Hydroxyls Prevent Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Bacteria. Prevention From Spreading Infecting
What Are Pseudomonas Infections?
Infections caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa are life-threatening and occur when bacteria gets into a person’s bloodstream. While this bacterium is present in most every part of the body, it can infect people who are sick. It is common in the intestinal tracts of healthy people and is found in moist areas of skin and in saliva. This common bacterial pathogen is associated with pneumonia, acute lung infections, and chronic lung disease.
This bacterium grows in many environments such as human infection, water, and soil. It is a pathogen for people who have lung disease such as cystic fibrosis or who undergo some medical procedures. The problem is that healthy people can carry this bacterium without knowing it and without experiencing any medical problems. While mostly healthy people may experience hot tub rash or swimmer’s ear, people who are weak can have deadly infections in their bodies. Doctors and scientists are working hard to learn how to best stop spread of Pseudomonas Aeruginosa bacteria.
Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Bacteria, Who Is at Risk?
People who spend time in the hospital are at risk of infection. The bacteria are able to spread quickly through cleaning supplies, medical equipment, and food. Patients who are weak because of surgery or illness can become very sick and die.
People with puncture wounds or burns can get dangerous infections in their urinary tracts, blood, or bones. Bacteria can also enter the body through needles and even catheters.
Moist environments such as swimming pools and hot tubs are common breeding grounds.
This bacterium can be a major problem for people who wear contacts. If bacteria are allowed to infect contact solution and grow there, then it can cause an infection. Getting medical care right away is imperative if that has occurred and is the best way to save your sight and start treating the infection.
What Are the Symptoms of Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Bacteria and Treatment?
The symptoms of an infection can vary depending on where the infection is located. Open wounds may have a blue-green pus either in the wound or near it while an ear infection will cause the ear to ache. Pneumonia will manifest as a cough. Infections elsewhere in the body can cause fatigue and malaise. Septicemia is caused when the infection is in the bloodstream and can spread throughout the body.
Antibiotics are the best treatment and there are usually two kinds used for best results. If the antibiotics don’t work, then surgery may be required to extract infected tissue. It’s important that patients take all of their antibiotics or they may not be able to kill the bacteria. When this happens, then the infection will not get better and the doctor will need to come up with another way to treat the patient and kill Pseudomonas.
How to Keep From Spreading the Infection
It’s important to do everything possible to avoid Pseudomonas infections since this bacterium is becoming more resistant to antibiotics. Frequent hand-washing and the isolation of people who are sick are great ways to help stop the spread, but there are other steps to take, including:
Flu Prevention Using Odorox/Pyure Hydroxyl Technology
Not sharing razors and towels
Covering scrapes and cuts and keeping them clean
Practicing good hygiene habits
Regular hand-washing with soap and water
Never using antibiotics for another person or neglecting to finish your course of antibiotics
There are also ways that you can help to prevent spreading the bacteria, including:
Keeping your environment clean by relying on a disinfectant to eliminate Pseudomonas on surfaces such as light switches, countertops, and doorknobs
Make sure that your wounds are clean and covered and not letting people touch your wound without proper protection
Washing all clothes, towels, and sheets with detergent in warm water and then drying them in a very hot dryer
Sanitizing the air and surfaces with Hydroxyls
Making sure that anyone who comes into contact with you washes his or her hands, especially if he or she has touched your wounds or changed a bandage
It is very important that you do everything you can to prevent the spread of these bacteria and one way that you can improve the health and sanitation of your office or home is by relying on an Odorox/Pyure Hydroxyl Generator air machine. These produce Hydroxyls that are able to kill and eliminate any germs or bacteria in the space.
It has been almost a year since we first met at the International Home Show and you introduced me to the benefits of the Odorox decontamination technology. After almost one year of trialing your product and purchasing equipment, I'm pleased to provide you with an update on our success year to date.
INDOOR POOL RESTORATION PROJECT
During the retiling of our indoor pool last spring we smelled a very nasty odour off-gassing during the excavation process and it was negatively affecting some of the common areas which our tenants use for private parties and other events. After contacting your company, you were able to make a site visit and bring us 3 machines to trial to help mitigate the odour. We placed an Oasis in the common room and used two Boss units in the adjacent hallways and elevator corridor and were able to successfully eliminate the odours in only a few hours. It was amazing and we were able to keep the Oasis in the common room during the restoration project ensuring that our clients had no ill effects from the smells during the entire construction project.
Subsequent to completing the pool project, we were able to successfully remediate odours such as smoke and other unwanted smells by placing your equipment right into the condo units as problems arose. The nice aspect of the technology is that it is safe to place while the unit is occupied yet removes odours such as smoke not only from the air, but from the carpets and walls. This saves us money without having to call in outside contractors to remediate our properties.
Obviously one of our concerns with respect to garbage rooms is both, odour and safety and like any Other property manager, there have been times when unwanted smells have seeped up through the garbage chutes negatively affecting tenants on the first few floors. We placed one of your Boss units into our main garbage area and were amazed that after one or two days that the odours were completely eliminated. The machine has now been operating for 8 months and we have had to do nothing but leave it on site running. There are virtually no electrical costs since the equipment operates on less than 2 amps. Since start-up we have eliminated the need to purchase chemicals and other odour remediation products. The added feature that your equipment also eliminates surface bacteria and air-borne viruses without touching them helps us ensure that no unwanted pathogens find their way from the garbage room to our tenants via the garbage chutes.
I was very skeptical when I first heard about your product line at the Toronto show. Truthfully it is impossible to believe that you can simply plug in a machine and not only get the smells out of the air, but as well walls and ceilings or anything else without touching it. You proved me wrong!
This condominium is a very high end building with some owners paying several million dollars for their suites. After using chemicals and other masking agents to try and protect the expected smells and odours common when dealing with garbage, it is great to finally own a product that is maintenance free, GREEN, and that can be used for many different applications.

I wanted to thank you personally for the opportunity to trial the Hydroxyl Unit for our Assisted Living Centers.
As you know we are a retirement residence that assists with physically and cognitive impairment of senior citizens.
We found your unit to be of tremendous use especially with the consistent smells associated with bladder problems.
Your machine was very useful for sanitizing our air in all (common) areas including lounges and dining room. Our home was able to keep flu outbreaks at a very non existent level. We put the machine into resident's room- who were showing signs of illness- and with in a couple of days all signs were diminished.
Thank you all for keeping our air healthy and wishing you much success
