Aspirator/Irrigators, Gastric

Definition : Aspirators/irrigators designed for automated or semiautomated irrigation, washing, and evacuation of debris (e.g., toxic substances) from the stomach. These devices typically consist of a main electromechanical unit that includes a pump for infusion of nonmedicated liquids (e.g., saline); an extractor (frequently using vacuum); controls for the temperature, rate of infusion and withdrawal of the liquid, and pressure; and bags for the irrigation solution and waste. Most units can deliver charcoal to the stomach for absorption of toxic substances. Stomach aspiration/irrigation units are usually coupled to disposable vented tubes that are introduced into the stomach through the mouth. The units are intended mainly for use in emergency departments; they are also used for cleaning and evacuation of the stomach before some endoscopic and/or surgical procedures.
