for persons to enter or leave the room. Initial therapy for tuberculosis in the era of multidrug resistance. For HCWs who have indeterminate test results, providers should consult the responsible laboratorian for advice on interpreting the result and making additional decisions (383). Success of adherence to infection-control practices in decreasing the risk for transmission of. Schulte JM, Moore M, Kistler V, et al. Goble M. Drug-resistant tuberculosis. Philadelphia, PA: Hanley & Belfus, Inc.; 1989:753–70. Physical indicators used to provide a continuous visual sign that a room is under negative pressure. However, cautions regarding making medical care decisions for persons whose conditions are at increased risk for progressing to TB disease from M. tuberculosis infection have been presented (Box 4). JAMA 1991;266:2000–3. Enclosing devices for local exhaust ventilation include 1) booths for sputum induction or administration of aerosolized medications (Figure 2), 2) tents or hoods for enclosing and isolating a patient, and 3) BSCs (165). The association between occupation and tuberculosis. Because air velocity, air mixing, relative humidity, UVGI intensity, and lamp position all affect the efficacy of UVGI systems, consult a UVGI system designer before purchasing and installing a UVGI system. Surgical masks—premarket notification [510(k)] submissions. Infect Control Hosp Epidemiol 1998;19:487–93. Infection control in the bronchoscopy suite. M. tuberculosis is usually transmitted only through air, not by surface contact. Am J Infect Control 1997;25:463–6. In the United States, vaccination with BCG is not recommended routinely for anyone, including HCWs or children (227). Another term for NTM is mycobacterium other than tuberculosis (MOTT). Transmission of Mycobacterium tuberculosis from medical waste. Collins FM. If an AII or comparable room is not available for surgery or postoperative recovery, air-cleaning technologies (e.g., HEPA filtration and UVGI) can be used to increase the number of equivalent ACH (see Environmental Controls); however, the infection-control committee should be involved in the selection and placement of these supplemental controls. Health-care settings include inpatient settings, outpatient settings, and nontraditional facility-based settings. A precipitate made from a sterile filtrate of. Proper use of (see Respiratory Protection) and the need to inform the infection-control program of factors that might affect the efficacy of respiratory protection as required by OSHA. Clearly labeling which fan services a given area will help to prevent accidental shutdowns (472). Ventilation rates. Stead WW. 2005 Critical access hospitals: surveillance, prevention, and control of infection. Settings in which patients with suspected or confirmed TB disease are not expected to be encountered do not need an AII room or a respiratory-protection program for the prevention of transmission of M. tuberculosis. TST training should include supervised TST administration, which is a procedure in which an expert TST trainer supervises a TST trainee during all steps on the procedural observation checklist for TST administration (Appendix F). N Engl J Med 1992;326:231–5. respiratory tract disease with involvement of the lung or airways, including larynx; failure to cover the mouth and nose when coughing; and. Tents and booths should have sufficient airflow to remove at least 99% of airborne particles during the interval between the departure of one patient and the arrival of the next (Table 1). If greater than or equal to three TB patients for the preceding year, classify as medium risk. New York, NY: MacMillan; 1961. A major consideration is the placement of UVGI fixtures to achieve sufficient irradiance of the upper-air space. The radiographic appearance of tuberculosis in patients with the acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) and pre-AIDS. These settings should develop written policies that specify 1) indications for airborne precautions, 2) persons authorized to initiate and discontinue airborne precautions, 3) specific airborne precautions, 4) AII room-monitoring procedures, 5) procedures for managing patients who do not adhere to airborne precautions, and 6) criteria for discontinuing airborne precautions. CDC. Carr DT, Karlson AG, Stilwell GG. persons suspected of having pulmonary TB disease for whom bronchoscopy is planned. Biosafety recommendations for laboratories performing diagnostic testing for TB have been published (74,75,138,156,157). This interval will vary based on the efficiency of the ventilation or filtration system (Table 1). Importance of completing therapy for LTBI or TB disease to protect the HCW's health and to reduce the risk to others. Because some institutions might adopt BAMT for the purposes of testing for M. tuberculosis infection, infection-control programs might be confronted with interpreting historic and current TST and BAMT results when HCWs transfer to a different setting. (Continued) Administrative, environmental, and respiratory-protection controls for selected health-care