Clostridium difficile (C. Diff) and Hyperbaric Chambers

Clostridium difficile or C-Diff for short is one tough bug and is one that is difficult to eliminate with current approved acrylic disinfectants. Using a disinfectant that the chamber manufacturer does not recommend could cause you to void the chambers warranty but not addressing C-Diff in the chamber is a patient safety issue. I have several links that discuss c-diff and hyperbaric chambers below. Hopefully these links are helpful.
