Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR MONITORING FLUID PROPERTIES RELATING TO MEDICAL DEVICE'S CLEANLINESS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE SURVEILLANCE DES PROPRIÉTÉS D’UN LIQUIDE RELATIVES À LA PROPRETÉ D’UN DISPOSITIF MÉDICAL
Abstract:
(EN) Embodiments of the present disclosure include methods and apparatuses for monitoring fluid properties relating to a medical device's cleanliness. In embodiments, an apparatus for monitoring the fluid properties relating to a medical device's cleanliness comprises at least one sensor that measures a pre-cleaning parameters of a cleaning fluid and a post-cleaning parameters of the cleaning fluid, a cleaning chamber coupled to the at least one sensor, the cleaning chamber configured to receive the medical device and clean the medical device using the cleaning fluid, and a processing device coupled to the at least one sensor. The processing device is configured to: determine a cleanliness of the medical device based on a comparison between the post-cleaning parameters and the pre-cleaning parameters; and output the cleanliness of the medical device to a display device.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des procédés et des appareils de surveillance des propriétés d’un liquide relatives à la propreté d’un dispositif médical. Dans les modes de réalisation, un appareil de surveillance des propriétés d’un liquide relatives à la propreté d’un dispositif médical comprend au moins un détecteur qui mesure des paramètres de pré-nettoyage d’un liquide de nettoyage et des paramètres de post-nettoyage du liquide de nettoyage, une chambre de nettoyage couplée audit détecteur, la chambre de nettoyage étant conçue pour recevoir le dispositif médical et nettoyer le dispositif médical en utilisant le liquide de nettoyage, et un dispositif de traitement couplé audit détecteur. Le dispositif de traitement est configuré : pour déterminer une propreté du dispositif médical sur la base d’une comparaison entre les paramètres de post-nettoyage et les paramètres de pré-nettoyage ; et envoyer la propreté du dispositif médical au dispositif d’affichage.
