Cleaning and Sterilization
Follow these cleaning instructions in the hospital or at home
unless you are told otherwise by your physician or another
medical professional.
1. Hospital Sterilization
Prior to first use (if kit is in non-sterile packaging) and before
first use in the morning:
All disassembled parts can be autoclaved to a maxi-
mum of 272°F for 3 minutes at 29 PSIG or 250°F for
15 minutes at 15 PSIG.
To avoid damage during and immediately 
after sterilization:
- Sterilize parts without applying 
external pressure to them.
- Allow parts to cool before applying 
external pressure.
Autoclaving the tubing may cause clouding or 
discoloration which will not affect kit performance.
Health and Safety

the breastshield and separate the membrane from the valve
prior to cleaning or sterilization (see parts 2, 3, and 4 on
