simple sterile use with the vashe® sterile sleeve

Hold the sleeve by sliding one hand under the plastic fold and use the tabs to gently pull the sleeve open. Lay the sleeve on inside of arm for support.

As the sterile person (blue glove) is holding the sleeve open, have the circulating nurse (white glove) insert the Vashe bottle into the sleeve.

Locate tab 3, pull the tab away from its fold and remove the adhesive. Fold the plastic flap over the sleeve.

Puncture the Vashe bottle using the sleeve cap with a quick decisive motion. Slip the splash guard over the nozzle.
