shelf life of sterile solution after unsealing: 24 hours. Shelf life of sterile disk: 4 hours

aseptic technology is a series of operation technologies to keep sterile articles and sterile areas from being polluted and prevent pathogenic microorganisms from invading the human body in the process of medical care operation. Aseptic technology is an important and basic technology to prevent nosocomial infection. Medical staff must master it correctly and skillfully, and strictly abide by the operating procedures in the technical operation, so as to ensure the safety of patients and prevent the occurrence of iatrogenic infection

the period of validity of sterile articles packaged with different materials is different:

the period of validity of sterile articles packaged with textile packaging materials (cotton cloth) is 7 days; The period of validity of sterile articles packaged in medical non-woven fabrics is 3 months

There is no final conclusion on the service life of sterilized cotton swabs after unsealing in China, and there is no unified standard for the placement of single package cotton swabs after opening. Some literatures believe that the effective time of sterilized cotton swabs in use is 4 hours after unsealing and 8 hours during standing. After this time, the serious contamination of sterile cotton swabs should be paid great attention to by medical staff. Considering that iodophor may be affected by contaminated cotton swabs, it is recommended to use disposable cotton swabs in small packages