settings, Appendix B. Findings indicate that various commercially available units are useful in reducing the concentration of airborne particles and are therefore helpful in reducing airborne disease transmission. Autopsies should not be performed on bodies with suspected or confirmed TB disease without adequate protection for those performing the autopsy procedures. Am J Med 1984;76:42–52. Trainees should be provided resources as an adjunct to the respiratory-protection program. Patients with a cough should be instructed to turn their heads away from persons and to cover their mouth and nose with their hands or preferably a cloth or tissue when coughing or sneezing. The TB infection-control measures recommended by CDC in 1994 were implemented widely in health-care facilities in the United States. Joseph HA, Shrestha-Kuwahara R, Lowry D, et al. Product certified by CDC's National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that provides both respiratory protection and bloodborne pathogen protection. Experts who might be consulted include industrial hygienists, engineers, and health physicists. Wallace BM, Lasker JS. Environmental controls are the second line of defense in the TB infection-control program, after administrative controls. Therefore, the use of portable room-air recirculation units in conjunction with upper-air UVGI systems might increase the overall removal of M. tuberculosis droplet nuclei from room air. Effectiveness depends on the ability of the portable room-air recirculation unit to circulate as much of the air in the room as possible through the HEPA filter. Efficiency of a portable indoor air cleaner in removing pollens and fungal spores. A dirty UVGI lamp should be allowed to cool and then should be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer recommendations so that no residue remains. Although gastric lavage is useful in the diagnosis of pediatric TB disease, the grade of the positive AFB smear result does not correlate with infectiousness. Relating to or located at the tip (an apex). Recommendations of the Advisory Council for the Elimination of Tuberculosis. However, on annual testing, three of the 20 respiratory therapists tested had QFT-G conversions, for a rate of 15%. Social Statistics for a Diverse Society, 8th Edition: Chava Frankfort-Nachmias & Anna Leon-Guerrero. A nosocomial outbreak of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis. In conjunction with a medical and diagnostic evaluation, HCWs with positive test results for M. tuberculosis should be considered for treatment of LTBI (Box 5) after TB disease has been excluded by further medical evaluation. Esterhai JL Jr, Reynolds MR, Chou L. Hazards to the orthopaedic trauma surgeon: occupational exposure to tuberculosis. A case is detected, documented, and reported. The scope of settings in which the guidelines apply has been broadened to include laboratories and additional outpatient and nontraditional facility-based settings. UVGI intensity field plays a primary role in the performance of upper-air UVGI systems. The plan should outline the responsibility and authority for maintenance and address staff training needs. Am Rev Respir Dis 1989;140:1832. Infectiousness of air from a tuberculosis ward: ultraviolet irradiation of infected air: comparative infectiousness of different patients. A written maintenance plan should be developed that outlines the responsibility and authority for maintenance of the environmental controls and addresses HCW training needs. When N95 disposable respirators are used, filter penetration might approach 5% (50% of the allowable leakage of 10% for an N95 disposable respirator). Ventilation recommendations for other negative-pressure rooms in new or renovated health-care settings have been presented (see Risk Classification Examples). A new threat from an old nemesis. 2nd ed. Suspected or confirmed TB cases must be reported to the local or state health department in accordance with laws and regulations. Tubercle 1988;69:237–40. CDC. CDC prepared the guidelines in this report in consultation with experts in TB, infection control, environmental control, respiratory protection, and occupational health. Developing Materials for Language Teaching. The rationale for cleaning, disinfecting, or sterilizing patient-care instruments and equipment can be understood more readily if medical devices, equipment, and surgical materials are divided into three general categories (486). A material used in diagnostic tests for detecting infection with M. tuberculosis. The air in an AII room is preferably exhausted to the outside, but can be recirculated if the return air is filtered through an high efficiency particulate respirator (HEPA) filter. Health hazard evaluations: tuberculosis 1990–1999. Murthy BV, Pereira BJ. Sokal JE. Determine the types of environmental controls that are currently in place, and determine if any are needed in the setting (Appendices A and D). McElroy PD, Southwick KL, Fortenberry ER, et al. Textbook of respiratory medicine. A comprehensive international approach. Description of HICPAC recommendation categories. This configuration is not always possible but should be used whenever feasible. RR-20). In patients with symptoms or signs of TB disease, pulmonary infiltrates might only be apparent on a computed tomography (CT) scan. Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates, Inc. SGNA monograph series. Cautions regarding facial hair and respirator use. Riley RL, Wells WF, Mills CC, Nyka W, McLean RL. When results from drug-susceptibility tests become available, the antituberculosis treatment regimen should be reassessed, and the drugs used in combination should be adjusted accordingly (376,377,379–381). Because mycobacteria have the highest intrinsic level of resistance among the vegetative bacteria, viruses, and fungi, any germicide with a tuberculocidal claim on the label (i.e., an intermediate-level disinfectant) is considered capable of inactivating many pathogens, including much less resistant organisms such as the bloodborne pathogens (e.g., hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, and HIV). TST trainers should attempt to organize the sessions so that at least 50% of the TST results read have a result of >0 mm according to the expert TST reader. Assess the number of AII rooms needed for the setting. A 60-year follow-up study. Although data on the effectiveness of respiratory protection from various hazardous airborne materials have been collected, the precise level of effectiveness in protecting HCWs from M. tuberculosis transmission in health-care settings has not been determined. Uncontaminated supply air mixes with contaminated room air (dilution), and air is subsequently removed from the room by the exhaust system (removal). Guidelines for preventing the transmission of tuberculosis in health-care settings, with special focus on HIV-related issues. Occupational risk from ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) lamps. Drivers, HCWs, and other staff who are transporting persons with suspected or confirmed infectious TB disease might consider wearing an N95 respirator. Fennelly KP, Martyny JW, Fulton KE, Orme IM, Cave DM, Heifets LB. The classification of potential ongoing transmission should be used as a temporary classification only. Only limited seconds of direct exposure to the intense UVGI in the upper-air space or in ducts can cause dermatosis or photokeratitis. General information concerning respiratory protection for aerosols, including M. tuberculosis, has been published (272–274). A recent TST (performed in â¤12 months) is not a contraindication to the administration of an additional test unless the TST was associated with severe ulceration or anaphylactic shock, which are substantially rare adverse events (30,237,238). Mycopathologia 1980;70:169–79. A PAPR is equipped with a blower that forcibly draws ambient air through high efficiency filters and then delivers the filtered air to the facepiece. CDC. Seitz T, Decker J. The risk classification for the setting should help to make this determination, depending on the number of TB patients examined. Develop a written TB infection-control plan that outlines a protocol for the prompt recognition and transfer of persons who have suspected or confirmed TB disease to another health-care setting. HEPA filters can be used as an added safety measure to clean air from AII rooms and local exhaust devices (e.g., booths, tents, and hoods) before exhausting it to the outside. It may have approximately 50% efficacy for preventing pulmonary TB disease in adults. Devices called smoke tubes generate the chemical aerosol resembling smoke, which follows the local air currents wherever it is released. Snider DE Jr, Cauthen GM. Source control is amenable to situations where the source has been identified and the generation of the contaminant is localized. More information . Health and safety issues. In accordance with local and state regulations, local health departments should be notified of all cases of suspected TB. The positive predictive value is dependent on the prevalence of infection with M. tuberculosis in the population being tested and the sensitivity and specificity of the test (228,329,330). All patients were promptly put into an AII room, and no contact investigations were performed. Reconstitution of DTH in HIV-infected persons taking antiretroviral therapy (ART). Fit testing provides a method to determine which respirator model and size fits the wearer best and to confirm that the wearer can properly fit the respirator. When possible, postpone non-urgent surgical procedures on patients with suspected or confirmed TB disease until the patient is determined to be noninfectious or determined to not have TB disease. Determine the types of environmental controls needed other than AII rooms (see TB Airborne Precautions). The training can be conducted in conjunction with other related training regarding infectious disease associated with airborne transmission. A fit test is used to determine which respirator fits the user adequately and to ensure that the user knows when the respirator fits properly.
