The Effect of the Non-Thermal Plasma Needle on Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Bacteria

Abstract

The development in the field of medical physics has led to the use of devices that are manufactured under normal conditions to make tremendous progress in the world of development in medical treatment by using these devices with modern techniques by reducing the use of antibiotics and relying on these tools and devices that link between physics and modern therapeutic medicine. In this research, a non-thermal plasma system for argon gas operated at normal atmospheric pressure was designed, this system was applied on Pseudomonas Aeruginosa bacteria isolated from burn patients from Yarmouk Teaching Hospital. These bacteria were exposed to this system, the results showed that these bacteria were killed at time (5 min) and (8kV) where the argon gas flow rate was (5l/min).
