Process This Episode 51: 360 Degrees of Packaging Perspective: Uncharted Transport

Episode 51 is the final segment of the Last 100 Yards series and covers the oft-overlooked topic of external transport (this team of experts found a surprisingly limited set of standards and guidance when it came to moving trays between outside sources). Proposed general guidelines for optimal storage during sterile transport of processed instruments are discussed, including vehicle type, trays, packaging, and vibrations. Quality, patient safety, and bioburden concerns are also covered due to a lack of hard-and-fast rules.
