Efficacy of UV-C disinfection in hyperbaric chambers.
Ultraviolet C (UV-C) light reduces contamination on high-touch clinical surfaces. We assessed the efficacy of 2 UV-C devices at eradicating important clinical pathogens in hyperbaric chambers. Both devices were similarly efficacious against MRSA but differed significantly against C. difficile. Additionally, direct UV-C exposure was more efficacious against both species than indirect exposure.
