Cleaning/Disinfecting Recommendations for Transmitters,

Monitors, Modules & Cables

Warning:

Use only recommended cleaning solutions (listed below), or you may void the manufacturer’s warranty.

Harsh chemical agents degrade plastics and will compromise the safety of the device. Some germicidal and other harsh cleaning compounds are known to damage some plastics by weakening the structural integrity and compromising the electrical insulating properties.

Disconnect the equipment from the patient and the electrical supply before cleaning.

Do not allow liquid to enter the interior of the transmitter, module, or other monitoring equipment.

Do not use any transmitter or equipment that has been compromised by liquid ingress.

Do not immerse the equipment or cables in water or cleaning solutions.

Do not autoclave.

Do not allow any liquid to enter the case. An open battery compartment is not fluid resistant.

NOTE: Trapped liquids and surface residues provide an unintentional electrical path; noisy signals and false ASYSTOLE alarms can occur.

Caution:

Clean cable connectors carefully so that liquid is not permitted to collect around the electrical contacts or seep inside the connector.

Clean the transmitter case with the battery door closed. Fluids, including cleaning solutions, may damage the electrical components inside and cause the transmitter to malfunction.

Observed effects of liquid ingress in telemetry transmitters include delays in reporting SpO

2 and NIBP measurements and incorrect channel frequency programming on the 9134x 1400-

MHz transmitters.

To clean the exterior of monitors, modules, and cables:

•Prepare the cleaning solution according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

•Wet a clean cloth with the selected cleaning solution.

•Remove excess liquid from the cloth and squeeze damp.

•Wipe exposed surfaces of the equipment and cables.

•Remove any soap residue by gently wiping with a clean damp cloth.

•Wipe dry with a clean dry cloth.

Use only the following recommended cleaning solutions:

•Mild soap and water solution

•U.S. Pharmacopoeia (USP) green soap

•Sodium hypochlorite solution (1:10 dilution of household chlorine bleach in water)

•Phenolic germicidal detergent (1% aqueous solution)

•Glutaraldehyde (2.4%) (Cidex)

•Isopropyl alcohol (70% solution)

Note:

Over time, repeated use of a chlorine bleach solution may cause some colors to fade.

FYI:

Tape adhesive can be removed with Spacelabs Medical adhesive tape remover pads (P/N

392196-001).

Not recommended for use:

Cavicide and Quaternary Ammonia based products ARE NOT RECOMMENDED for cleaning monitors and cables.

These chemicals attack the plastics used in our monitors and cables and will cause serious safety hazards as the electrical insulating properties and structural integrity break down.

Virex, Virex 256, and

SaniCloth

and

SaniCloth-Plus

are common Quaternary Ammonia germicidal products. The OEMs of these solutions advertise that these germicides are safe to be used on hard non-porous surfaces, such as linoleum floors, Formica counter tops, and stainless steel. All discourage their use on computer-grade plastics and data, patient and power cables which are classified as porous materials.
