Reusing single-use devices can create serious infections such as risk of:
Cross-contamination and infection arising from a device which has not been designed to be cleaned.
Endotoxin reactions from excess bacterial breakdown which is not removal by cleaning.
Patient injury caused by dematerialisation of the device, due to sharp edges that have become dulled or fine tubes that become blocked.
Chemical burns due to a reaction of chemicals with the device during reprocessing.
Sterimedix, the manufacturers of Silkann, strive to improve their products by supplying innovative single use aesthetic instruments presented in user-friendly packaging. Sterimedix products are packe’d as single sterile blisters in space saving boxes designe’d for minimal waste.
