Ultrasound system


Cleaning the System
To clean the ultrasound system, use a clean gauze pad or lint-free cloth, lightly
moistened with a mild detergent, to wipe the surface of the ultrasound system to ensure
areas are free of gel and any other visible residue.
▪ Gently wipe the glass surfaces, for example, the touch screen and monitor.
▪ Take particular care to clean the areas near the trackball, touchpad, soft keys, rotary
knobs, and the slide controls.
▪ Ensure that fluids do not seep into any openings on the ultrasound system, for
example, the seams on the control panel, the keyboard, or a DVD slot.
Disinfecting the System
To disinfect the ultrasound system, use an approved disinfectant wipe to disinfect the
ultrasound system and accessories. Follow the disinfectant manufacturer's instructions.
