TEE Probes are the esophageal probes. The leakage in this kind of probes may cause esophageal injury to the patients. So it is very necessary to perform the leak test on the probe for ensuring the  safety of the patients.

Equipment needed: 

TEE Basin 

Asepti-Zyme Solution or Saline 

Probe Adapter

Dual electrode 

TEE leakage current tester

Step One: 
TEE basin - be sure that it is filled to appropriate water level with a solution that will conduct electricity such as Asepti-Zyme

Step Two: 
Add Enzymatic solution to water or use Saline – this provides a form of conductivity to the water enabling you to perform leakage test

Step Three: 
Attach TEE probe adapter 

Step Four: 
Place TEE probe in the Enzymatic bath - ensure that the entire probe is fully immersed but not the handle

Step Five: 
Place the dual electrode into Enzymatic solution/saline to a depth of at least one inch Now you can conduct your electrical check.

Two checks are done:
1. Check solution for Conductivity
2. Test for Transducer Leakage Current


Move Switch to select Conductivity

  • Press the on test button Each time the on test button is turned on 

-all four LED indicators flash in sequence, continuing for five cycles.

  • The READY light glows amber when the self-test routine completes with successful battery test
  •  Press the on test button again to check Conductivity 

Green Light =Pass 

Red Light=Fail

Transducer Leakage Current: 

Perform the leakage test after the Conductivity test passes.

  • Move switch to select Leakage 
  • Press the on test button to perform leakage test. 

Green Light =Pass 

Red Light=Fail
