Abstract:

Blue Bulb Syringes (BBSs) are multi-use devices for clearing oronasal secretions in neonates and children. BBSs are known to harbor pathogenic bacteria; effective methods for disinfection are critical to prevent possible transmission of disease. This pilot experimental study identified three low-cost, widely-available antiseptics for killing bacterial growth in a BBS.
