Procedure Kit/Trays, Irrigation/Lavage, Perineal
Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (either custom or standard) necessary for the liquid cleansing of the area between the thighs, bounded in the male by the scrotum and anus and in the female by the vulva and anus (i.e., perineal area). Items in these kits usually include a syringe, a container, a tip protector, 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. 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. Perineal irrigation/lavage kits and trays are used for therapeutic treatment of infection and inflammation; they are also used for cleansing of the area before surgical procedures.
