What Will I Learn?
Bowie Dick Tests are a diagnostic test used to confirm the ability of a dynamic-air-removal steam sterilizer to remove air from the chamber and replace it with steam. Though there are two types of dynamic-air-removal sterilization processes, the Bowie Dick Tests pertain to vacuum assisted or prevacuum sterilizers only. This free CE eLearning course will review Bowie-Dick Test packs and discuss their design and proper use as part of your complete sterility assurance program.
The Objectives of this CE Course are to:
- Articulate the history of Bowie Dick Testing in Healthcare
- Classify the types of Bowie Dick Tests
