AquaVac® is an effective and economical solution for water control in the Operating Room during arthroscopic surgical procedures, as well as any surgical procedure that causes fluid to spill on the Operating Room floor.
AquaVac® is a mat fabricated from a special compound of high-grade rubber, precision-molded to ensure full contract and water seal with the Operating Room floor. AquaVac® uses standard Operating Room suction to remove spilled saline before it can pool and spread away from the operative area. AquaVac® has been tested and shown to remove 95% of spillage during arthroscopic surgery.
AquaVac® enchances surgeon comfort and surgical performance with improved footing on an otherwise wet Operating Room floor. Opearting Room turn-over time is greatly reduced by limiting the work required to clean and dry the surgical floor between cases. AquaVac® decreases liability for slips and personnel injury on the wet Operating Room floor. Rapid removal of potentially contamicanted body fluids in the Operating Room is an additional benefit of AquaVac®.
Use standard suction tubing to attach AquaVac® to a fluid collection canister, connected to operating room suction (18in. Hg). Push the common suction (18 in. Hg). Push the common suction port firmly against the floor to form a tight seal.
AquaVac® enables rapid removal of potentially contaminated body fluids from the operating room floor. Disposal of thorough cleaning of the AquaVac® at the end of each case and disposal at the end of the operating day is recommended to prevent the spread of viral and bacterial diseases.
Standard Operating Room disinfectant, clorox solution, as well as by cart-washer (the mats can withstand temperatures up to 220 degrees Fahrenheit)
AquaVac® should be stored in its carton on a flat surface at room temperature (60 to 84 degrees F). Do not store the shipping carton in its end, as the live-rubber of the AquaVac® will deform and will not seal flat to the Operating Room floor.
AquaVac® has a limited shelf life, during which time the rubber loses plasticizer and stiffens, thereby limiting the ability of AquaVac® to seal to the floor.
