Abstract

See full text

A device for the prevention of contamination of medical personnel from a patient's body secretions that may splash back during wound irrigation. The splash shield has a peripheral edge that is substantially circular. The splash shield has a flat center region which forms the middle of the splash shield encircled by an outer concave region. The outer concave region curves away from the flat center region. A peripheral edge is located at the rim of the outer concave region. The peripheral edge is flat and extends outwardly from the outer concave region in a plane substantially parallel to the flat center region. A hollow conical protrusion extends through the splash shield at a point eccentric to its center. The conical protrusion has a base that lays flush against the flat center region. As the conical protrusion extends away from the flat center region, it tapers to a top surface. Moving along the conical protrusion from the base to the top surface, the cross-sectional diameter of the aperture defined by the conical protrusion decreases in length. The cross-sectional diameter of the aperture defined by the conical protrusion is dimensioned such that a friction fit is created between the interior of the conical protrusion and the flexible tip of a syringe when inserted therein.
