Appropriate decontamination of hospital textiles depends heavily on specifically defined proceedings for handling decontaminated hospital textiles (collection, segregation, packing, transportation) and appropriate disinfection in the laundry process. It is becoming increasingly common to disinfect hospital textiles in a chemical-thermal process. Disinfectants used in this process should be applied according to functional parameters defined in validated and repeatable test methods. Changes in

). Many investigations have confirmed the positive effect of the plasma on the anticancer therapy (Kim et al. 2009; Vandamme et al. 2010), disinfection of skin wounds (Isbary et al. 2010; Lademann et al. 2011), surgical instruments and materials in contact with food (Boudam and Moisan 2010; Dasan et al. 2017b), purification of air, water, wastewater, and sewage, as well as preservation and decontamination of food (Gallagher et al. 2007; Korachi et al. 2009; Pawłat 2013; Chizoba Ekezie et al. 2017

patients are a known reservoir for respiratory pathogens4; therefore, once loaded, we deemed all exposed surfaces within the cabin as a potential fomite risk. We found this gross simplification vital in order to deliver a practical solution.
An aircraft requires significant preparation in order to minimise potential contamination during missions. A pre-flight checklist is necessary to verify and minimise deviation from a set standard5 to ensure full decontamination is

for 30 minutes.
Samples were collected under aseptic conditions from bronchoscopes following clinical procedures and after usual decontamination procedures by flushing thoroughly with 10 ml of sterilized phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) and shaking for 30 seconds, as described previously (Jørgensen et al. 2016). Collected samples were put in cool boxes with ice packs (4–8°C) upon collection and transported within 4 hours to the laboratory.
All samples (100 µl) were plated on Mueller-Hinton agar

evidence to suggest that specimens should only be collected when infection or ventriculitis is suspected to minimise the interruption of the closed system. Different practices have been identified related to the frequency of sampling, the best solution for decontamination of the sampling site/port and preferable port for obtaining the specimen. Our aim was to complete an integrative literature review. Medline Complete and CINAHL were searched and articles were screened. Nine articles were used to form
