Procedure Kit/Trays, Catheterization
Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (either custom or standard) needed for insertion of a catheter into a body cavity, duct, or vessel. Items in these kits usually include a catheter, drapes, syringes, under-pads, gloves, forceps, cotton or rayon balls, a lubricant packet, and povidone-iodine solution; catheterization kits may also include specimen containers and a collection bag. 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. Catheterization procedure kits and trays are intended to insert catheters used for drainage and administration of fluids, and/or permit access by surgical instruments. Dedicated catheterization kits for particular procedures such as intravenous, cardiac, and urinary tract catheterization are available.
