Cost comparison of using reusable versus disposable equipment for retinopathy of prematurity screening rounds.

Conference Paper

Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) screening rounds have been linked to pathogen transmission and serious adverse outcomes in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). Using Monte Carlo simulations, we found that it is more likely less expensive to use reusable than disposable equipment in NICUs of all levels for maintaining sterile equipment on ROP screening rounds.
