A captain of a ship would never set sail without a deep understanding of the engine room. After all the engine room is the guts of the ship. Likewise, operating rooms are the economic engine room of the hospital and the most important part of the operating room endeavor is reprocessing of surgical instruments or repro.

In order to achieve an effective sterilization process, we should gain control on each one of the 3 parameters combined, in order to produce saturated steam. A controlled process will produce the exact percentage of saturation that will carry the heat unto the microbes. It is also important to maintain this control over time and over the entire sterilization volume, as we...
