Hygie’s smart body fluid management systems rely primarily on absorption. The absorbent system includes a range of products that solidifies liquids within seconds. This system captures fluids directly at source, then their safe disposal without risk of cross-contamination. This simple and effective solution controls excreta-transmissible infections by protecting both healthcare professionals and patients.
The product range of the absorbent system is as follows:
The super-absorbent pad is used in all Hygienic Covers® and allows to solidify body fluids within seconds. This eliminates many significant physical and environmental risks to patients and staff, including: spills, splashing, soiled linens and clothes; transport to dirty equipment premises; cross-contamination, the survival of harmful bacteria in the patient’s environment; as well as human errors in body waste management. The super-absorbent pad also avoids the risk of improper cleaning of care equipment.
The super-absorbent stick helps secure the handling of hazardous biomedical waste by eliminating potential contamination related to medical containers such as suction canisters. Made of the same material as the super-absorbent pad and covered with a water-soluble film, it allows to solidify the biological fluids effectively.
The super-absorbent powder solidifies all liquids within seconds. It absorbs up to 300 times its weight in fluids and body materials. It is used to absorb liquids in a variety of situations including spills in different hospital units and long-term care facilities. It’s sprinkled directly on the liquids, preventing them from spreading and facilitating handling steps.
