STERILISATION PROCEDURE

METHOD 1 (ETO)

CLEANING

Probes must be cleaned to remove contaminating substances prior to sterilization. After each use, perform initial cleaning within the sterile field by wiping the probe free of blood and body fluids. Then, pass the probe out of the field. Disconnect the probe (and any adaptor) from the Doppler unit, clean the probe tip and housing thoroughly with a mild soapy solution, a soft cloth with an enzymatic cleaning solution, or an alcohol-based wipe. If using an enzymatic cleaning solution, wipe the probe again using mild soapy water or an alcohol-based wipe. Do not soak. Complete preparation for sterilization in accordance to hospital procedure using an approved probe cleaning agent.

STERILIZATION 80%

It is recommended that the intraoperative and laparoscopic probes be gas sterilized before each use with ethylene oxide (ETO) gas. The suggested mixture ratio is ETO gas – 20%, CO2 gas – 80%. Exposure time should not be less than 1 hour and 45 minutes at a pressure of 0.75 to 0.8Kg/cm2 and a temperature of 50° to 60° C. To achieve a Sterility Assurance level (SAL) of 10-6 (the recommended minimum for direct contact with blood), an exposure time of 3 hours and 30 minutes is necessary. A biological indicator strip should be placed in the load to verify the effectiveness of the cycle selected.

WARNING

Do not sterilize the Doppler probes listed above by steam autoclaving. Steam sterilization is likely to damage the plastic probe tip and piezo-electric crystals. Utilize Koven/Hadeco probe number ACP-08 for steam autoclaving. Do not use an automatic washer/disinfector. Temperatures will cause probe electronics to melt.

AERATION

Follow hospital requirements with regard to aeration time to allow residual ETO gas to dissipate. The minimum recommended aeration time is 8 hours at 60° C, 40% to 60% humidity with an air change (ventilation) frequency of 25 times per hour. Note: aeration time should meet institution and FDA guidelines.

COUPLING FOR INTRAOPERATIVE AND LAPAROSCOPIC USE

During the examination, fluid coupling must be maintained for proper signal reception. If needed, irrigate the incision or laparoscopic portal with sterile saline to insure adequate coupling. Use of sterile gel is acceptable in all areas except the brain.

CONTRAINDICATIONS: Hospital policy takes precedence over this protocol.

Failure to use approved cleaning & sterilization procedures may void the warranty

METHOD 2 (STERRAD)

CLEANING

Probes must be cleaned to remove contaminating substances prior to sterilization. After each use, perform initial cleaning within the sterile field by wiping the probe free of blood and body fluids. Then, pass the probe out of the field. Disconnect the probe (and any adaptor) from the Doppler unit, clean the probe tip and housing thoroughly with a mild soapy solution, a soft cloth with an enzymatic cleaning solution, or an alcohol-based wipe. If using an enzymatic cleaning solution, wipe the probe again using mild soapy water or an alcohol-based wipe. Do not soak. Complete preparation for sterilization in accordance to hospital procedure using an approved probe cleaning agent.

STERRAD STERILIZATION SYSTEM GUIDELINES

The probes listed above may be sterilized with the Sterrad 100S, Sterrad 200, Sterrad NX and/or Sterrad 100NX (where indicated) sterilization systems (see charts above). The general processing instructions in the “Sterrad 100S, Sterrad 200, Sterrad NX and/or Sterrad 100NX Sterilization System Operator’s Manual(s)” should be followed. Probes must be cleaned to remove contaminating substances prior to sterilization. After each use, perform initial cleaning within the sterile field by wiping the probe free of blood and body fluids.

STERILIZATION

Per recommended Sterrad 100S, Sterrad 200, Sterrad NX and/or Sterrad 100NX procedures using a Sterrad brand or Sterrad compatible trays.

WARNING

Sterilize according to instructions for the Sterrad 100S, Sterrad 200, Sterrad NX, and/or Sterrad 100NX Model(s). Do not sterilize the Doppler probes listed above by steam autoclaving. Steam sterilization is likely to damage the plastic probe tip and piezo-electric crystals. Utilize Koven/Hadeco probe number ACP-8 for steam autoclaving. Do not soak or submerge the probe in liquid. Do not use Cidex. Do not use an automatic washer/disinfector. Temperatures will cause probe electronics to melt.

Failure to use approved cleaning & sterilization procedures may void the warranty.
