WARNING
Switch off the unit, then, clean all accessible parts of the
machine with a detergent product or a detergent-disinfectant.
Avoid using liquids inside the unit. Follow the detergent
product or the detergent-disinfectant manufacturer
recommendations for safety precautions.
CAUTION
We recommend the use of barrier protected accessories,
available from distributors, between each patient use. If no
barrier protection is used, follow the daily maintenance tasks
described below. Use the disinfectant product according to
the recommendations of the manufacturer for safety
precautions.
Daily
Carry out the following maintenance tasks:
