Summary: Properly Designed Surgical Instrument Washers clean all surfaces thoroughly, thereby providing the critical prerequisite for the safe handling, disinfecting, and the sterilizing of surgical instruments. Critical cleaners, usually referred to as Washer Decontaminators Washer Disinfectors, perform pre-wash, ultrasonic, detergent washing, purified water elevated temperature rinsing, lubrication and high temperature drying in such a manner as to provide thoroughly clean, stain free and lubricated medical devices. Surgical Instruments cannot be sterilized (be sterile) unless all exposed surfaces are properly cleaned, prior to sterilization, to remove soil (debris, bioburden) and properly rinsed to prevent staining.Not all Washer Decontaminators Washer Disinfectors provide adequate pre-rinsing, pre-cleaning, purified water rinsing, and thereby render higher rejection rates of processed surgical instruments.

Proper Surgical Instrument Washer Design Secures Performance Surgical Instrument Washers using an Ultrasonic Cleaner Solution The proper sequence of treatment and the correct choice of time, temperature and the components used are necessary to render surgical instruments that are critically clean, safe to handle, and have the prerequisite for sterilization. Surgical Instrument Washer Disinfectors employ a cold water pre-wash to remove gross debris.  This removes proteins and lipids, preventing them from being baked onto devices during the high temperature treatments to follow. Then, the ultrasonic process creates millions of micro implosions to loosen and free debris from lock boxes, hinge pins, serrations and other difficult-to-access surface areas.

The Washer Decontaminators Washer Disinfectors detergent wash then applies high flow low pressure water with a cleaning concentrate (at ~ 135 degrees F) in such a manner as to evenly reach all areas of the load and strip bioburden from the surgical instruments.  The elevated temperature (at ~ 194 to 209 degrees F) purified water final rinse secures the biocidal process, removes mineral deposits from prior cycles and lubricates the instruments. The high temperature (at ~ 158 to 230 degrees F) dry cycle presents heated, forced air which dries each device.  The critical cleaned medical devices are now clean, safe to handle, have the prerequisite for sterilization, and are properly prepared for further reprocessing.

Kelly clamps, tweezers and scissors wee placed on these plates of organism, taking care to ensure that all serrated edges were packed with all the organisms.  Each contaminated instrument was then dipped into the tube of Thiogycolate medium before being placed in all the washer baskets.  The instruments were then processed through the complete Washer Decontaminator Washer Disinfector cycle.  At the end of the drying cycle, the instruments were allowed to cool and then dipped into another tube of Thioglycolate medium. Surgical Instrument Washer Results: All tubes of the Thioglycoate medium tested before the wash grew the appropriate organism within six to 18 ours after testing.  All tubes tested at the end of the wash showed no growth after 14 days of incubation. This Washer Decontaminator Washer Disinfector removed all organisms from the instruments. Surgical Instrument Washers with an integrated Ultrasonic surgical Instrument Cleaner Solution Washer Decontaminator Washer Disinfector Efficacy of Disinfection 100%. Another evaluation of Washer Decontaminators Washer Disinfectors confirmed that the efficacy of disinfection was 100%.  In this study, L.P. Jette and N.G. Lambert used two test methods. One method (N) was to test the effect of heat only within the disinfection process and the other test method (G) was to test the efficacy of both heat and washing.  Each method gave reproducible results and confirmed the efficacy of the Washer Decontaminator Washer Disinfector.
