Cleaning Instructions for our 4 and 8 Chamber Sequential Circulator Garments and our BioArterial Garments

Exterior Case Cleaning Instructions:

  • Clean the exterior case and tubing with a damp (not wet) cloth using a mild soap and water solution once per month.
  • WARNING!
  • Only an authorized technician may open the pump.
  • Before cleaning, unplug power cord from electrical outlet.

Garment Cleaning/Disinfecting Instructions:

  • Disconnect garment from device.
  • Open garment to expose all sides either by separating Velcro type hook and loop or by unzipping (depending on type of garment).

WARNING!

  • Do not allow liquids to enter pump, as this can present an electrical hazard.
  • Always allow the pump to dry before using.
  • Do not use bleach on the pump.
  • Cleaning solution should consist of 1/3 cup of laundry detergent per 1 gallon of warm tap water.  Use either a large sink or plastic tub able to hold enough solution (depending on size and quantity of garments) to completely submerge the garment leaving the latch connector bars out of the water.
  • Garment should be soaked for 30 minutes with mild agitation every 5 to 10 minutes while keeping it below water surface.
  • Thoroughly rinse garment with warm tape water and allow to air dry.
  • WARNING! Never allow the Latch Connectors to be submerged into the water.  If water enters the inside of the garment, damage may occur to the device.
  • Harder to remove soil on surface of garment may require additional washing by hand with a clean towel while submerged.  Avoid using any abrasive materials such as scrubbing pads or chemicals that could cause damage to the exterior surface of garment. 
  • Re-submerge garment for 30 minutes (with exception of tubing connectors) in solution consisting of 1 cup of bleach per 1 gallon of warm tap water, again agitating garment every 5 to 10 minutes while keeping garment below water surface.  Rinse garment thoroughly with warm tap water and allow to air dry.  This completes the disinfecting step. 
  • WARNING! DO NOT place garment in washing machine.
  • WARNING! DO NOT use the tubing or valves as “handles” for carrying, handling or storing garment.
