Cleaning and Disinfecting Procedure
The stethoscope and CORE should be cleaned between each patient use. All cleaning instructions pertaining to the original stethoscope apply.
Under normal conditions it is unnecessary to remove CORE from the stethoscope tubing for cleaning. All external parts of the hardware can be cleaned with 70% isopropyl alcohol wipes.
NOTE: DO NOT immerse the device in any liquid or subject it to any high-pressure/autoclave sterilization processes.
If it becomes necessary to remove CORE, pull the stethoscope tubing off of the metal stem on both ends of the device. Wipe all parts of the stethoscope clean with 70% isopropyl alcohol wipes including CORE’s surface, stethoscope tubing, tubing connector, and chest piece. Reassemble the stethoscope by reinserting the metal stems into the stethoscope tubing as before.
