IS YOUR REPETITIVE, MANUAL FILL-AND-FLUSH METHOD HURTING MORE THAN JUST YOUR HAND?

True wound care deserves more than a squirt or splash.

Seven minutes and 65 squirts from a syringe later not only is your patient's wound no better for the effort, but neither is your wait-time in your emergency department. What if you could deliver high-volume wound irrigation in seconds at a precise pressure, one you were confident would remove bioburden and prevent risk of infection?

Acute Wound Irrigation Perfected in Less than Sixty Seconds.

Do your patients' acute wounds deserve more than a squirt and a splash?

Utilizing facility's oxygen or medical compressed air, IRIG-8 provides a 400% faster irrigation process over tedious fill-and-flush methods for improved ergonomics, compliance and throughput.

Healthcare facilities attend to over 14 million patients with traumatic skin injuries annually, of which 4-6 million patients with acute wounds come through the emergency department, representing a significant portion of ED cases.

Wound infections resulting from inadequate debridement and irrigation cost the U.S. upwards of $2B annually. With an overall 7.2% wound infection rate and as high as 23% for lower extremity wounds, a complete irrigation solution should be as effective in removing infectious debris as well as splash.

IRIG-8: Consistent Pressure and Flow for more Consistent Outcome

General practice and knowledge of proper wound irrigation requires high volumes of irrigation solution at a constant flow rate of 5-15 psi to effectively flush wounds of inorganic debris and biofilm adherence which are responsible for infections and prolonged healing. However, many methods for irrigation only prevent splash contamination and lack the ability to deliver a steady flow of irrigant at a constant pressure in a timely, ergonomic fashion.


Evidence in medical literature concludes that wound irrigation of 8-12 psi is necessary to overcome the adhesive forces of bacterium. Bulb syringes and other syringe or bottle methods with a pressure range of .05 to < 5.0 psi simply cannot produce enough steady flow force for adequate acute wound management. The additional challenge is to accomplish this ergonomically and efficiently in your fast-paced ED.

decrease bacterial load using irig-8

In an American Journal of Emergency Medicine published study of lab simulated wounds, the patented IRIG-8 Wound Irrigation System led to a 14.0% decrease in bacterial load while a syringe with a splash guard led to an 11.5% increase in bacterial load.*
