Abstract:  In March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a critical shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE), particularly N95 filtering facepiece respirators, in hospitals throughout the United States and abroad. As such the ability to disinfect and reuse disposable N95 respirators was urgently needed. Ultraviolet C (particularly 254 nm) radiation is known for its germicidal effects. It inactivates microorganisms by causing DNA damage and preventing replication. This presentation will outline one center’s experience in applying the fundamental concepts of photomedicine directly to the global crisis at hand, providing timely solutions to critical problems including shortages of PPE during this pandemic.
