Title (EN) METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR STERILIZING SURGICAL DRAINS
(FR) MÉTHODES ET SYSTÈMES DE STÉRILISATION DE DRAINS CHIRURGICAUX
Abstract:
(EN) Systems and methods for decontaminating a surgical drain and its reservoir are provided. An apparatus is provided in the form of a container having an interior chamber and an expansible opening to the interior chamber for insertion of a surgical drain therethrough. Ultraviolet light emitters are disposed within the interior chamber to emit beams of ultraviolet radiation at the surgical drain and/or its reservoir, thereby killing or neutralizing bacteria and fungus on the drain. Walls forming the expansible opening are collapsible to abut a portion of the inserted drain when inserted into the apparatus, and a fluid tight seal is formed between the drain and the apparatus.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes et des méthodes de décontamination d'un drain chirurgical et de son réservoir. Un appareil se présente sous la forme d'un récipient ayant une chambre intérieure et une ouverture expansible vers la chambre intérieure pour l'insertion d'un drain chirurgical à travers celle-ci. Des émetteurs de lumière ultraviolette sont disposés à l'intérieur de la chambre intérieure pour émettre des faisceaux de rayonnement ultraviolet au niveau du drain chirurgical et/ou de son réservoir, ce qui permet de tuer ou de neutraliser les bactéries et les champignons sur le drain. Des parois formant l'ouverture expansible sont pliables pour venir en butée contre une partie du drain inséré lorsqu'il est inséré dans l'appareil, et un joint étanche aux fluides est formé entre le drain et l'appareil.
