It is seen to affect the individuals with low immunity who come in contact with fungal spores in their environment.
Manufacturers of Oxygen Concentrators e.g. Phillips, recommend guidelines to prevent respiratory infections. Some of the important recommendations are,
Many bacteria and fungi are known to grow even in the low nutrient distilled water when stored for longer periods. During storage the distilled water gets exposed to the external environment such as sunlight, dust particles, contaminants etc. Contaminants may also leach in the water through the plastic containers used for storage. Over a period of time, there is all probability that microbial growth occurs inside the storage containers contaminating the water, which often remains unnoticed.
For critical applications such as medical use, the best and the safest practice would be to use freshly made distilled water collected in glass containers.
Experts are saying maintaining hygiene and cleanliness at the hospitals, ICU units is required to have a control over the spread of Black Fungus –
“We must educate healthcare workers, paramedics and ICU technicians to frequently change the flowmeter’s water and sterilize oxygen tubing, most importantly only distilled water is used”
