Irrigators, Surgical Site
Definition : Irrigators designed to deliver sterile solutions into the operating site during surgical procedures. These irrigators consist of a main unit with an automated (usually peristaltic) pump, pressure sensors and regulating controls, a power supply source, and a dedicated auxiliary disposable tubing set; some systems include dedicated software used to perform the procedure and/or warming devices intended to keep the irrigation solution close to body temperature. Surgical site irrigators are intended for irrigation of the operating site; dedicated irrigators intended for particular surgical procedures such as electrosurgery are also available.
