Procedure Kit/Trays, Irrigation/Lavage

Definition : Prepackaged collections of the small (e.g., handheld) devices and supplies (either custom or standard) needed for the instillation and drainage of fluid into a body structure, cavity, or wound for the purpose of cleansing or washing it out. Typical items in these kits include a bulb or plunger syringe, a container, a tip protector, a waterproof drape, tubing, a flow control device (e.g., a clamp), and an alcohol prep pad. The syringe used for irrigation in the kit may be also used for aspiration (i.e., removal) of the irrigating fluid and/or debris. These kits may be 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. Dedicated irrigation/lavage kits and trays intended for particular procedures, such as lavage of the urinary bladder, ear, eye, and peritoneum, are available.
