LUBRICANT and LUBRICATING
ONEcleaner eye surgical instrument water soluble lubricant cleaner delivers the "free rinsing" four enzyme detergents needed for cleaning eye surgical instruments residue free.
The all-in-ONEcleaner eye surgical instrument lubricant uses an ionic bond which is activated by the higher level temperatures during the final rinse. Conventional milk type lubricants have nominal bonding properties and are rinsed off with subsequent cleaning and sterilization cycles.
ONEcleaner eye surgical instrument detergents deliver a water soluble lubricant with every cleaning treatment that cleans rapidly, residue free, and cuts cleaning costs. The ONEcleaner lubricant is water soluble, neutral pH, non-irritating, phosphate free, and biodegradable.
AORN Recommendations for lubricating surgical instruments state that an eye surgical instrument lubricant is a valuable tool and an important variable in the instrument care process.
When carefully selected, lubricants can do much more than reduce friction and wear; they can lengthen the useful life of an instrument. Lubricants for medical equipment and invasive surgeries have obvious health and safety requirements. For example, hygiene and environmental regulations require lubricants to be discreet, non-toxic and effective. However, there are other factors affecting lubricant selection that hospitals and medical professionals need to be concerned with. The use of an inappropriate lubricant can lead to inadequate sterilization of surgical instruments.

When reprocessing instruments and preparing them for sterilization, it is critical to use lubricants specifically formulated and labeled for eye surgical instruments. This can help assure that the lubricants are formulated to allow sterilants to contact instrument surfaces, and will give confidence that they are compatible with the method of sterilization being used.
It is also critical to thoroughly clean each device to remove any soils, biofilm, vegetative and spore forms of organisms, oils, and any other residues that can impair sterilization. Applying heat to these residues can affix them more tightly to the surfaces and make the instruments even harder to sterilize. This leaves the potential for critical instrumentation to remain contaminated and ultimately to cause infection. Preserving surgical instrumentation has a significant benefit, since replacing worn and damaged instruments can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars per month. Poorly maintained equipment also jeopardizes surgeon satisfaction. When all the risk factors are considered, lubricants are a very cost-effective way of maintaining and getting the best performance from life-saving instruments.
value of eye surgical instrument lubrication
The Association of perioperative Registered Nurses (AORN) recommends that all decontaminated equipment with moving parts be bathed in a preserved water-soluble lubricant after each mechanical processing, unless the manufacturer advises otherwise.
AORN Recommended Practices state that: Surgical instruments should be checked for function after cleaning. Those with moving parts may require lubrication according to manufacturers' instructions. Water soluble lubricants should be applied to those instruments that require lubrication. Instruments should be cleaned before the lubricant is applied. Cleaning, particularly with ultrasonic cleaning, can remove lubricants from instruments. Lubricants decrease friction between working surfaces. Unless otherwise specified, lubricants should be water soluble to allow steam penetration during sterilization; oil-based products cannot be penetrated.
Surgical instruments should be lubricated with a neutral pH water soluble lubricant after every use and during every cleaning treatment.
ONEcleaners guarantee that your eye surgical instruments will be lubricated during every cleaning treatment.
