The catheter is at risk of having been in close contact with breaks in skin or mucous membrane, which means it poses a high risk of pathogen transmission. It is therefore manufactured to be disposable. The mesh filter is also manufactured to be disposable. All other parts of the Emergency Aspirator pose an intermediate transmission risk and should be disinfected according to guidelines given below.
