Self-Seal Sterilization Pouch:
After removing the protective strip, seal the pouch by folding the adhesive strip onto the pouch. Apply pressure from the center of the adhesive, towards the edges. Repeat this motion an additional time for extra security. If you are using a double pouching method, the pouch sizes should be selected so the inner pouch can be placed inside the outer pouch without folding. The inner pouch must also be sealed. The paper side of both pouches should face the same way. For example, paper towards paper and film towards film. Example of single- and double-packaging with paperplastic pouches. NOTE: Instruments should be oriented within pouches according to the health care facilitys policies and procedures.
