Medical Devices have a significant position in the medical and dental field. They are professional tools in the daily treatment of patients and have a significant price according to their quality. For medical practices and hospitals, they are therefore working tools of special value.
In order to guarantee this value, the functionality as well as the sterility of the instruments over a long period of time, it is necessary to reprocess them with the right processes and procedures. The selection and implementation of these procedures poses a new challenge for the staff every day, because not all employees always have the necessary knowledge about the correct processing.
For more than 40 years, AKI's brochures, which are published in 20 languages, have proven to be a valuable tool for acquiring this knowledge. More than 405,000 copies have been produced so far and more and more interested users are also taking advantage of the free download option from the AKI homepage.
The practical experiences written down in the AKI brochures in connection with the explanation of basic interrelationships help to maintain the function and value of the reusable medical devices for many years through professional processing. And if a problem should still occur, users will find valuable information in chapter 12 on how to determine the cause and correct the error.
This uncomplicated, practical and time-saving help is highly appreciated in hospitals and medical practices in many countries around the world. We invite you to form your own opinion.
