Flexible video, Rhinoscope 11102 cmk. This brief video will focus on pre cleaning at the point of use followed by leak testing and manual reprocessing. The goal is to ensure consistent reprocessing preliminary cleaning directly after use water quality recommendation, utility water step one wipe the entire exterior of the flexible endoscope with a soft lint free cloth, moistened with water or with a diluted, mild or neutral ph enzymatic cleaning solution such as Enzo. This step is to remove gross debris from the exterior of the sea Moss video Rhino laryngoscope step two, inspect the vent port and the video pin connector area, removing any visible debris on the external surface with a 70% isopropyl alcohol wipe step three carefully place the flexible endoscope into a covered tray or container and transport the scope to the decontamination area. Ensure the scope is kept protected during transport to avoid damaging the shaft. Do not use pushing and pulling, movements do not use disinfectants for pre cleaning. These cause fixation of proteins and organic residues, leakage test water quality recommendation, utility water step one if present, remove the pressure compensation cap from the sea moss video Rhino laryngoscope. Step two, inspect the video connector and vent port. Confirm that the area is clean. If debris is present, carefully, remove the debris with a 70% isopropyl alcohol wipe step three, put on the cleaning cap for the video pin connector and ensure that it is securely in place. Fluid entering this area can cause damage to the sea moss video rhinoscope step four ensure that both the sea moss video rhinal lasco vent port and Carl storts leakage tester are completely dry before conducting the leak test. Step five, attach the Carl Stewart's leakage tester or automated leak tester using the adapter at the end of the tubing to the sea mas video rhinal laryngoscope vent port using a clockwise push and turn motion until it stops. Step six. Pump up the Carl Stortz leakage tester until a pressure of 200 millimeters. Mercury is reached fully articulate the distal tip five times in each direction using the control lever, then reduce the pressure by pressing the pressure release button until the pressure reaches 160 millimeters. Mercury note if using an automated leak tester set the leak tester pressure to 160 millimeters mercury and turn it on step seven while pressurized immerse the Sea Moss video Rhino laryngoscope in a sink or basin containing enough room temperature water without detergent to cover the entire device. The leak tester should be outside the basin or sink and should not be immersed ensure the Sea Moss. Video rhinal laryngoscope is completely submerged if surface bubbles are visible on the Sea Moss. Video Rhino laryngoscope after submerging, use a syringe filled with water to remove them. Step eight, keep the flexible sea moss. Video rhinal Laos cope submerged for one minute while fully deflecting the distal tip as follows place the distal tip in the neutral straight position and hold for 15 seconds, articulate the distal tip to the full up position and hold for 15 seconds, articulate the distal tip to the full down position and hold for 15 seconds place the distal tip in the neutral straight position again and hold for 15 seconds. Step nine. Observe for a formation of bubbles on the exterior of the Sea Moss. Video Rhino Laryngoscope or a stream of air bubbles. Step 10. If the Sea Moss video Rhino Laryngoscope has a leak as determined by a fall in pressure as seen on the Karl Storz leakage tester. Or if bubbles are discovered per the steps above immediately remove the sea Moss. Video Rhino larynges from the water, hold the pressure release button on the Carl Stortz leakage tester or turn off the automated leak tester to reduce the pressure to zero detach the leakage tester from the Sea Moss video Rhino Laryngoscope and refer to the endoscope. Return instructions for further instructions. Step 11. If the Sea Moss video Rhino laryngoscope does not leak, remove it from the water bath and press the pressure release button on the Carl Stortz leakage tester to release pressure to zero or follow the air pump manufacturer's instructions for releasing pressure from the CMOS video Rhino laryngoscope step 12. After the pressure drops to zero, detach the leakage tester or automated leak tester from the flexible video rhinoscope and proceed to manual reprocessing, manual reprocessing water quality recommendation, utility or critical water step one disinfect the sink or basin according to your health care facility's recommended method. After disinfecting rinse the sink or basin thoroughly with water, remove all of the disinfectant chemicals. Step two, prepare the diluted, mild or neutral ph enzymatic cleaning solution in the sink or basin. Step three, ensure the video cable is wiped with a lint free cloth soaked in cleaning solution. Step four, immerse the Sea Moss. Video Rhino laryngoscope completely in enzymatic cleaning solution. Step five. While the scope is immersed, use a soft lint free cloth to clean the exterior of the entire sea moss. Video Rhinal laryngoscope at least once if visible debris remains continue wiping until no debris is visible. Step six, use the soft flat cleaning brush to brush the exterior surfaces of the sea moss. Video Rhino Laryngoscope handle including the interface areas between the deflection lever and handle at least three times if visible debris remains, continue wiping until no debris is visible. Step seven, keep the sea moss. Video Rhino Laryngoscope immersed per the manufacturer's recommended contact time. Step eight. Remove the scope from the cleaning solution. Step nine, discard all disposable cleaning accessories and use new accessories for water rinsing water rinsing. Step one disinfect the sink or basin to be used for rinsing according to your health care facility's recommended method. Step two. After disinfecting rinse the sink or basin thoroughly with water to remove all of the disinfectant chemicals. Step three, fill the sink with room temperature water to ensure there is enough rinse water to completely immerse the scope. Step four, immerse the scope in the water. Step five, wipe the exterior of the entire scope thoroughly with a fresh soft limp free cloth at least once. Step six, discard the water and repeat steps two through five with fresh water for a minimum of two complete rinses drying, remove the scope from the water and dry the exterior with a fresh soft lint free cloth, discard all disposable cleaning accessories, inspection. Step one, the cleaned medical device must be visually inspected for cleanliness, completeness damage and dryness. If residues or contamination are still present, the medical device must be manually cleaned and subjected to a full cleaning procedure. Once more clean the distal lens with a cotton tip, applicator soaked in lens, cleaner or 70% Isopropyl alcohol. When cleaning, the distal lens always wipe with a circular movement. Step two damaged or corroded medical devices must be withdrawn from use. Inspect plastic parts for discoloration, porosity and flexibility. If the parts have changed substantially from their original condition, they must be replaced. This especially applies to seals and rubber caps. Step three. If there is still residual moisture on or in the endoscope, it must be dried again manually. The surface is to be dried completely. For example, plug connections with preferably sterile compressed air. And according to national regulations, step four, afterwards, a functional check must be carried out.
