Title
(EN) ISOLATOR FOR USE IN SURGERY
(FR) ISOLATEUR UTILISE EN CHIRURGIE
Abstract
(EN) An isolator and method of using it for providing a contamination-free atmosphere in which a surgical procedure can be performed or equipment that is sensitive to environmental contamination can be assembled. The isolator includes an inflatable bag (10) of flexible material through which filtered air is pumped to continuously change the air and maintain a positive pressure in the bag. For use in surgery, a portion of the lower side is made of a surgical drape material (30) of elastic material to allow a body member upon which a surgical procedure is to be performed to be pulled into the work space of the bag through an incision in the drape that is smaller than the member to cause the stretched elastic material to tightly surround the member and reduce the chances of disease organisms from entering the work space from outside the bubble.
(FR) Un isolateur et son procédé d'utilisation permettent d'obtenir une atmosphère exempte de contamination dans laquelle une opération chirurgicale peut être effectuée ou un équipement qui est sensible à la contamination de l'environnement peut être assemblé. L'isolateur comprend un sac gonflable (10) en matériau souple à travers lequel de l'air filtré est injecté pour renouveler constamment l'air et maintenir une pression positive dans le sac. Pour l'usage chirurgical, une partie de la face inférieure est fabriquée dans un tissu élastique (30) de drap chirurgical afin de permettre à un membre du corps, sur lequel une opération chirurgicale doit être pratiquée, d'être tiré à l'intérieur de l'espace de travail du sac à travers une incision faite dans le drap et qui est plus petite que le membre afin d'amener le tissu élastique étiré à entourer hermétiquement le membre et à réduire les risques de pénétration d'organismes infectieux dans l'espace de travail depuis l'extérieur de la bulle.
