This 60-minute webinar will feature Thomas Overbey, BS, CCSVP, Director of Marketing for Ultra Clean Systems. This multifaceted webinar is a reflection of you, the audience, who may work in various healthcare disciplines ranging from nursing to serving in the OR to sterile processing and infection control.
Surgical instruments can be complex devices and they continue to increase in complexity. In many cases, ultrasonic cleaning is indicated by the instructions for use (IFUs). As a result, there is confusion in the industry as to when the cleaning process actually begins and how ultrasonic cleaning is used correctly for maximum outcomes.
This visually informative webinar will provide a diverse yet cohesive set of information through still-frame animation and clear, easy-to-understand images to show how and why ultrasonic cavitation is so important.
1. Explain the significance of cleaning before, during and after ultrasonic cavitation. With the support of great visuals comes great understanding. Through still-frame animation and graphics, an enhanced knowledge to support the proper and effective use of ultrasonic cleaning will be visualized.
2. Provide clarity with the newly released da Vinci robotic IFUs and cover some of the dos and don’ts of instrument cleaning.
3. Discuss the new AAMI ST79 guidelines regarding point-of-use, ultrasonic cleaning, and cleaning verification.
