Educational webinar watch 'On Demand'
The Nanosonics sponsored educational webinar was a huge success.
Recent research and regulator alerts in ultrasound reprocessing have shown increased infection risk from improperly reprocessed semi-critical and critical ultrasound probes. Ultrasound reprocessing challenges include difficult to kill organisms like HPV, probe cover leakage and ultrasound probe handle disinfection. The expansion of semi-critical and critical ultrasound probe use throughout hospital departments in a growing number of procedures highlights the importance of proper probe reprocessing to ensure patient safety.
- Review current ultrasound reprocessing guidelines in Canada and their clinical application
- Understand the risks associated with inadequate infection control practices in ultrasound
- Gain awareness of new research, global trends in ultrasound probe reprocessing
- Identify the practical considerations for implementation of ultrasound reprocessing workflows
