Complete Reprocessing Solution

TD 100 requires only 7 simple steps to complete high level disinfection of your TEE probe.

Guidelines & Recommendations

CDC
“ …because condoms/probe covers can fail, the [semi-critical ultrasound] probe also should be high level disinfected.” 1

AIUM
“ All internal transducers (e.g., vaginal, rectal, and transesophageal transducers) as well as intraoperative transducers require high level disinfection before they can be used on another patient.” “Because of the potential disruption of the barrier sheath, high level disinfection with chemical agents is necessary.” 2

FDA
“ Semi-critical devices…sterilize these devices between uses whenever feasible, but high level disinfection is minimally acceptable.”

AAMI
“ Semi-critical devices should be sterilized, if possible. However, if sterilization is not feasible, the, device, at a minimum, must be subjected to a high level disinfection process…” 3

IAC
“...the structural and electrical integrity of the transducer must be checked between each use using an ultrasound transducer leakage tester.”5

AORN
“ …A new recommendation for high-level disinfection or sterilization of endocavity ultrasound probes highlights the risk for probe contamination with lower levels of disinfection, even when a sheath or cover is used. ” 4
