Hot Air Steriliser for Reprocessing Medical Instruments
The hot air steriliser is used for sterilising medical instruments in foot care clinics and for reprocessing instruments in cosmetic and nail studios. Because dry air has lower heat capacity than saturated steam, hot air sterilisers need to maintain higher temperatures and longer exposure times than when sterilising with autoclaves. Therefore, the hot air steriliser can only be used for non heat-sensitive instruments, such as metal scissors or tweezers.
The hot air steriliser is no longer the standard technology and is, therefore, not recommended for use in surgeries. An error in loading the hot air steriliser (too many or incorrect items) can cause the temperature to not evenly dispurse over the sterilised wares; thus not completely eliminating the microorganisms. Therefore, when using a hot air steriliser, it is vital to correctly fill the tray. Even instruments can only be sterilised with a hot air steriliser when they are in metal containers since the common, paper sterilisation packaging does not withstand the high temperatures. Upon removal of the unpacked instruments, it should be noted that the instruments immediately come in contact with the germs in the air and, thus, can no longer be strictly considered sterile.
