Fran Hildwine, BS, NREMT-P, CCEMT-P | | Tuesday, July 28, 2009


All EMS vehicles should carry some type of sterile fluid for wound irrigation. Pouring fluids from a bottle often doesnÌt provide enough pressure to adequately irrigate a wound covered in debris. TheIRRIMAX Wound Irrigation System contains 450 ccs of sterile, 0.9% normal saline solution, which can be rapidly delivered in 23 seconds at up to 14 psi with manual compression of the bottle via a patented, multi-port, dispersed stream irrigation. A 7-cm diameter splash guard is designed to minimize or eliminate splash and aerosol contamination.
