extend their functional life
All instruments used in surgery, and even any instruments that have been laid out openly, must be considered contaminated and, without exception, subjected to hygienic reprocessing. As preparation for manual instrument reprocessing, coarse contaminants must first be removed with tissue paper or using a brush and water. If necessary, instruments should be disassembled. To prevent infection in case an injury occurs during the pre-cleaning, it is recommended to immerse the instruments in a disinfectant solution prior to the pre-cleaning. The instruments must be immersed completely and free of bubbles to ensure that all inner and outer surfaces are completely moistened. After the elapsed action time, instruments are removed from the solution and rinsed with water, checked for potential residues and dried with a single-use towel. (Source: RKI guidelines)
