To use CareFusion Surgical Clippers:  Using CareFusion Surgical Clippers  Remember: •  Wet clip whenever possible to help prevent airborne skin cells and loose hair dispersal, which can contaminate the wound site.  •  Hold the skin taut with one hand while clipping with the other, ensuring a smooth surface for clipping. This technique is especially important when clipping loose skin areas. Avoid skin tags and other inconsistencies with the skin’s surface.  •  Always rest the base of the clipping blade flat on the patient’s skin. Do not change the angle or “toe in” the blade in an attempt to get a closer clip.  •  Maintain a consistent grip on the clipper handle. Go over the area thoroughly on the first attempt to ensure clipping accuracy and precision.  •  Always move the clippers away from your body with a gentle push. Do not pull the clippers toward you across the patient’s skin, and never apply greater force than needed.  1. Attach the blade With gloves on position a new blade on the top of the clipper head. Align the mark on the clipper blade to the arrow. Slide the blade toward the dot to secure it in place until you hear a click.  2. Clip the hair Hold the clipper using a pencil grip or natural overhand grip with the CareFusion logo facing up. Stretch the skin, rest the clipping blade flat on the skin and clip against the grain of the hair.  3. Remove the blade Turn the clipper off, position the clipper blade facing downward over a sharps trash receptacle and use your thumb to push the blade forward along the blade frame.  4. Clean the clipper handle Wash the clipper handle thoroughly with soap and water, and then wipe the device with surface disinfectant or soak the handle in an antimicrobial agent for no more than 30 minutes.*  Ordering information Cat. no.
