Fleisch Flowhead P/N 61030 Cleaning Instructions  07321 Issue 6 7 Issue  Flowhead Cleaning Instructions Applicable to devices using Vitalograph Number 4 Fleisch Flowhead part number 61030 Including antecedent versions of the Pneumotrac, ALPHA, ALPHA Touch, COMPACT. Hygiene Policy Vitalograph spirometers are not designed to be, nor supplied as, sterile. Vitalograph intends that a new Bacterial Viral Filter (BVF) be used for every subject to prevent cross contamination. Using a BVF provides a significant level of protection of the subject, the device and the user against cross contamination during spirometry manoeuvres. The interior of a Vitalograph flowhead does not require decontamination where a new BVF is used for each subject. When used according to Vitalograph recommendations, Vitalograph spirometers are considered non-critical or low risk with regard to infection control. The exterior of the flowhead may be cleaned in line with local requirements for hand held objects2. If a higher level of decontamination is required, then cleaning may be followed by disinfection as outlined below.  Cleaning the Flowhead Exterior Recommended cleaning method where a new BVF is used for every subject:  Figure 1: Flowhead Complete + Flowhead Connection Tubing  1. Disconnect both ends of flowhead connection tubing from pressure tapping. 2. Use a 70% isopropyl alcohol impregnated cloth to clean the case exterior of the flowhead and the flowhead connection tubing.  3. Reassemble by reconnecting the flowhead connection tubing to pressure tappings on flowhead carrier and flowhead.  4. Vitalograph recommends that calibration verification be carried out following reassembly to verify  correct operation and accuracy. Instructions for calibration verification are contained in the device instructions for use.  2  Vitalograph (2019), “Hygiene Policy”. Internal Vitalograph policy. Document number: SOP_0523.
