Shipp's Tips On Proper Instrument Cleaning, Handling and Maintenance

Use instruments only for their intended purpose. Improper use can cause damage and breakage. Handle your instruments gently with proper technique and avoid overstraining them. Proper care and sharpening will help an instrument work properly and last longer to perform many, many procedures well. Using an instrument that is too dull can result in breakage or damage. Sharpen often (after every use is best) and at proper angles. If not well versed, leave it to a professional sharpening service. Replacing an instrument when it’s time will insure that procedures go smoothly.

Stainless steel instruments are not impervious to stains or corrosion but with proper care and cleaning techniques they are extremely durable and resistant to all types of stains and imperfections. Immediately after use thoroughly rinse off all blood, tissue and other fluids with distilled or demineralized water. Unfiltered and tap water can leave stains and introduce minerals onto the surface which can then oxidize during sterilization. Do not use steel wool, wire brushes or high PH detergents. Clean and sterilize hinged instruments in the open position and lubricate prevent stiff movement, misalignment and cracks in the hinge. For carbide instruments use detergents and lubricants that are a neutral PH (7). Click here to download full article.
