Irrigators, Wound

Definition : Irrigators designed for automated or semiautomated irrigation, washing, and debridement of external wounds. These devices consist of a main electromechanical unit that typically includes a pump for irrigation with nonmedicated liquids (e.g., saline); controls for the temperature, pressure, and rate of irrigation; and frequently a splash shield to avoid accidental contamination. The units are coupled to dedicated handpieces for irrigation and to facilitate easy removal of debris and necrotic tissue. Wound irrigators are used to remove damaged (e.g., necrotic) tissue and/or debris (e.g., dirt, foreign objects) in emergency departments and other healthcare areas. Dedicated wound irrigators using ultrasound energy to facilitate the procedure and provide better debridement are also available.
