SIEMENS Healthineers Preventing contaminated medical devices in the context of COVID-19 Recommendations X-ray Products Unrestricted © Siemens Healthineers, 2020 X-ray Products SIEMENS Healthineers Overview According to the WHO COVID-19 information center: “People can catch COVID-19 from others who have the virus. The disease can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales. These droplets land on objects and surfaces around the person. Other people then catch COVID-19 by touching these objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, nose or mouth. People can also catch COVID-19 if they breathe in droplets from a person with COVID-19 who coughs out or exhales droplets.” ¹ In this context, patients infected with COVID-19 which undergo exams in medical devices might transmit the disease via contamination of the systems surfaces and therefore disinfecting the systems after each patient is recommended. 1 See Q&A on coronaviruses (COVID-19), https://www.who.int/news-room/q-a-detail/q-a-coronaviruses, 26th March 2020 SHS DI XP 2 Unrestricted © Siemens Healthineers, 2020 X-ray Products SIEMENS Healthineers Overview Recommendations • To date, the recommendations of the existing risk assessment apply. Generally used disinfectants have to be effective against the COVID-19 virus. Check list of disinfectants that meet EPA’s criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2 and its label for specific instructions for inactivation and follow label instructions for product use (for countries that do not follow EPA recommendation, local environmental protection agencies recommendation apply). ¹,2 • All parts of objects that could potentially come into contact with patients and medical staff have to be disinfected. • All local hygiene instructions (hospital) must be followed. These should meet at least our recommendations. • Please follow the proper cleaning instructions provided in the operator’s manual. Caution Please note that some cleaning agents can cause damage to system components and accessories, a specific list of recommendation for different modalities can be found in the instruction for use of the medical device. Do not pour cleaning fluid onto surfaces and do not spray fluids - always use a damp cloth for cleaning. Please contact your local Siemens Healthineers organization for further details. 1 See EPA / US, https://www.epa.gov/pesticide-registration/list-n-disinfectants-use-against-sars-cov-2, 26th March 2020 SHS DI XP 3 ² See RKI / Germany, https://www.rki.de/DE/Content/InfAZ/N/Neuartiges_Coronavirus/Hygiene.html, 26th March 2020 Unrestricted © Siemens Healthineers, 2020 X-ray Products SIEMENS Healthineers Radiography & Mobile Generators rubbing alcohol quaternary compound benzene antistatic cleaner guanidine derivative organic acid chlorine derivative phenol derivative alcohol aldehyde peroxid al kyLamine AHP (accelerated hydrogene peroxid) household cleaning agent, phH-neutral pyridine derivative Radiography Multitom Rax X X X X X X X Ysio Max X × X X × Multix Fusion Max X X MULTIX Impact X X X X X Mobile Generators MOBILETT Elara Max Main System X X X X X X X X Detector X X X X Mobilett Mira Max Main System X X X X X Detector X X x SHS DI XP 4 Unrestricted © Siemens Healthineers, 2020 X-ray Products SIEMENS Healthineers Fluoroscopy & Urology chlorine derivative quaternary compound AHP (accelerated hydrogene peroxid) organic acid guanidine derivative alcohol aldehyde benzene peroxid pyridine derivative alkylamine rubbing alcohol antistatic cleaner phenol derivative household cleaning agent, phH-neutral Fluoroscopy Luminos Agile Max X X X X X Luminos dRF Max X X X X X Luminos Fusion FD X X X Urology Uroskop Omnia Max x × x x x × × SHS DI XP 5 Unrestricted © Siemens Healthineers, 2020 X-ray Products SIEMENS Healthineers Mammography alcohol aldehyde benzene alkylamine chlorine derivative household cleaning agent, phH-neutral quaternary compound pyridine derivative organic acid peroxid AHP (accelerated hydrogene peroxid) rubbing alcohol guanidine derivative phenol derivative antistatic cleaner Mammography Standard needle holder / MAMMOMAT Revelation Special needle holder for dedicated biopsy systems Compression troughs X X Compression holder X not permitted alcohol-based products Detector cover, Mag table x X X products containing hydrogen X X Moodlight x peroxide MAMMOMAT Inspiration Compression troughs X X Compression holder X X Detector cover, Mag table X X X X Moodlight X MAMMOMAT Fusion Compression troughs X X Compression holder X X Detector cover, Mag table X X X X Moodlight X SHS DI XP 6 Unrestricted © Siemens Healthineers, 2020 Contact SIEMENS Healthineers Siemens Healthineers SHS DI X-ray products Siemens Healthcare GmbH Siemensstrasse 3 91131 Forchheim, Germany Phone: +49 9191 18 - 0 siemens-healthineers.com SHS DI XP 7 Unrestricted © Siemens Healthineers, 2020
