Quicker Healing, Better Outcomes
Contained Wound Irrigation System
What is the ComfortHeal Contained Wound Irrigation System
The Comfort Heal contained wound irrigation system is a patented design fluid contained system that allows for pulse lavage wound cleansing treatment at any bedside location in rehabilitative facilities. The system consists of an abdominal (AB) and an extremity bag (EB) models used with any pulse lavage irrigator.
Disrupting Biofilm and Improving Wound Healing
General knowledge of wound irrigation requires high volumes of irrigation at a constant rate flow of 5-15psi.
Studies show that 8-12 psi is required to effectively flush wounds of debris and biofilm that are responsible for infections and prolonged healing. Syringe and bottle flushing methods cannot produce enough steady pressure for proper wound management in addition where typical wounds need in excess of over 3 liter of saline solution for wash treatment.
Benefits of Contained Pulse Lavage Wound Irrigation System
Portable - Wound Cleansing Can Occur at Any Bedside Location (Hospitals, Clinics, Nursing Homes, Homecare Without Risk of Contamination)
Proven to Reduce Biofilm by 86.9%
Can be used to eliminate Biofilm in conjunction with - Negative Pressure Dressings, Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatments
Never Exceeds 15 psi
Patient pain and suffering is reduced significantly
Reduces hospital and rehabilitation facility admissions and readmissions
3-speed or Variable Irrigation Control
Realized Cost Savings Over In-Hospital Care Cost effective - Eliminates cost and time of operating room debridement because Comfort Heal™ can be safely administered at the bedside
Frees Up Valuable Operating Rooms and ICU Ward Space
Increases Patient and Caregiver Safety
Splash Back Protection
Safe Non-Biohazard Disposal (No Free Flowing Liquid After Procedure)
AB Model (Abdominal)
The AB model is designed to adhere a water tight seal to the body for effective safe treatment of hip, back, sacral, and chest wounds.
A perforated sealed entrance tube allows easy access for a pulse lavage irrigator with various tips
Medical grade adhesive with size adjustable opening.
EB Model (Extremity)
The EB model is designed to contain and create a water tight seal around an arm, leg, hand, foot, and head wounds.
Collection bag with a one way valve collects all fluid away from the wound where a solidifier turns all contaminated fluid into a gel for safe easy disposal. The collection bag and solidifier can contain up to 6000ml of 0.9% saline fluid
Multiple access entrance tube
Medical grade adhesive
Pulse Lavage Irrigator
The pulse lavage irrigator all in one package (with tips) is designed to provide controlled powered irrigation during open orthopedic and general surgical procedures and for the cleansing of burns or wounds. Saline solution fluid is used in pulsatile action of the pump and helps to remove blood, tissue debris, biofilm and foreign matter from the operative or wound site.

Pulsed Lavage System Warnings
1.This device has been designed for single use only. Reuse, reprocessing, resterilization or repackaging may compromise the structural integrity and/or essential material and design characteristics that are critical to the overall performance of the device and may lead to device failure which may result in injury to the patient. Reuse, reprocessing, resterilization or repackaging may also create a risk of contamination of the device and/or cause patient infection or cross infection, including, but not limited to, the transmission of infectious diseases from one patient to another. Contamination of the device may lead to injury, illness or death of the patient or end user.
2.Do not resterilize.
3.Do not use in an oxygen-enriched atmosphere due to explosion hazard.
4.Do not incinerate the batteries as this can cause a risk to the environment.
5.Do not recharge batteries, put in backwards, or mix with used or other battery types as these actions may cause explosion or leakage leading to personal injury or can cause a risk to the environment.
6.After use, this product may be a potential biohazard. Handle and dispose of in accordance with accepted medical practice and applicable local, state, and federal laws.
7.Follow Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards or Universal Precautions for bloodborne pathogens (29 CFR-1910.1030). These may be found by searching the OSHA website at www.osha.gov.
8.Use continuous suction at 60-100 mmHg to keep operative or wound site clean.
Contained Wound Irrigation Bag Warnings
1. Single use only. Do not reuse, re-process, re-package.
2. Do not eat the solidifier in the collection bag or let it be in direct contact with open wounds.
3. Use sterilized medical scissors when cutting the adhesive area for use.
4. After use, roll the bag carefully to prevent leakage of the content and dispose of it.
5. The adhesive is medical grade yet it may cause allergic reactions depending on users.
