Assistive products for tissue integrity when lying down
Part 10: Guide to cleaning, disinfecting, and care of polyurethane APTI covers
(ISO/TS 20342-10:2022); German version CEN ISO/TS 20342-10:2022 Class/Status:
VDE Art. No.: 0701398
Most healthcare assistive products for tissue integrity when lying down (APTIs) include a polyurethane-coated protective, waterproof, moisture vapour permeable cover, which is designed to protect the internal components of the APTI from damage, while still allowing the tissue integrity functions of the APTI to be effective. Polyurethane APTI covers are ‘soft surfaces’, and even the most chemically resistant types are not immune to the aggressive ingredients used in some disinfectants. Furthermore, polyurethane APTI covers are more vulnerable to abrasion when wet. These guidelines for handling APTI polyurethane covers are intended to lead to less damage to the covers and a longer life for the APTI. Other aspects relating to the materials, effectiveness, and durability of APTIs are covered in other parts of ISO 20342. This document gives guidance for cleaning and disinfecting by manual means only.
