Table 1 Arithmetic mean bioaerosol concentrations and standard deviations of colony forming units sampled from hospital bathrooms each condition representing 10 sampling trials

From: Bioaerosol concentrations generated from toilet flushing in a hospital-based patient care setting

Toilet Conditions Mean Bioaerosol Conc. (St. Dev.), CFU/m3)
No Waste No Flush 210 (136)a
No Waste With Flush 240 (132)
Fecal Waste With Flush 278 (149)a
