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 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 Hydroxyl Generator air machine. These produce Hydroxyls that are able to kill and eliminate any germs or bacteria in the space.
Benefits of Odorox Technology, Testimonials from our Customers
Dear Mr. Swon,
My name is Jim Palmieri and I am the General Manager of Allpro Restoration Services in Glens Falls, NY. We are a local company that has been caring for and servicing water, smoke and fire damage customers in Upstate NY for close to 30 years now.
I recently was called by a real estate agent asking me if we had anything that would eliminate pet odors from a house they were trying to sell. They had two prospective buyer back out on this particular house due to the strong pet odors in it. Apparently the previous owners of the house raised Golden Retrievers inside the house complete with indoor kennel and doggie day care business. After the house was completely emptied and professionally cleaned, the odor of dogs was still prominently present.
The real estate company had another company come in the house and install ozone for three days. The odors were diminished but not enough to sell. I told them about the Hydroxyl system and what it can do. The agent agreed to let me install the hydroxyl system. After 24 hours we inspected the home and found no evidence of odor or that a single dog even lived there let alone an entire kennel. The agent was so impressed he asked Allpro to meet with the other agents in his office to explain the system and how it can help real estate agents sell homes quicker. They are now the third real estate company that calls us on a regular basis to deodorize properties before open houses and showings.
We also used the hydroxyl system on a house where an elderly man had lived alone for many years before he died. This gentleman repaired engines in his living room which as you could imagine left a large amount of grease and oil stains on his flooring as well as oil and gas odors throughout his home. After we professionally cleaned his home the only way we could eliminate the gas smell that permeated into the wall cavities was with the Hydroxyl system.
Thanks to Odorox and the Hydroxyl system. We continued to be amazed at it's capabilities and effectiveness.

Please be advised that I found our meeting most informative and your demonstration of the Odorox unit in our hotel rooms to be truly remarkable. You could definitely notice the difference in the room before and after the demo. The unit performed easily and successfully. I would recommend the Odorox wholeheartedly.
