In-Service: SurgiSonic® 1211X Tubular Surgical Instrument Cleaning Machine

 

The SurgiSonic® 1211X surgical instrument cleaning machine combines ultrasonic action/suction/and filtration  to individually clean up to six submersible non-robotic tubular surgical instruments,  or three submersible *da Vinci® robotic instruments, inside and out. A basket is included for cleaning loose instruments in a separate cycle.

PART I: SurgiSonic® 1211X Identification of Components and Setting Up the Machine

 

The SurgiSonic® 1211X is easy to set up, easy to use, and easy to maintain.

 

 

 

The ultrasonic tank is sitting on a shelf that is attached to the suction pump housing. NOTE: Rinse all instruments under running water before and after cleaning and rinsing them in the SurgiSonic® 1211X. 1) Attach drain tubing: Reach inside the hole on the left side of the machine and pull out the drain tubing. Attach tubing to drain valve and place open end into a sink. Point handle down to close valve. 2) Plug in machine: Reach inside the hole on the right side of the machine and carefully pull out the electric cord that is attached to the timer dial and insert the plug-end into a 110/120 VAC wall outlet. 3) Fill ultrasonic tank: Fill ultrasonic tank with 5 gallons of warm, 115⁰, water. 4) Add enzyme cleaner: Add 5 ounces of pH neutral SurgiSoak® enzyme cleaner to the ultrasonic bath water. NOTE: NEVER run ultrasonic tank without 5 gallons of water in the tank and a lid placed on top of it. NOTE: NEVER hang suction chambers, empty or engaged, outside of tank while pumps are on. NOTE: NEVER use any type of caustic/corrosive/or coagulating substances in, or on, the SurgiSonic®.
The SurgiSonic® comes with six individual, inline, #3312 SurgiSuction® suction chambers, filters, suction pumps, and fluid return tubes already attached to the pump housing unit. The three in-line suction chambers and filters on the left side are individually attached to pumps #1, #2, and #3. The three in-line suction chambers and filters on the right side are individually attached to pumps #4, #5, and #6.

CONTROLS FOR RUNNING THE MACHINE ARE LOCATED ON THE FRONT OF THE PUMP HOUSING:

 

On the front of the pump housing there is a circuit breaker, a timer dial, and a pump cleaning cycle switch.

 

5) Pump switch: The small metal switch to the right of the timer dial controls the suction pump speed.

●The NORMAL, up, pump switch position is used to clean most instruments.

●The OFF, middle, pump switch position turns off the pumps.

●The FAST, down, pump switch position is used for a quicker cleaning time or higher suction power   to clean older, clogged, tubular instruments.

NOTE: Set the suction pump cleaning speed BEFORE turning on the timer dial.

NOTE: NEVER change pump speed while machine is on.

6) Timer dial: The timer dial turns on the machine for up to 30 minutes.

NOTE: NEVER turn timer dial past 30 minutes; if turned past 30 minutes the timer dial will break.

PART IV:  SurgiSonic® 1211X For Cleaning da Vinci® Robotic Tubular Instruments

Patented Cleaning Process – Independently Tested for Cleaning Effectiveness; exceeded AAMI TIR 30.

Because a tight seal separates the jaw/pulley end from the shaft/control box end, Geddis, Inc. has developed a patented dual hook-up method for independently cleaning both the distal and the proximal segmented areas of a *da Vinci® robotic instrument at the same time. Three *da Vinci® robotic instruments, including the S, Si, or Xi, can be cleaned at the same time using this dual hook-up method.

 

NOTE: Rinse all robotic instruments under running water before and after cleaning and rinsing them in the SurgiSonic® 1211X.

 

Two different types of suction chambers are used for this dual hook-up method.

 

#3315 SurgiScrub® scrubbing chamber with #3212 nipple

Before cleaning

After cleaning

1) The multi-holed #3315 SurgiScrub® scrubbing chamber, fitted with the #3212 medium hole latex free rubber nipple, was specifically designed to clean the segmented tool end of a *da Vinci® robotic instrument. The smaller inside diameter and the multiple holes drilled in the SurgiScrub® scrubbing chamber allows fluid to be sucked into the chamber in such a way as to maximize the scrubbing and removal of debris from the intricate jaw and pulley areas of the *da Vinci® robotic instrument.

 

NOTE: The multi-holed #3315 SurgiScrub® scrubbing chamber can only be used to clean the distal tool-end of a segmented robotic surgical instrument; as it cannot create the kind of unrelenting suction power that is needed to remove debris from the interior shaft of any type of tubular surgical instruments.

 

2) The #3212 SurgiSuction® suction chamber applies maximum suction to the shaft of tubular instruments.

 

The # 3200 male to male luer slip connector is used to attach the control box/and shaft of the da Vinci® robotic instrument to the # 3312 SurgiSuction™ suction chamber

The # 3312 SurgiSuction™ suction chamber was designed to apply a maximum amount of suction to the interior shaft of robotic & non-robotic tubular instruments
