Procedure Kit/Trays, Drainage

Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (either custom or standard) needed for removing fluids from the body. Items in these kits usually include a drainage bag/vacuum bottle, a sterile dressing, gauze, alcohol swabs, gloves, and clamps; some kits may include a catheter. They are frequently supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Typically one end of the drainage catheters (i.e., drains) is inserted through the skin to the specific body cavity to stay there and the other end is connected to an external drainage bag permanently or temporarily. Drainage procedure kits and trays may be intended for long or short term drainage of effusions to promote healing.
