Procedure Kit/Trays, Anesthesia, Glossopharyngeal
Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (either custom or standard) needed for providing local anesthesia into the glossopharyngeal nerve. Items in these kits usually include sterile towels, gauze packs, a syringe filled with local anesthetics, sterile gloves, a marking pen, a needle for skin infiltration, and a bevel needle. The kits are frequently supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Glossopharyngeal anesthesia kits and trays are intended for use in the block of glossopharyngeal nerve roots during diagnostic and/or therapeutic procedures (e.g., laryngoscopy, esophagoscopy, bronchoscopy, tonsillectomy) and/or intubations.
