Single Use Lens Caps to Prevent Patient Cross Contamination
Vx VELcaps ensure asepsis and prevent fogging while protecting the optics of the VELscope® Vx device, the filters, and ultimately your investment in the system.
VELcaps are sold in 128-count shipping boxes that include eight 16-count dispenser boxes for convenient use in the operatory.
Single Use Plastic Sheaths to Prevent Patient Cross Contamination
Easy to use, disposable sheaths extend the life of your VELscope® Vx unit.
Sold in convenient 250 count dispenser boxes, single-use VELsheaths are specially designed sheaths that allow proper ventilation for your VELscope® Vx scope while preventing debris buildup and cross-contamination in the operatory.
How To Use
Place the VELsheath over your VELscope® Vx before putting on a VELcap.
Place the VELcap over the end of the scope.
Perform the VELscope® Vx patient exam.
Remove and dispose of the contaminated VELcap and VELsheath with gloved hands after use.
IMPORTANT: Do not use sprays or wipes to clean your VELscope® Vx unit as this could damage the optics. In addition, do not wrap the unit in any plastic wrapping such as Saran Wrap or Cling Wrap as this will cause the unit to overheat and become damaged.
When not in use, it is recommended that you place a new VELsheath over the VELscope® Vx scope to prevent dust particles and debris from settling in the hard-to-clean areas of the scope. This will prolong the life of the scope and ensure it is free of debris for the next patient.
The VELsheath must be disposed after each use in keeping with CDC Guidelines for Infection Control in Dental Health-Care Settings. Although the unit does not touch the patients’ mouth it is held close enough to become contaminated. Airborne pathogens and dust particles can compromise the optics of the VELscope® Vx and prevent optimal performance of the scope.
Barrier protection of surfaces and equipment can prevent contamination of clinical contact surfaces, but is particularly effective for those that are difficult to clean. Barriers include clear plastic wrap, bags, sheets, tubing, and plastic-backed paper or other materials impervious to moisture. Clinical contact surfaces can be directly contaminated from patient materials either by direct spray or spatter generated during dental procedures or by contact with DHCP’s gloved hands. These surfaces can subsequently contaminate other instruments, devices, hands, or gloves. Because such coverings can become contaminated, they should be removed and discarded between patients, while DHCP are still gloved. DHCP should place clean barriers on these surfaces before the next patient. Guidelines for Infection Control in Dental Health-Care Settings – 2003.
