Description

  • The The invention relates to a container for receiving surgical instruments with an opening having ground and with side walls, with storage elements for defined storage in the interior of the container and with one under the Instrument arranged packing template for displaying the position and type of in the container stored instruments.
  • Container this Type are used to make surgical instruments, implants and other medical equipment, hereinafter referred to collectively as "instruments" be collected, cleaned, sterilized and / or stored. It is essential to protect the stored instruments and to review the completeness the loading of a container to arrange the instruments in a precisely defined position in the container. For this purpose are usually Storage elements in the container arranged, which the inserted instruments in exactly defined Set position.
  • In order to indicate the correct position of the instruments and also to check for completeness, it is known to provide a packing template on the bottom of the container, be it in the form of a picture board inserted from above into the container, on which the instruments are subsequently placed, or in the form of imprints on the floor or pasted images (see the generic document US 6,783,004 B1 ).
  • Especially in soils, having the apertures to thereby gases for rinsing and Sterilisiervorgänge and liquids to flow through the container interior, Such a packing template may be troublesome as it obstructs the flow paths blocked. On the other hand, when printed on with openings provided floors Packing templates interrupted by the openings themselves are, and therefore may be do not submit the full information, the for inserting the instruments and checking the completeness would be necessary. In other cases The inserted information is to be accommodated only on small areas and therefore not in scale 1: 1 available, This would be but especially for the equipment of the container desirable.
  • It is the object of the invention, a container of the generic type so that on the one hand a complete and if possible Lifelike packing template is available and that on the other hand the flow through of the container too Purification or sterilization purposes through the packing template preferably is little impeded.
  • These Task becomes with a container The type described above solved according to the invention, that a side wall has an opening, through which the packing template from the outside into the interior of the container between Floor and instruments inserted and pulled out of this position again is.
  • On This way, the packing template can be used from the outside at any time container pushed in and pulled out of this again, too if the container loaded with instruments or if the container is closed with a lid is. The packing template may be formed without openings, when the openings of the soil come into operation, for example Flow through with washing liquid in a washing machine, that's enough it to pull the packing template out of the container and thereby to release the openings in the ground.
  • The Pack template can be pushed back into the container at any time, for example, to check the completeness the loading of a container.
  • From the Japanese publication JP 2001-224603 A a container is known per se, which serves to receive used sewing needles. The container is divided by partition walls into individual chambers, the bottom is inserted as a plate through a lateral opening in the side wall in the container, below the partitions. The purpose of this arrangement is to control items placed in the individual compartments and either magnetically attach them to the floor or let them fall out of the compartments when the floor is removed. However, this container can not provide any incentive to insert an additional packing template between the bottom and the surgical instruments stored in the container.
  • Cheap is if the packing template is plate-shaped and the opening in the side wall is slit-shaped are formed. In this case, for the lateral opening a very small cross-sectional area needed so that even in this area the container is essentially closed remains.
  • Preferably the packing template extends substantially over the the whole area of the soil, so that the images of the images to be inserted Lifelike instruments reproduced can be.
  • It is advantageous if the opening over the entire width of container extends.
  • In a preferred embodiment provided that the storage elements and the instruments maintain a distance from the ground, which is sufficient for insertion of the packing template. When inserting the packing template therefore no instruments must be pushed aside, but the space for inserting the packing template is available in any case, even if the container is loaded with instruments.
  • Cheap is it if the packing template of a heat sterilizable material Therefore, it may optionally in the sterilization in the container remain.
  • It can be provided that the packing template in the inserted state the opening in the side wall closes, for example, in that the packing template is so large, that they are also fully inserted with their rear Edge still in the opening is arranged. It could but also on the packing template an outside on the side wall and laying the lateral opening closing in the side wall contact surface be provided.
  • at another preferred embodiment has the opening an occlusive one Seal on, which opens the packing template during insertion. there could For example, it is a flexible silicone lip seal act.
  • It is advantageous if in such a case, the seal in the inserted Condition of the packing template is sealingly applied to this, so that the packing template on the Seal the side opening closes.
  • The following description of preferred embodiments of the invention used in conjunction with the drawings for further explanation. Show it:
  • 1 a perspective view of a trained as a basket container with inserted instruments and a pushed packing template;
  • 2 : a view similar 1 with partially inserted packing template and
  • 3 : a top view of the container of 1 and 2 with pulled out packing template.
  • The container shown in the drawing 1 is designed as a strainer with a flat, sieve-like perforated bottom 2 and with perpendicular thereto, also screen or net-like perforated sidewalls 3 . 4 . 5 . 6 , The floor is rectangular, between the long side walls 5 . 6 extend strip-shaped or strip-shaped storage elements 7 at their top to the shape of instruments to be placed in the container 8th are adapted and possibly also openings 9 have, through which the instruments 8th or parts of it can be inserted. That way the instruments can 8th in the container 1 be defined in a defined position.
  • The storage elements 7 are on the opposite long side walls 5 . 6 fastened and hold against the ground 2 a space free, that is their lower edge ends above the ground 2 , Also the instruments 8th are on storage on the storage elements 7 arranged so that they are with their bottoms at a distance from the ground 2 are arranged so that between the instruments 8th and the floor 2 a gap remains.
  • In this space can be over a slit-shaped, over the entire width of the container 1 extending and immediately above the ground 2 arranged opening 10 a plate-shaped packing template 11 be inserted from the outside, she enters completely into this space and lies down on the ground 2 on. The packing template 11 is essentially the same size as the ground 2 so that the ground 2 with inserted packing template 11 completely covered by this.
  • On the packing template 11 are the contours of the instruments to be inserted 8th shown in the correct position, there may also be more information about the instruments, such as type designations, sizes, etc., so that when filling the container 1 with the instruments 8th Immediately sees where and in which position which instrument must be inserted. Conversely, you can on the inserted packing template 11 Also check that all instruments are fully inserted in the correct position in the container or that instruments are missing.
  • The packing template 11 can through the slot-shaped opening 10 again from the container 1 be pulled out, even if the container 1 with instruments 8th is filled. It is therefore possible to allow the filled container to flow completely through, for example, washing liquid in a washing machine, one of the openings in the bottom 2 covering packing template 11 can advance through the opening 10 be pulled out of the container interior.
  • The packing template 11 can be designed so large that they in fully formed state with its rear edge the opening 10 fills in the side wall and thereby closes. It is also possible that the slot-shaped opening is closed with its own seal, for example by means of a flexible lip seal, which is opened by the plate-shaped packing template during insertion. In the fully inserted state, the seal can rest against the packing template and thereby close the lateral opening.
  • The packing template 11 preferably consists of a sterilizable material, so that they may be in the container during the sterilization process 1 can remain.
