FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
What handles can be used with my HEINE Laryngoscope Blade?
All HEINE Laryngoscope handles can be used with the HEINE Laryngoscope Blade.
How can I clean, disinfect and sterilize my HEINE Laryngoscope Blade?
Procedure after use:
Remove all traces of contamination immediately after use to avoid incrustation.
Manual cleaning / disinfection:
Use only cleaning and disinfection products which are recommended by the manufacturer for use with fiber optics. Follow the manufacturers instructions regarding concentration and duration of use exactly. After this process, rinse the blade with de-mineralised water and ensure that no deposits remain on them. Warning: Use of the wrong cleaning and disinfection products or methods can cause irreparable damage to the laryngoscope. Ultrasonic cleaning is not permitted!
Automatic cleaning / disinfection:
The laryngoscope can be cleaned or thermally disinfected at up to 93 °C in an automatic machine. Use only cleaning products, which are recommended for use with stainless steel. The rinsing procedure must ensure that no deposits are left on the product. Use only de-mineralised water for the final rinse.
Laryngoscopes have to be sterilized as required by national regulation and internal institutional standards. We recommend the sterilization with saturated steam at least 132 °C (max. 134 °C) for 3 minutes. Cycles of up to 18 minutes or up to 60 minutes in specified cases should not damage the metal part of the blade. There may be a reduction in light transmission with frequent / repeated long-term steam sterilization, particularly if the steam quality is not ideal.
