A vigorous program of regular inspection of probes’ insulation should be practiced. Formal procedures should be set-up to minimize the potential damage to the probe’s insulation. This procedure should incorporate the probe’s insulation testing on a regular basis. One of the best and most cost effective way to test the probe’s insulation’s integrity is to utilize the McGan integrity testing units. It is recommended by Standard Organizations that the probe be tested post-surgery in the Sterile Department after the probe has been cleaned and just prior to sterilization.
