Care and Sterilization

  • Brand new surgical instruments must be cleaned before the first sterilization.
  • Hemostats Forceps must be cleaned in the open state.
  • Before sterilization, when compiling the operation baskets the grid lock/ratchet should be closed only in first gear. This will avoid that the instruments during sterilization (temperature increases to 134 °C) are under tension and stress fractures occur in the conclusion.
  • Handover of instruments during operation will be improved.
  • Sterilization is not a substitute for cleanliness!
