CleanGuard™ Product Overview

Why put your patients’ safety and facilities’ reputation at risk reprocessing endoscope valves when you could use CleanGuard Disposable Endoscope Valves? Meeting the standards of AORN, AAMI & SGNA2,4, these single-use valves are designed to help you protect patients by reducing the risk of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs).

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • One Less Risk to Worry About
    • Effective Endoscope reprocessing isn’t easy. In fact, there are over 40 Steps in the leading flexible scope manufacturer’s reprocessing manual for cleaning and disinfecting reusable scope valves – including 7 WARNINGS and 5 CAUTIONS.1 By switching to single-use valves, you remove several steps from the process and help eliminate a potential risk to patients.
  • Meets the Standards of AORN, AAMI & SGNA2,4
    • CleanGuard Disposable Endoscope Valves comply with AORN, AAMI and SGNA Practice Committee Infection Control Standards for flexible endoscope reprocessing – so you can ensure your facility is following industry best practices.
  • What Threats May Be Hiding on Your “Patient-Ready” Reprocessed Valves?
    • Are your reprocessed valves truly patient-ready? A private study by Nova Group showed that of 64 Air/Water and Suction valves deemed to be “patient ready” 60.2% contained bacteria, yeast, mold or spores.6 Likewise, an EndoNurse report found that 8 of 15 (53.3%) biopsy port valves exhibited some form of debris after cleaning.5
  • Designed to Save Time
    • In addition to peace of mind, these valves are also designed to increase efficiency by eliminating the time and effort required to reprocess endoscope valves.
