TEE Accessories and Supplies

TEE Accessories and Supplies
Each TEE transducer comes with disposable bite guards and a disposable tip protector. Bite
guards, TEE transducer covers, tip protectors, and disposable drapes are described here. For
information on ordering TEE accessories, see

Bite Guards

The M2203A bite guard strap contains natural rubber latex, which may cause allergic
reactions. For more information, see
Damage caused when patients bite or scrape a TEE transducer is not covered in the
transducer warranty or your service contract. Use bite guards to help prevent such accidents.
All patients must wear a bite guard during a TEE study. A bite guard prevents dangerous
transducer mechanical and electrical malfunctions caused by involuntary biting. Even
anesthetized patients require bite guards to prevent damage to their teeth and to the
transducer. Philips supplies disposable bite guards that are suitable for both awake and
anesthetized patients.

TEE Transducer Covers

Transducer covers often contain natural rubber latex and talc, which may cause allergic
reactions. For more information, see
Philips recommends the use of a market-approved transducer cover during every TEE study.
