Ultrasound checklist from the ISRRT Response Document

1. Preparation, during and post procedure precautions

1.4. Imaging room or mobile equipment

As per generic advice

  • Set aside dedicated COVID-19 room / equipment / mobile / probe(s). This should be a room with air exchange of 6 exchanges per hour (WHO guidance, PHE 6.4.20
  • Use of single-use gel packs is recommended as opposed to refillable gel containers (ISUOG, 23.03.20). 
  • Consider probe cover for non-endoluminal probes (this is not a CDC absolute requirement (ISUOG, 23.03.20)). 
  • After use with each COVID-19 patient, clean all equipment in line with the principles and advice on couch cleaning in the Appendix.
