Microbiology Test definition: A laboratory procedure to detect microorganisms in a sample.
Adhesive Strips, General-Purpose definition: Precut adhesive strips designed for general patient care use (e.g., to cover a small bandage, to affix two surfaces together). Most general-purpose adhesive strips are made of woven fabric (e.g., cotton), plastic, paper, and/or other material.
Scanning Systems, Ultrasonic, General-Purpose definition: Ultrasonic scanning systems that include an ultrasonic scanner and transducers (e.g., 3.5 and 5.0 MHz). Many systems include dedicated software (e.g., obstetric/gynecologic calculation package), an image recorder (e.g., videocassette), and a printer; other systems send the images directly to a picture archiving and communication system. These systems generally use transducers with linear array and mechanical or electronic sector scanning configurations. General-purpose ultrasonic scanning systems are used for general radiology purposes, including abdominal and obstetric/gynecologic examinations; most of them include additional transducers to facilitate specialized procedures such as small-parts, vascular, and endorectal examinations. Optional capabilities, such as Doppler and color flow mapping, and additional analysis software packages (e.g., vascular, urology) are usually available.
Cryosurgical Units, General-Purpose definition: Cryosurgical units designed for use in general surgical procedures, such as in dermatology, oral surgery, gynecology, urology, otolaryngology, and proctology.
Scanning Systems, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Full-Body definition: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanning systems that allow imaging of all areas of the body, and whose magnetic fields usually range from 0.5 to 1.5 Tesla. The patient is accommodated in a long bore, typically 55 to 60 cm (22 to 24 inches) in diameter and 1.5 to 2.0 m (5.0 to 6.5 feet) long. Full-body MRI systems also include "open" or "accessible" units with a cylindrical bore that is 75 cm (30 in) or greater in diameter or a rectangular bore that is 100 cm (40 in) or wider; these units may also incorporate a design with open sides.
KIT, ENEMA, (FOR CLEANING PURPOSE) definition: An enema kit is a device intended to instill water or other fluids into the colon through a nozzle inserted into the rectum to promote evacuation of the contents of the lower colon. The device consists of a container for fluid connected to the nozzle either directly or via tubing. This device does not include the colonic irrigation system (Sec. 876.5220).
Purpose definition: What something is used for; reason or intention.
Cabinets, Storage, General-Purpose definition: Cabinets designed for storage of miscellaneous products in a healthcare facility. This furniture typically consists of metallic, wooden, or plastic cabinet that may include shelves, drawers, compartments, and/or doors; all surfaces should have appropriate finishes or coatings to facilitate easy cleaning. Healthcare facility storage cabinets are available in a variety of sizes and configurations (e.g., upright, wall mounted, above or under the counter) and they are used in clinical and nonclinical areas of healthcare facilities to store a variety of products that do not have any particular storage and/or other special requirements for long-term time preservation.
