These lil😎guys are called SonoChecks😷🏥💚
🧐🤷🏻♂️😂We use them to test our surgery decontamination sonic cavitation machine. Post surgery, we must clean 😷 ⚒🔧⛏🔪⛏complex surgical instruments. First☝🏼must test our equipment!
It is invisible to the human eye, but with the SonoCheck😷you can #test for the #presence of #cavitation #energy - the cleaning power - of the 🏥 ultra-sonic cleaner. #Ultrasonic cleaning is a result of sound waves introduced into a cleaning liquid by a series of transducers. The #sound #travels #throughout the tank and #creates #waves of #compression and #expansion. During the expansion wave, #molecules of the #liquid are pulled dramatically, ripping them apart. This #creates #microscopic #vacuum #cavities. As the pressure around these cavities becomes greater, they collapse violently, forming voids - a process called #cavitation. This creates extreme temperature and combines with the velocity of the liquid jet to deliver a very intense cleaning action in a minute area. When the ultrasonic cleaner is supplying sufficient energy and conditions are correct, SonoCheck😷will change color. Problems such as insufficient energy, overloading, water level, improper temperature and degassing will increase the time needed for the color change. In the case of major problems the SonoCheck😷will not change color at all. Call your biomedical department for investigation. 😷🏥 #ps test daily rather than weekly. State surveyors love that! Helps minimize the amount of days you will have to “recall” for patient safety and investigate. One-week recall of hundreds of surgical instrument trays vs 24-h amount of trays processed since last passing acceptable sonic test.
