Procedure Kit/Trays, Irrigation/Lavage, Gastric

Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (either custom or standard) needed for the liquid cleansing of the stomach. Items in these kits usually include a bulb or plunger syringe, a dedicated (e.g., nasogastric) two or three lumen tube, a container, waterproof drape, 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. Some kits also include the solutions used for lavage and/or activated charcoal to treat toxic substances. 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. Gastric irrigation/lavage kits and trays are used mainly in emergency departments (e.g., to remove toxic substances); they are also used for cleaning and evacuation of the stomach prior to some endoscopic and/or surgical procedures.
