CREEDMOOR, NORTH CAROLINA – CS Medical is pleased to announce the release of another tool that will aide healthcare professionals in their fight to reduce healthcare associated infections. For healthcare facilities that own the TD 100, the web-based In-Service Training Program offers round-the-clock training of staff charged with the reprocessing of TEE probes.
For over a decade the TD 100 has been an effective tool in the reprocessing of TEE ultrasound probes by providing high-level disinfection in only 5 minutes. In order to ensure proper operation of the TD 100, an in-service training is completed at the conclusion of each installation and verification of operation. CS Medical service staff provides a step-by-step, hands-on training program for proper operation and preventative maintenance of the device. The web-based training portal provides the same training subject matter as directed by CS Medical staff, but is offered as an on-demand tool to meet competency requirements within your healthcare facility or outlined by TJC (The Joint Commission). The web-based training program includes a proficiency quiz and competency certificate upon completion of the program.
"We are extremely pleased to provide our healthcare clients with this new web-based training tool. Training is at the forefront to reduction of HAIs and by providing on demand staff training for use of the TD 100 plus the TEE Complete Care suite of products will continue to improve TEE probe care and patient outcomes," said Mark Leath, CS Medical President. "We are committed to continuing our efforts to work with healthcare professionals and other professional organizations in the reduction of HAIs and increase awareness for a better and safer healthcare system."

About CS Medical
CS Medical LLC has pioneered the automated disinfection process for Transesophageal ultrasound probes with the development and release of the TD 100® Automated TEE Probe Disinfector. In 2005, the TD 100 was the first FDA cleared automated disinfection process with printed verification for Transesophageal ultrasound probes. During the disinfection process, the TEE probe receives high-level disinfection in (5) five minutes from TD-5® or TD-8® followed by (5) five complete rinse cycles before disinfection confirmation is acknowledged and a report is printed. The verification report indicates probe contact time with the high-level disinfectant as well as the average temperature of the single-use disinfectant during each cycle.
For more than 15 years and over 4 million high-level disinfections, the TD 100 Automated TEE Probe Disinfector has eliminated manual reprocessing of delicate and expensive TEE ultrasound probes while also providing a repeatable and FDA cleared disinfection process. The TEEClean® Automated TEE Probe Cleaner Disinfector will continue the TD 100's work by automating the required cleaning process for the TEE probe before high-level disinfection. TEEClean, with electronic record data logging, printed verification reporting, FDA cleared cleaning, and high-level disinfection will be the standard of care for TEE ultrasound probes.
CS Medical's TEE Complete Care® products provide quality device care and storage by minimizing healthcare operational costs, improving service readiness and increasing regulatory compliance.
