Title (EN) ABSORBENT-CONTAINING DRAINAGE BAG AND METHOD OF USE
(FR) POCHE DE DRAINAGE CONTENANT UN PRODUIT ABSORBANT ET PROCEDE D'UTILISATION
Abstract:
(EN) A flexible impermeable drainage bag (11) for collecting biological fluid (urine). It includes a port (18) communicating with the drainage bag interior, and free-flowing, water-absorbing, water-swellable, water-insoluble, gel-forming polymer particles (20) disposed in said drainage bag. The polymer particles (formed of polyacrylamide) are capable of absorbing many times their weight of water to form expanded gel particles capable of substantially immobilizing toxic bacteria present in said drainage bag.
(FR) Poche de drainage (11) souple et imperméable servant à recueillir des fluides biologiques (de l'urine). Elle comprend un orifice (18) communiquant avec l'intérieur de la poche de drainage, et des particules polymères (20) libres pouvant former un gel, absorbant l'eau, et insolubles et gonflant dans l'eau sont disposées dans ladite poche de drainage. Les particules polymères (composées de polyacrylamide) peuvent absorber plusieurs fois leur poids d'eau pour former des particules gonflées en forme de gel pouvant immobiliser sensiblement des bactéries toxiques présentes dans la poche de drainage.
