To disinfect the thermometer probe for a surgical monitor, pour the disinfecting solution into an empty liter bag. We use a 60 cc syringe as a funnel to keep the solution from spilling. Then wipe off the probe and insert it into the bag and let it sit. We attach the liter bag to the equipment with a carabiner so the probe doesn't get separated from the monitor.
