English term or phrase: aerosol-generating procedures
Definition from National Center for Biotechnology Info.:
An aerosol-generating procedure is defined as any medical procedure that can induce the production of aerosols of various sizes, including droplet nuclei.

Example sentence(s):
  • Standard and droplet precautions need to be applied to all patients with confirmed and suspected coronavirus infection. Airborne precautions should be added when performing aerosol generating procedures. Surveillance of health status of health care workers involved in provision of care needs to be maintained, and compliance with the infection control measures should be closely monitored. World Health Organization
  • N95 respirators or respirators that offer a higher level of protection should be used instead of a facemask when performing or present for an aerosol generating procedure (See Section 4). See appendix for respirator definition. Disposable respirators and facemasks should be removed and discarded after exiting the patient’s room or care area and closing the door unless implementing extended use or reuse. Perform hand hygiene after removing the respirator or facemask. CDC
  • On April 13, 2020, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) updated their guidance to indicate that aerosol generating procedures (AGPs) are medical procedures that are “more likely to generate higher concentrations of infectious respiratory aerosols than coughing, sneezing, talking, or breathing” and result in “uncontrolled respiratory secretions.” AGPs produce airborne particles (aerosols/droplets) that can lead to the spread of respiratory infections.

aerosolgenererende procedures

Definition from own experience or research:
Handelingen waarbij aerosolen kunnen vrijkomen.

Example sentence(s):
  • Persoon werkzaam in de gezondheidszorg, die directe klinische of persoonlijke zorg heeft verleend aan, of onderzoek heeft verricht bij een bevestigde, symptomatische casus, of in de nabijheid heeft verkeerd van een aerosolgenererende procedure en die op een van deze momenten geen adequate persoonlijke beschermingsmiddelen droeg. - RIVM  
  • Routinematige reiniging en desinfectie zijn passende maatregelen voor COVID-19 in zorginstellingen, inclusief in die zorgruimtes waar aerosolgenererende procedures worden uitgevoerd. Zorg ervoor dat u een goedgekeurd desinfecterend middel van de EPA-lijst gebruikt. - Ecolab  

Merk op dat de spelling met aë inmiddels verouderd is :)
Ook aerosolgenererende handelingen komt voor, maar de vertaling hierboven heeft als voordeel dat deze dezelfde afkorting heeft als in het Engels, en dus beter herkenbaar is.

Yes  Stieneke Hulshof: Je was me net voor;-) Deze term klopt inderdaad. De Federatie Medische Specialisten heeft er een leidraad aan gewijd en andere beroepsvereniging nemen deze term, of de afkorting (AGP) vaak over. Ook gebruikt zij de term 'Aerosol vormende handelingen'.
