Hydrogen peroxide is a weak acid, this substance consists of water and hydrogen. Due to its high oxidizing properties, H2O2 is a strong bleaching and disinfecting agent. This is due to the fact that upon contact of hydrogen peroxide with any surface starts quick reaction, in which the released oxygen free radicals. They damage cells and tissues protective coating bacteria so that pathogens are killed.
Depending on what you need to process, H2O2 is used in different concentrations. For preparation of working disinfectant used concentrated 35% solution of perhydrol. There are official instructions on the use of H2O2, which defines the required proportions.
In most cases used 3-6% solution of hydrogen peroxide. The exposure time required for destruction of pathogens, may be 30 to 180 minutes. Allowed to wipe, spray, immerse, soak the objects of sanitation in the working solution.
With the help of hydrogen peroxide can disinfect sanitary-technical equipment, including metal, plastic, rubber, plastic and glass; sterilizing surgical instruments and medical diagnostic instruments; to bleach and disinfect linen.
You soak it in 3% hydrogen peroxide for 40 minutes, after disinfection, to wash and rinse with running water for at least 5 minutes. Surfaces in premises, furniture, surfaces of instruments and apparatus should be wiped with a cloth soaked with working solution.
For preparation of working solution, take an enamel bowl no chips, dial 500 ml of warm (50-55oC with) drinking water, add the required quantity of perhydrol ( in accordance with instruction No. 858-70 from 29.08.1970) and bring the volume to 1 liter.
For sterilization of surgical instruments in the working solution was added 1.4 g anti-corrosive agent sodium oleate and 10 g of detergent "LOTOS" or its analogues.
The flow rate of the drug when wiping 200 ml/1 sq. m.; together with a detergent 100 ml/1 sq. m.; under irrigation from gidroperita 300 ml/1 sq. m. At the expiry of the specified time the surface must be washed with water and ventilate the area.
Dilution of concentrated perhydrol is important to avoid its contact with skin or ingested, it can be deadly. In the preparation of working solutions should wear protective clothing, goggles, household rubber gloves and a respirator.
