Aerosol-Generating Procedures and Risk of Transmission of Acute Respiratory Infections: A Systematic Review

Tran, K., Cimon, K., Severn, M., et al. (2011). Aerosol-Generating Procedures and Risk of Transmission of Acute Respiratory Infections: A Systematic Review. Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health (CADTH).

The authors performed a literature review to assess evidence for the risk to health care workers of contracting an infectious disease from aerosol-generating procedures. They found the data to be limited, and describe the findings of each of the 10 included studies in detail. They note that aerosol-generating procedures do seem to increase the risk of infection for health care workers, but that good infection control and proper training of workers can limit disease spread.
