The TubeClear System contains magnets. Magnets are inside the Control Box and at the end of the Clearing Stem that attaches to the Control Box. Do NOT place the Control Box and the Magnet at the end of the Clearing Stem within 15 cm (6 in) of pacemakers, defibrillators, and other electronic devices (including, but not limited to, credit cards, video tapes, televisions, computer monitors, and other CRT displays) because the Magnets may interfere with the operation of those devices.
Federal law (U.S.) restricts the TubeClear System to sale by or on the order of a physician.
The TubeClear System is intended for use by Certified or Licensed Healthcare Practitioners. Reading the Operator’s Manual is required before using the TubeClear System.
