Cleaning & Storage Procedures
With schools and universities getting ready to leave for semester, it is very important that procedures are in place for making sure your equipment is clean and properly stored.
We recommend storing your equipment in the kit box or in drawers with a foam mat insert to protect the transducers.
Cleaning procedures for the iWorx systems are quite easy. Everything from the TA boxes to the pulse sensors and event markers 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.
When doing the Spirometry labs this Spring, iWorx strongly recommends using individual bacterial/viral filters and disposable mouthpieces on the flow heads (Student Respiratory Kit). Independent laboratory tests have verified that the pulmonary function filter is highly effective.
It consistently filters out more than 99.999% of bacteria and 99.99% of viruses. After each use, for more peace 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.
For the Metabolic Cart, the tubing and mixing chamber, which are only exposed to expired air, can be cleaned with hot, soapy water using an antibacterial dish washing liquid. The mask and non-rebreathing valve should be cleaned using these directions Cleaning the Mask which come directly from the manufacturer. The 3L calibration syringe can be cleaned with disinfecting wipes.
