Transducer Care
This section contains information on cleaning, disinfecting, and sterilizing transducers that are
compatible with your ultrasound system.
For information on the gels that are safe to use with your system's transducers, see
"Ultrasound Transmission Gels" on page
184.
These instructions are intended to assist in effective cleaning, disinfection, and sterilization. In
addition, these instructions will help avoid damage, which could void your warranty, during
cleaning, disinfection, and sterilization.
Transducer Care Safety
Observe the following warnings and cautions when using disinfectants. More specific warnings
and cautions are included within the various procedures in this section and on the labels of the
cleaning or disinfection solutions.
WARNING
Disinfectants listed in this manual are recommended because of their chemical compatibility
with product materials, not their biological effectiveness. For the biological effectiveness of a
disinfectant, see the guidelines and recommendations of the disinfectant manufacturer, the
U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.
WARNING
The level of disinfection required for a device is dictated by the type of tissue it will contact
during use. Ensure the disinfectant type is appropriate for the type of transducer and the
transducer application. For information on the levels of disinfection requirements, see
"Choosing the Correct Transducer-Care Method" on page
257. Also, see the disinfectant label
instructions and the recommendations of the Association for Professionals in Infection
Control, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.
