To reduce the risk of ultrasound probe cross infection, it is important to know when to perform the high level disinfection (HLD) process.
Multiple US guidelines advise that all semi-critical instruments should undergo high level disinfection (HLD) between patient exposures, including surface probes used in semi-critical procedures.
A surface probe can contact a patient’s broken skin and bodily fluids and could become contaminated with blood and microorganisms.
