Cleaning procedures for our systems are quite easy. Everything from the TA boxes to the pulse sensors can be wiped down with disinfecting wipes. Make sure there is ample contact time for the wipe to do its job before the next person handles the system. Please do not use alcohol on any of our products.
If you choose to do the Spirometry labs, iWorx strongly recommends using individual bacterial/viral filters and disposable mouthpieces on the flow heads (Student Respiratory Kit). It consistently filters out more than 99.99% of bacteria and 99.99% of viruses. After each use, for more piece of mind, it is recommended that the flow head and tubing be cleaned as well (Cleaning the Flow Head). The flow head and tubing need to be thoroughly dry before the next use.
