  1. SURGICAL INSTRUMENTS PASSIVATION – RUST PREVENTION

    SURGICAL INSTRUMENTS PASSIVATION – RUST PREVENTION

    How Instruments are made resistant to rusting and reacting with acidic elements during the operation. 

    The removal of exogenous iron or iron compounds from the surface of stainless steel by means of a chemical dissolution, most typically by a treatment with an acid solution that will remove the surface contamination but will not significantly affect the stainless steel itself”

    In addition, it also describes passivation as “the chemical treatment of stainless steel with a mild oxidant, such as a nitric acid solution, for the purpose of enhancing the spontaneous formation of the protective passive film.”

    In layman’s terms, the passivation process removes “free iron” contamination left behind on the surface of the stainless steel as a result of mac

    MEDICAL INSTRUMENTS CARE AND HANDLING

     Instruments Care and Handling

    • Medical Tools Instruments last for years with proper care and handling. Please use these guidelines for all stainless steel instruments.
    • Brand new instruments should be cleaned prior to first sterilization.
    • Contaminated instruments should be processed as soon as possible.
    • Stubborn protein particles can be removed with a scrub brush. Never use steel wool, abrasives or an acid rinse.
    • Open joints on instruments prior to preparation
    • Do not use multipurpose detergents to wash or soak instruments. Instead, use a low-suds detergent specifically designed for instruments. The pH should never be higher than 8. When using ultrasonic, a detergent with a pH of 6, 7 or 8.
    • Lubrication is vital to a long instrument life.
    • Avoid silicone lubricants because the

  5. DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STERILIZATION AND DISINFECTION

    DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STERILIZATION AND DISINFECTION

    While considering methods for sterilization procedures, it is important to differentiate between sterilization and disinfection.


    * Sterilization kills all viable microorganisms.
    * Disinfection only reduces the number of viable microorganisms.

    High-level disinfection will kill most vegetative microorganisms but will not kill the more resistant bacterial spores. Commonly used disinfectants such as alcohol, iodophors, quaternary ammonium and phenolic compounds are not effective sterilants and, therefore, are not acceptable for use on items intended to be used in survival surgical procedures.

    The preferred methods of sterilization are high-pressure steam/temperature (in autoclaves) for items that can withstand high temperature and ethylene oxide gas for items that cannot withstand high temperature. However, cold chemical st

  6. TYPES OF STAINLESS STEEL USED IN MEDICAL INSTRUMENTS

    TYPES OF STAINLESS STEEL USED IN MEDICAL INSTRUMENTS

    Stainless Steel used in Instruments and wearable Metal Objects

    Stainless Steel is a generic term commonly used to describe a group of Iron-based alloys which exhibit a phenomenal resistance to rusting or corrosion because of it’s Chromium content. Chromium has been added in small amounts to strengthen Steel since the Famous Eads Bridge spanned the Mississippi River at St. Louis, Missouri, in 1872. But it was only discovered in the present century that when Iron was alloyed with Chromium in excess of 10%, and Carbon held suitably low, it was effectively rustproof. The term “Stainless” was
    first used to describe steel cutlery that was produced in Sheffield England in C.1916. In 1913 316L stainless Steel was first patented, In 1926 a Stainless Steel composed of 18% Chromium and 8% Nickel was

  7. HOW TO EVALUATE QUALITY OF SURGICAL INSTRUMENTS?

    How to evaluate quality of surgical instruments?

    Surgical instruments are specially designed tools to perform specific operation; some surgical instruments are designed for general use in surgery, while others are designed for a specific procedure or surgery.

    As these are special tools, quality is one of the key factors whether purchasing new instruments, or merely evaluating you already own. An evaluation criterion is highly dependent on the product type and its functionality e.g. endoscopes functionality and quality should not be compared with hand tools such as scissors and forceps. However some general attributes need to consider when purchasing new instruments.

    Raw Material
    Raw material plays vital role in surgical instruments, high quality raw material instruments last longer without loosing their shape and functionality. Selection of raw material some depends on the intended function of the tool, e.g. Scissors can
