Sterilizing Surgical Instruments
Cleaning Surgical Instruments
Washers removed all organisms from the surgical instruments. Surgical instrument washers, using all-in-ONE enzyme detergent cleaners, cleaned all surfaces thoroughly, thereby providing the critical prerequisite for the sterilizing of surgical instruments.
Washers, perform pre-wash, ultrasonic optional, 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 washers provide adequate pre-rinsing, pre-cleaning, purified water rinsing, and that results in higher rejection rates of processed surgical instruments.

The proper sequence of treatments for cleaning surgical instruments prior to sterilization and the correct choice of time, temperature and the components used are necessary to render surgical instruments that are safe to handle, and have the prerequisite for sterilization. Surgical Instruments that were cleaned in surgical instrument washers using an all-in-ONE enzyme detergent cleaning concentrate, the evaluation of the washers confirmed that the efficacy of disinfection was 100%, and that all surgical instruments were sterile at the completion of the process.
Surgical Instrument Washers
The Washer was tested for its ability to remove pathological organism from surgical instruments. Kelly clamps, tweezers and scissors were placed on these plates of organism, taking care to ensure that all serrated edges were packed with the organisms. The instruments were then processed through the Washer.
All tubes tested at the end of washing showed no growth after 14 days of incubation. This washer removed all organisms from the surgical instruments.
Another evaluation of Washers confirmed that the efficacy of disinfection was 100%. In this study, L.P. Jette and N.G. Lambert used two test methods. One method was to test the effect of heat only within the disinfection process and the other test method was to test the efficacy of both heat and washing. Each method gave reproducible results and confirmed the efficacy of the Washer. Washers demonstrated the ability to completely remove pathological organisms with effective repeatability. The Washer sequence: cold water pre-wash, ultrasonic cleaning, detergent washing action, final rinses, and drying treatment will provide the prerequisite for sterilizing of medical devices.
