Abstract

National consensus standards provide guidance on the requisite steps to achieve HLD of flexible endoscopes. AERs can enhance efficiency and reliability of HLD by replacing some manual reprocessing steps. Precleaning is required before use of any AER, and manual cleaning remains the standard of care before disinfection. Use of an AER may also reduce exposure of personnel to chemical germicides. There are insufficient data to recommend a single method, device, or agent to achieve HLD.
