Protecting the Patient

Eliminating the need for reusable temperature probes with respiratory breathing circuits, Single-Use Temperature Probes reduce the risk of cross-contamination by disposing of the entire breathing circuit system, avoiding sterilisation failures.

According to the Department of Medicine:

“Invasive medical and surgical procedures have the potential to expose patients to pathogenic microbes and lead to infection. If not properly disinfected or sterilized, medical devices and surgical instruments used in invasive procedures may be the carrier of infectious organisms and may lead to infection. Failure to comply with disinfection and sterilization guidelines has contributed to outbreaks associated with contaminated medical devices and surgical instruments.”1

The World Health Organization (WHO) advocates additional precautions for specific modes of transmission and recommend the use of disposable (Single-Use) equipment.2

Clinician Efficiency

ingle-Use Temperature Probes increase workflow efficiencies by eliminating the need to clean and maintain sterilization procedures, saving time.

Hospital Costs

Reducing the amount of medical equipment that requires sterilization supports the resource base of central processing and eliminates the cost of lost product.
