Procedure Kit/Trays, Culdocentesis
Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (either custom or standard) needed for performing the extraction of peritoneal fluid from the recto-uterine pouch posterior to the vagina through a needle (i.e., culdocentesis). Items in these kits usually include a speculum, antiseptic swabs, chlorohexidine, lidocaine, a gauge spinal needle, syringes, and tenaculums. The kits 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. These procedure kits and trays are intended for use during diagnostic technique procedures to check for abnormal fluid in order to identify pelvic inflammatory diseases, ectopic pregnancy, or ovarian cysts. Culdocentesis procedure kits and trays are used in doctors' offices, hospitals, and other healthcare facilities.
