Review Notes DETAILS


When loading items into the sterilizer:

  • Items must be arranged in such a way that provides maximum exposure of the surface to the sterilizing agent
  • Perforated trays should be placed so the tray is parallel to the shelf
  • Non-perforated containers like basins should be placed on their edge
  • Peel packs should be placed on edge in perforated or mesh bottom racks or baskets
  • The maximum density of linen packs must not exceed 7.2 lbs per cubic foot because higher density may reduce sterilant access to all contents
  • The FDA classifies sterilization packages as a Class II Medical Device
