Side Effects Of The Use Of Infusion Tubes That Expire?
Good evening, I want to ask ..
Hello, thanks for the question.
Medical devices that have expired are medical devices that have passed the safety time limit for their use. This medical device can be in the form of IV tubes, needles, threads, surgical instruments, and so forth. The expiry time stated on the packaging of the equipment indicates the deadline for the safety of medical devices, the device will be effective and safe if used before the date stated and in the appropriate storage method, for example with appropriate temperature, humidity and lighting conditions. Expired medical devices should be used because they can pose health risks because the safety of the equipment is not guaranteed. Just like food, the tool also has a time limit for use when passing the time bas the tool will be damaged and the quality will decrease so that it will be more easily damaged and overgrown with germs and fungi that can cause health problems. Therefore, it is better before the use of medical devices should be carried out safety checks of equipment first, such as one of them expiration date. We recommend that tools that have expired are collected and destroyed in special places for the destruction of medical devices.
so, hopefully it helps.
