US-based Centurion Medical Products has launched the new wound irrigation system IRIG-8 for acute wound management in emergency room.

The sterile, disposable IRIG-8 system is claimed to enable quick delivery of irrigation solution in high-volumes to acute wounds with customisable, constant and effective pressure.

The new system aims to address concerns with traditional syringes with splash caps, using them can be time consuming and sometimes they do not achieve constant fluid flow under effective pressure, causing infection-causing organic and non-organic debris or biofilm adhesion to be retained.

Centurion president and chief executive officer Tom Archipley said: "The IRIG-8 System delivers the two constants that are known to provide thorough acute wound cleansing, generous amounts of irrigation solution delivered at optimal pressure, in most cases in less than 60 seconds, which standard bottle splash guards and tedious fill-and-flush syringe methods simply cannot achieve.

"Clinical evidence supports these two factors in achieving optimal results and that is what Centurion is delivering, best practices for the best patient outcomes."

"With 14% less bacterial load, IRIG-8 allows one-handed use and connection to any style oxygen or medical air outlet flowmeter."

The new irrigation system can deliver upto one litre of irrigant within 60 seconds and achieves adjustable, quantitative and dependable pressure at an optimal 8-12 psi.
