Irrigators, Surgical Site, Electrosurgery
Definition : Surgical site irrigators designed to deliver sterile solutions into the operating site during electrosurgical 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. Electrosurgery irrigators are intended for irrigation of the surgical site concurrent with the performance of the electrosurgical procedure; some electrosurgical irrigators are attached to or an integral part of bipolar electrosurgical and/or electrocautery handpiece units.
