Carriers, Cleaning, Cotton/Gauze Pad
Definition : Carriers designed to hold a cotton or gauze pad at the distal tip for cleaning the internal components of specific medical devices. These carriers are typically a long, slender instrument with a distal end appropriate to hold the pad and an integral handle for its manipulation. Cotton/gauze cleaning carriers are used for direct mechanical cleaning and/or are intended to be impregnated with cleaning products (e.g., detergent) for chemical cleaning of a medical device before it undergoes disinfection. Dedicated cotton/gauze pad carriers are available to remove debris from endoscopes and internal tubular structures of certain medical devices.
