Procedure Kit/Trays, Catheterization, Peritoneal, Dialysis

Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (i.e., either custom or standard kits) needed for insertion of a catheter intended for dialysis into the peritoneal cavity. Items in these kits usually include scalpels, scissors, dilators, tunnelers, needles, trocars, a peritoneal catheter, sponges, medicines, drapes, and sutures. 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. Peritoneal dialysis catheterization procedure kits and trays are used to infuse and extract a dialysate (i.e., chemical solution used in dialysis) into the peritoneal cavity; the dialysis procedure is used to correct an imbalance of fluid or of electrolytes in the blood or to remove toxins, drugs, or other wastes normally excreted by the kidney. The kits are used in hospital, at home, and in other healthcare facilities.
