Disinfectors, Liquid Germicide, Transesophageal Echocardiography Probe

Definition : Liquid germicide disinfectors designed to kill or inactivate many microorganisms (e.g., fungi, viruses, bacteria) found on transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) probes following a diagnostic TEE procedure. These disinfectors typically kill microorganisms including mycobacteria, all fungi, and small nonlipid viruses (medium-level disinfection). Some of these disinfectors can also kill spore-forming bacteria (except when there is a large number) which provides a high-level of disinfection (near-sterile disinfection). TEE ultrasonic probe disinfectors typically apply a chemical germicide (e.g., glutaraldehyde-based) to the probe, using mechanisms that facilitate the circulation of the germicide through the probe, usually taking a period of time shorter than that required for sterilization or when using manual procedures. The disinfectors provide fast automated disinfection and rinsing cycles; some equipment provides neutralization and/or absorption of the germicide. The results of each cycle may be printed to confirm the validity of the procedure. TEE probe disinfectors are used in healthcare facilities areas where a high turn-around of TEE probes is needed.
