Lavage is the washing out of a body cavity with water or any medicated solution. Lavage kits are used in common gastric or rectal emergency situations where efficient lavage or flushing of the intestine or rectum has to be done. Cases of self-poisoning are being reported around the world. According to WHO, each year, pesticides lead to more than 250,000 deaths globally. Lavage kits flush out the stomach and prevent self-poisoning. Lavage kits are also used when a person is suffering from alcohol or drug overdose. Lavage kits clear out the digestive tract before surgeries, if required. Lavage kits are considered for the assessment of hematemesis by confirming blood levels from gastrointestinal tracts. Lavage kits act as a cooling technique for patients dealing with hypothermic medical conditions. Lavage kits are also used for the quick & easy evacuation of the digestive tract during a trauma situation such as facial trauma.
Lavage Kits Market: Drivers and Restraints-
Gastric conditions are increasing by the day. Medical gastric condition treatments include certain aspects, such as endoscopy, collection of stomach acids and pressure relieving in the intestines. These procedures require lavage kits. With growth in the number of gastric and rectal health conditions across the globe, the market for lavage kits is expanding. Poisoning cases have increased and deliberate self-poisoning has also been reported in several countries. However, alternatives, such as the administration of activated charcoal, are expected to be adopted instead of lavage kits because of better efficacy and reduced risk of complications. Lavage has to be performed 4-5 times for improved and better results. However, this is not required if activated charcoal is used. Sometimes, a combination of activated charcoal and lavage kits is used for better results and improved efficiency. In some cases, the performance of lavage is advised within 60 minutes of ingestion for efficient results, otherwise the procedure is likely to not be of any use.
