The present invention is a continuous irrigation system for medical applications, including transurethral resection procedures, which provides automatic bag switching. It includes: (a) a first and second liquid irrigation bag; (b) a first proximal tubing and a second proximal tubing extending from the first liquid irrigation bag and the second liquid irrigation bag, respectively, and (c) a control valve device. The control valve device includes: (i) a main housing having a hollow body and a top and a bottom; (ii) an outlet located on and extending downwardly from the bottom for attachment of distal delivery tubing thereto; (iii) two inlets, located on or near the top of the main housing for the first and second proximal tubing; (iv) a floatation valve for opening and closing the second inlet. There is a distal delivery tubing connected to the outlet.
The present invention relates to an ergonomic urological catheterization/irrigation tray. The tray includes a tray structure having a recessed area that includes at least a bottom, opposite side walls, a front and a back, wherein the front has a first width of a predetermined dimension and the back has a second width of a predetermined dimension less then the first width, such that the recessed area is wider at the front than it is at the back. The recessed area has at least one drain located at a lower area thereof. The tray further includes a top flange extending at least outwardly each of the opposite side walls, wherein a user may rest the flange on front upper portions of legs when in a supine position, for urinary bladder evacuation into the tray. Surgical kits contain the aforementioned tray and specified components.
A disposable diaper with wireless alarm system includes a) a disposable diaper structure; b) a disposable diaper telltale conductive strip; c) an attachable, removable, reusable battery-powered sensor-transmitter device; and d) a wireless receiver with an alarm signal. Multiple diapers with different frequencies and optional disconnect sensors may be included and controlled by local or remote computer.
The present invention is a ureteral catheter-foley catheter connector adapter for connecting ureteral catheters to a foley catheter-foley collection bag arrangement. It includes a main body having a top and a bottom and a first hollow orifice located therein with an inlet at the top and an outlet at the bottom of the main body. The main body has at least one shoulder extending outwardly therefrom, and each shoulder has at least one orifice therein forming a shoulder inlet. The shoulder orifices are connected to the first hollow orifice of the main body. The shoulder inlets include connecting mechanisms for fixedly connecting the shoulder inlets to ureteral catheters. These may be tapered walls for force-fitting the ureteral catheter distal ends, O-ring fittings, flexible neck portions of the shoulder inlets or other mechanisms. The present invention is also directed to a system which includes at least one ureteral catheter, a foley catheter, a foley collection bag and the connector adapter.
The present invention involves a urethral fluid application device and system for insertion of fluids with backflow prevention. The device includes a tubular member having a feed port at one end and an outlet port at the opposite end, a unidirectional channel connecting the two ports and a one-way valve permitting flow only from the feed port to the outlet port. The device also includes a flange about the tubular member for contact with and attachment to the glans penis, as well as attachment means located on the flange. The system includes both the device and a supply container with a nozzle adapted to interconnect with the feed port of the device.
An inflatable patient transfer roller mattress is described for moving a patient from a first platform to a second platform. It includes a top sheet and a bottom sheet capable of being selectively sealed together, a set of parallel inflatable rollers and at least a pair of manifolds. Each roller has a pair of necked-down ends for introduction of an inflation gas, the rollers being formed by sealing selected areas of the top sheet and the bottom sheet together. The opposing, inflatable manifolds are for delivery of an inflation gas to each roller, and each manifold is disposed adjacent to and in gaseous contact with each necked-down end of the rollers, the manifolds being formed by sealing selected areas of the top sheet and the bottom sheet together.
