Process This Episode 24: The ins and outs of IFU

In this episode of Process This we are joined by Lisa McKown (formerly Wakeman), research and development manager for Beyond Clean, to discuss medical device instructions for use (IFU) and their critical importance for Sterile Processing. Key focus areas include instrument complexity and lack of IFU standardization; the ideal manual content needed to quickly and effectively process devices; and future possibilities for managing IFU effectively.

Also in this episode, Mailbox Mania opens with host Jon Wood reviewing two articles from IAHCSMM’s PROCESS magazine: standards development in the age of COVID-19 (including sterilization standards and progress on ANSI/AAMI ST79 and ST91 amendments), and washer-disinfector-related errors and cleaning challenges.
