QUICK REFERENCE GUIDE

This setup guide is a summary of the ShockPulse-SE instructions for use (IFU). For detailed operating
instructions, be sure to follow the instruction manual that was included with your device when purchased.

ShockPulse-SE

Integrating ultrasound and mechanical energies simultaneously from a single probe enables rapid fragmentation of all types of stones. Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL/PNL) using a lithotripter has become standard procedure in stone management.

Assembling

Step 1: Screw probe onto the transducer until loosely connected.

Step 2: Place the torque wrench on the probe flats and then turn in the direction of the arrow until the wrench “clicks” to ensure adequate coupling.

Step 3: Connect the nose cone to the transducer.

Suction Control Setup

Step 4: Ensure the hospital has an adequate suction source available for sufficient stone aspiration.

Step 5: Start with an OR vacuum pressure of 100 mmHg or even lower to ensure patient safety. Maximum pressure is 150 mmHg.

Step 6: Connect sterile suction tubing to the transducer – outer diameter 9 mm, inner diameter 6 mm.

Note: Flow Control! – Always test the suction flow with sterile water before inserting the device into the patient.

Step 7: Adjust the suction control wheel so the marker is approximately at the halfway point of the suction indicator and make sure the hole isn’t accidently covered by your finger (causes full suction).

Activation Options

Hand Activation

Double Click = ON   Single Click = OFF

・Standard Power “S” – Produces an energy level that keeps the probe in contact with smaller stone fragments, allowing greater fragmentation.

・High Power “H” – Produces maximum energy to fragment large stones.

 

Foot Switch

Black Pedal = Standard Power
Grey Pedal = High Power

For safety reasons, hand activation is disabled when the foot switch is connected.

Operation Tips and Tricks

・Probe tip should always be in endoscopic view.

・The ShockPulse-SE should be placed in light contact with the stone, with gentle tapping of the stone.

・It is not necessary to press down on the stone with a lot of pressure.

・Pressing harder on the probe will actually reduce drilling performance.
