sensors, et cetera) must be cleaned and disinfected before initial use and after each use to
protect patients and personnel from a variety of pathogens. Use soap and water, and a suggested
disinfectant and method, to clean and disinfect the accessories. The warranty does not cover
damage caused by unapproved substances or methods.
During the cleaning process, inspect the accessory for damage. The accessories are exposed to
potentially damaging situations during use and cleaning. Before each use, carefully inspect the
accessories for the following signs of damage:

pose a potential risk to patients and personnel. If you see any sign of damage to any
accessory, immediately discontinue use.
Single-use devices, as indicated on the device packaging, should be disposed of after use and
must never be reused. Reuse of single-use devices can result in spread of patient infection,
