Procedure Kit/Trays, Anesthesia, Paracervical
Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (either custom or standard) needed for providing local anesthesia into the area around the uterine cervix (i.e., paracervical). Items in these kits usually include a procedure needle, a trumpet needle guide, gauze pads, underpads, sterilization indicator, a speculum, dilators, and anesthetics (e.g., bacteriostatic saline/buffered lidocaine). 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. Paracervical anesthesia kits and trays are intended for use in the block of paracervical nerve roots during minor gynecologic diagnostic and/or therapeutic procedures (e.g., removal of genital warts, vulvar biopsy, laser treatment of lesions, hysteroscopy).
