Vitalograph HYGIENE & CLEANING OF THE VITALOGRAPH 2120 GENERAL RECOMMENDATION To reduce the risk of cross infection the use of SafeTway mouthpieces for expiratory only testing, or Bacterial Viral Filters for Inspiratory/Expiratory testing, is recommended. A Risk Assessment should be carried out to assess the risks presented to both operator and subject, and an action plan devised by the facility to minimise the chance of cross infection occurring, particularly where known-infectious or immuno-deficient subjects are being tested. An assessment should be made of methods of decontamination available to the operator, and their effectiveness against potential risks - a table of materials used is provided below to assist in this. It is recommended that in cases of high risk with no effective disinfection methods available, that the contaminated parts are disposed of. For this device, the FLOWHEAD COMPLETE. ROUTINE PRACTICE A new mouthpiece (either SafeTway or Bacterial Viral Filter) should be used for each subject. A delay of at least 5 minutes should be allowed between subjects to allow settling of previously aerosolised particles in the measuring device. It is recommended that the Flowhead Assembly be regularly cleaned according to the guidelines of the user’s facility. In the event of visible contamination to the FLOWHEAD CONES or FLOWHEAD ELEMENT - these should be cleaned and disinfected. The FLOW CONDITIONING MESHES should be replaced regularly. The frequency of this is dependent on the Facilities’ Risk Assessment, usage, and test environment, but should be at least monthly or every 100 subjects (500 blows). They should also be replaced in the event of damage, or if visibly contaminated. It is recommended to replace the complete Flowhead Assembly: FLOWHEAD COMPLETE at least annually. In mass screening a spare flowhead should be available and the flowhead removed for cleaning and disinfection every 50 patients, or immediately if contamination is suspected. All external and flowhead parts require cleaning, i.e. the removal of visible particulate contamination. The parts that make up the flowhead also require disinfecting.
