If you are planning a medical volunteer trip to Uganda, Nepal, Peru, Costa Rica, or another location, then you may be asked to assist physicians in sterile environments. These environments include surgical operating rooms and spaces where bacteria infection risks are extremely high. To help reduce some of these risks, sterilization is required. There are a wide variety of tools and methods used to sterilize equipment as well as spaces. Steam sterilization is utilized most often with the help of operating room sterilizers.
