Bipolar Coag. Forceps with U-Shaped Spring Handle Instructions for Use

1 Page

Caution Please read all information contained in this insert. Incorrect handling and care as well as misuse can lead to premature wear of surgical instruments. Intended Use The Bipolar Coagulation Forceps with U-shaped handle is intended for use in minimally invasive and especially laparoscopic surgical procedures. The device is to be passed through a 5.5 mm laparoscopic cannula. Coagulation is achieved using electrosurgical energy under laparoscopic visualisation. This device is intended to be used with the outputs of compatible electrosurgical generators such as Erbe, Martin, Berchtold, Codman, Valleylab and comparable generators.  ENGLISH  BIPOLAR COAG. FORCEPS WITH U-SHAPED SPRING HANDLE  The instrument is designed to manipulate, grasp or cut selected tissue. It must be connected to the bipolar output of an electrosurgical generator. As indicated bipolar coagulation current may be selectively applied to the tissue. The maximum output voltage of the generator must not exceed 500 Vp. Suitable Cables: Bissinger Bipolar Cable Art. No 801 00xxx. Caution: Bipolar coagulation instruments should be used only by individuals who are trained and licensed to use such devices.  Examples of such training and experience include: Training through qualified residency program, surgical skills workshops, training programs offered by equipment manufacturers or preceptorship/surgical assistant training.

It is very important to check each surgical instrument for visible damage and wear, such as cracks, breaks or insulation defects before each use. In particular, areas such as blades, tips, notches, locking and blocking devices as well as all mobile parts, insulations and ceramic elements have to be checked carefully. Never use damaged instruments. Never use the instruments in the presence of flammable or explosive substances. The instrument may not be laid down on the patient. Coagulation should only be performed if the contact surfaces are visible. Do not touch any other metallic instruments during coagulation. Assembly and Operation The instrument cannot be disassembled. Once correctly connected to power, the device may be used in either the right or the left hand. To close jaws: release (grip) handle. To open jaws: compress (grip) handle. Coagulation current is activated by a footswitch that is part of your electrosurgical unit. Reprocessing Due to the product design, the raw materials used and the intended purpose it is not possible to determine a precise limit with regard to the maximum possible number of reprocessing cycles. The serviceable life of the instruments is determined by their function as well as by a careful handling. Instruments for electrosurgery are by nature subject to increased wear depending on the type and time of use.  Preparation and transport Remove coarse dirt from the instruments immediately after each use. Do not use fixation agents or hot water (>40°C/104°F) as this may result in the fixation of residues and could reduce the cleaning success. Storage and transport of the instruments to the reprocessing location must be ensured in a sealed container to avoid any damage to the instruments and any contamination of the environment. Manual Pre-Cleaning Immerse the instrument in cold water for 5 minutes. Brush the instruments under cold water until all visible impurities are removed. All internal cavities, threats and holes must be flushed with the water pistol for 10 seconds and then rinsed and brushed again. Ultrasonic Pre-Cleaning The instrument must be inserted in an ultrasonic bath with 0.5% alkaline cleaning detergent. Ultrasound must be applied for 15 minutes at 40°C/104°F. Machine reprocessing Cleaning Place the instruments in a basket on the insert module or on the inserts of the MIS module and start the cleaning process. Connect the luer connector of the cleaning channel to the respective connector of your washing machine. 1. Prerinse for 1 min. with cold water 2. Discharging 3. Prerinse for 3 min. with cold water 4. Discharging 5. Wash for 5 min. at 55°C/131°F with a 0.5% alkaline or at 45°C/113°F with an enzymatic cleaning agent. 6. Discharging 7. Neutralise for 3 min. with warm tap water (>40°C/104°F) and a neutralising agent. 8. Discharging 9. Rinse 2 min. with warm tap water (>40°C/104°F). 10. Discharging Disinfection Machine operated thermal disinfection has to be carried out in consideration of the national requirements with regard to the A0 value (see ISO 15883). Drying Dry the outside of the instruments by carrying out a drying cycle of the cleaning/disinfection machine. If necessary, manual drying may additionally be carried out using a lint free cloth. Dry all cavities of the instruments by blowing with sterile compressed air. Manual reprocessing Cleaning Prepare a cleaning bath according to the manufacturer's instructions. 1. Rinse products with cold tap water (<40°C/104°F) until all visible accumulations of dirt have been removed. Remove stuck dirt by using a soft brush. 2. Place products in the prepared cleaning bath so that they are completely submersed. Observe residence time according to the manufacturer's instructions. 3. Clean the instrument in the bath manually using a soft brush. All surfaces have to be brushed several times. 4. The following steps only apply to channels and the insides of tubes: The brush has to be pushed in and out of the tubes at least  six times. Rinse the tubes with distilled water and repeat the procedure. 5. Rinse the products thoroughly with running tap water to remove the cleaning agents without residue. Disinfection Prepare a disinfectant bath according to the instructions of the disinfectant manufacturer. Place the instruments in the disinfectant bath and observe the specified residence time. Rinse the products thoroughly with fully demineralised water to remove the disinfectant without residue. Drying Manual drying is carried out using a lintfree cloth and, in particular, for drying cavities and channels, sterile compressed air. Functional test and packaging Perform visual inspection for cleanliness; if required, perform an assembly and functional test according to the operating instructions. If necessary, repeat the reprocessing process until the instrument is optically clean. Packaging has to comply with ISO 11607 and EN 868 standards for packaging for sterilised instruments. Sterilisation Sterilisation of the products with fractional prevacuum procedure (in accordance with ISO 13060 / ISO 17665) in consideration of the respective national requirements. - 3 pre-vacuum phases, pressure at least 60 mbar - Heating up to a sterilisation temperature of min. 132°C/270°F and max. 137°C/278°F - Shortest exposure time: 3 min. - Drying time: at least 10 min. Storage Sterilised instruments have to be stored in a dry, clean and dust-free area at moderate temperatures from 5°C to 40°C. Repairs Never attempt to perform repairs yourself. Service and repair work may only be performed by persons qualified and trained accordingly. For any question on these matters, please contact either the manufacturer or your medical-technical department. Attention: Defect products must pass the complete reprocessing process before being returned for repair. Handling During transport, cleaning, care, sterilisation and storage, all surgical instruments should be handled with maximum care. This applies particularly to blades, fine tips and other sensitive areas.
