Hygiene

Hygiene is a fundamental component of the entire health care process and, therefore, requires a high degree of professional competence and responsibility from all parties involved. The goal is to ensure that cleaning, disinfection and sterilization procedures are reproducible for every instrument in the daily clinical routine, using a suitable process that takes all applicable norms and laws into consideration. 

For KARL STORZ, this responsibility starts with the instrument design which allows and secures the most efficient cleaning possible. Validated reprocessing and optimal handling throughout the entire instrument cycle is complemented by individually coordinated accessories (storage systems, cleaning products, cleaning adaptors).

AKI brochure of instrument preparation

The AKI (Instrument Preparation Working Group) has published its recommendations on the preparation of instruments in hospitals and dental surgeries in three brochures:
The first edition of the brochure “Proper Maintenance of Instruments” dealt solely with the preparation of surgical instruments. The 8th revised edition is now available. New chapters were added to each successive edition as instruments became increasingly complex:

  • Surgical instruments
  • Rigid endoscopes
  • Microsurgical instruments
  • Flexible endoscopes
  • Supple instruments
  • Respiration systems and anesthesia accessories
  • Surgical motor systems
  • MIS instruments
