Enware ZeoMed cytotoxic body-fluid spill kit

Tuesday, 24 July, 2012 | Supplied by: Enware Australia Pty Ltd

Enware Australia has released its ZeoMed cytotoxic body-fluid spill kit, designed to protect healthcare workers and carers from spills of body fluids from patients undergoing cytotoxic drugs treatment. The kit is applicable to healthcare workers and carers in hospitals, aged-care facilities, nursing homes, patient transport, medical facilities and even in veterinary practices.

Cytotoxic drugs are primarily used for treating cancer, but are also employed in the management of other medical conditions including multiple sclerosis, psoriasis and lupus. As the drugs are highly toxic to cells, workers who come into contact with the substances and related body waste are at risk of possible adverse effects. Cytotoxic biohazards may be present in the vomit, blood or other fluids from patients undergoing treatment.

The spill kit contains: 200 mg sachet of ZeoMed absorbent powder; two purple cytotoxic bags; red alginate bag; pH-neutral foaming detergent; chemosorb pad; scoop and scraper, and two cleaning cloths; face mask with eye shield, protective gown, hairnet, pair of shoe covers and two pairs of purple nitrile gloves; instruction sheet, cytotoxic spill sign and cable ties.

The clean-up powder contained in the kit incorporates a pure form of zeolite, a naturally occurring mineral whose absorbent properties make it suitable for a spill kit. The powder soaks up excess moisture, helping coagulate the spill, which is usually a combination of viscous and solid materials. The powder is quick acting and is also a natural absorbent of toxic and noxious odours. It is chemically inert, non toxic, ecologically safe and has no expiry date.
