Process and equipment in sterilization. *We prep all implants used in any given procedure by placing them under running water for about 30sec. *Then we presoak all implants in a chemical bath until the tools are ready to be placed inside the hydrim. Tool preparation and presoak.
*We prep all implants used in any given procedure by placing them under running water for about 30sec.
*Then we presoak all implants in a chemical bath until the tools are ready to be placed inside the hydrim.
*After the first two steps of tool processing, the hydrum can be useful for the following :
*It eliminates the potential dangers and disaster which can arise in tool scrubbing.
*It cuts down a large amount of time the operator must be in contact with any potential biohazard
*The Hydim also has a dry cycle which ensures your tools are clean and dry before being bagged and sterilized.
*What are the differences in gravity displacement autoclaves.
*Such as Type N, Type S, and positive displacement.
*What are the benefit and drawbacks?
*These autoclave our the most commonly used in the tattoo and piercing community.
*The name refers to the way air is removed from the chamber.
*This design of autoclave generally has a heating element in the bottom of the autoclave chamber, along with a fill hole that transfers water from a reservoir to the autoclave chamber.
*The benefit of this type of autoclave is it's simplicity along with being very cost effective.
*The positive pressure displacement autoclave improves on the design of a gravity displacement autoclave by creating the steam in a separate internal unit or "steam generator”
*The steam needed to displace air builds in a separate chamber which opens the check valve and a pressurized burst of steam enters the autoclave chamber, this resulting in a higher percentage of air from the chamber which decreases autoclave cycle times.
*Drawbacks high initial cost and a smaller chamber or cassette
*The negative pressure displacement unit is able to achieve a highest "Sterility Assurance Level" (SAL)
*The main difference in this type of autoclave: is when the chamber is closed a vacuum pump removes all the air form the chamber and then the pressurized steam is injected into the chamber.
*These also have filtered dry cycles which allows for the packages to completely dry before entering ambient air.
*Drawbacks size of unit and high initial cost
