Introduction to disinfection methods of acupuncture needles
Acupuncture needles need to be disinfected before use, and the commonly used disinfection methods mainly include:
1. High temperature and high pressure disinfection is more stringent. Long-term disinfection will cause loss of the needle tip, which will not sharpen the needle and increase the patient's pain. In addition, the needle will rust away after high temperature and high pressure disinfection, and the service life will gradually shorten. .
2. Use 75% alcohol for soaking. Long-term soaking will damage the needle. In addition to the loss of needle body and dullness of needle tip, there is also a potential factor in needle disinfection, which is whether the disinfection is strict. Some patients may have concerns.
