I have heard that Sani-clothes can damage the ultrasound probe. Is this correct? What is the best method to clean the probe?

JMV -

Every ultrasound manufacturer has a compatibility chart for their systems/probes. We use Sonosite X-portes in our ED's. For low level disinfection, we use Sani-cloth with the gray tops.

One question I have is regarding the use of Tegaderm. Comment made in segment that the pore size will not block viruses such as HPV, HIV.
However the 3M website says this about Tegaderm...

*In vitro testing shows that the transparent film of 3M TM TegadermTM brand dressings provide a viral barrier for viruses 27 nm in diameter or larger while the dressing remains intact without leakage.

Thank you.

I found this same information while doing my research. Im wondering if the use of "tegederm" is a gloss for all IV dressing covers, not realizing that 3M makes a trademarked product called tegederm which has a much smaller pore size than is discussed in the broadcast?

On the ALiEM blog, there's mention of using a non-sterile glove to protect the probe. Would that also work?
