Disposing of fluid and secretions of the patient during surgery is one of the most important issues that are taken seriously in each treatment center to prevent the spread of infection and to protect the patient and the hospital staff.
Hospital staff is also exposed every day to hepatitis B virus (HBV), acquired immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and other dangerous pathogens.
An engineered control system that can help prevent fluid and secretion during surgery is the use of a disposable suction bag with gel-making powder. With this process, overflow, pouring out, or vaporizing are minimized which ultimately results in a significant reduction in the spread of the infection and also increase of the safety of the patient and the hospital staff. Currently, in most advanced countries, the collection of fluids and secretions during surgery is performed by this disposable suction bag.
In this regard, Abadis Medical Reservoirs Company with several years of experience produces disposable suction bags using European modern technology; these suction bags can be used for:
– Plastic Surgery
– Breast surgery (to prevent accumulation of blood and lymph)
– Orthopedic Surgery

Abadis Reservoirs Company History
The group of managers of Abadis Company has been awarded the ISO-13485 Management Quality Standard for Medical Equipment and Customer Satisfaction and ISO 10002 for a renowned name.
Based on years of experiences, the company has covered a wide range of devices and equipment in centers of the Ministry of Health and Medical Education, Military and Private Hospitals, and Medical Centers and Medical Clinics.
One of the important goals of Abadis is the control of nosocomial infection. At the very beginning of its establishment, Abadis considered national production and self-sufficiency as an mission, and with a faculty of university professors and experts and expert engineers in 2013 produced the national disposable suction bags with brand Abadis, which in its kind, it is for the first time in the world and now is the only Middle Eastern manufacturer, which in turn took an important action in controlling the nosocomial infection in Iran.
In order to achieve its national production goals, Abadis is now ready to serve all hospitals in the field of controlling nosocomial infections with a new generation of suction disposable bags. In recent years, new buildings have been built called Hospitals that provide patients with a variety of diagnostic and therapeutic services, but sometimes these actions will inevitably lead to nosocomial infections, which may even result in death of patients. It may be very frustrating that a patient, after being hospitalized and recovering from the illness, when he is discharged and go to home, he may bring new infections from the hospital!
Nosocomial infections are one of the problems not only of hospitals but also of the whole country. The incidence of these infections, which is reported at least 9.1% to more than 25%, indicates the rate of the disaster. One of the most commonly reported infections in the hospital and the most commonly reported infections in the ICU and CCU is pneumonia, which has the highest mortality rate in nosocomial infections and the highest maintenance costs compared to other infections.
Another common infection is in the surgery ward. It is estimated that in the equipped centers, two to five percent of the patients undergoing surgery are infected with the infection of the site of surgery.
There are three main ways to prevent the infection from getting to the patient’s body:
1- Removing or restricting reservoirs of organisms;
The results of the research indicate that Iran is in a bad condition in terms of controlling nosocomial infections. Unfortunately, we do not have accurate statistics in this area, but according to international statistics, more than two million people every year suffer from nosocomial infections, however, nosocomial infections affect most of countries and not only Iran.
According to world-wide statistics, $ 17 to $ 29 billion in a year is spent on the treatment for nosocomial infections, while it can be saved with appropriate investment in controlling nosocomial infections.
According to unofficial statistics, $ 12 to 14 billion annually is spent on nosocomial infections in Iran, while there are still hospitals and medical centers in the country that disinfect their tools in old ways.
Nosocomial infections are important in terms of mortality and morbidity, longer hospitalization periods, and the imposition of care and diagnosis costs. Research results in the United States show that from every 100 hospitalized patients, five to seven people get nosocomial infection, which in some wards, such as ICU, is up to 50%; nosocomial infections also cost $ 4.5 billion a year in the United States. According to global statistics, nosocomial infections kill 19,000 people annually. Patients hospitalized in wards of infectious ICU, transplantation, burn, and surgeries are at higher risk to get nosocomial infections, so the nosocomial infection control committees focus more on these wards.
The control of nosocomial infections in Iran has not a long history.
Despite the fact that infectious disease control records have been available in Ahwaz and Shiraz universities and then several hospitals in Tehran since 1971, however, only in 1980, the issue of controlling nosocomial infections was considered, and prevention and control programs were started. There has been a little study by university centers and hospitals on the status of these infections in the country. In order to establish a national care system for nosocomial infections, the first meeting of the National Committee for the Control of Nosocomial Infections was held in 2002 at the Center for Disease Control and was followed up by the professors, experts and scholars. During the discussions of the National Committee, it was stipulated that the universal standard methodology would be the basis for the detection of nosocomial infections. This decision was taken after considering the opinions of all experts and professors of universities across the country in 2004. At present, studies of nosocomial infections in the country are reported to the Center for Disease Control, but reports do not cover all hospitals in the country. By establishing a national hospital care system in the country since 2006, it is expected that all public and private hospitals will regularly report the statistics of nosocomial infections with the same definitions and forms to the Center for Disease Control.
Infection Control Goals
– Reducing the rate of nosocomial infections
– Improve the health of staff, patients and all clients
– Prevent contagious, chronic and debilitating diseases for all staff
– Reduce the cost of treatment of nosocomial infections (such as prolonged hospitalization, patient return to hospital, legal problems)
Particular goals for controlling nosocomial infections
– Establishing a political commitment for senior officials of the country on the importance of controlling nosocomial infections and supporting the implementation of its care system
– Complete the coverage of the nosocomial infections care system via the establishment of infection control committees in all public and private hospitals
– Training and retraining of human resources involved in the program in hospitals, both medical and administrative ones, with the aim of increasing their awareness of nosocomial infections and microbial resistance trends in order to engage them in the implementation of programs of the prevention of nosocomial infections
– Optimizing and equipping hospitals with materials, supplies and equipment for controlling nosocomial infections using information of care system
– Supporting applied research in the field of controlling nosocomial infections
As we all know, the medical community is increasingly using disposable equipment, which it can be an important factor in reducing the transmission of infection. Suction glass that has been used up so far is one of the tools that can transmit infection. This type of glass should be evacuated after use, which could be a threat to the transmission of infection to the operation room staff, as well as causing infectious fluids to enter the sewage system, which will also cause harms. Abadis Company has offered new ways to prevent the transmission of infection in suctions. The company replaced disposable bags and the gel-making powders with suction glasses, and has taken an important measure for improving infection control and reducing the cost of water, electricity, disinfectant, manpower, and so on.
Abadis Company has recently brought the product to the Iranian market.
Increased consumption of disposable tools in the future; “Health and sterility”, “easy to use”, “psychological impact, because the patient feels he is specially paid attention to”, and “being economical” are the features that make the use of disposable tools increased in the future and hospitals and health centers like this equipment more than sterilized equipment.

Disposable suction bags
Since 1984, the issue of standard precaution has been raised globally:
In general, all fluids and secretions of the body, whether containing or not containing blood, are considered infectious, and are subject to general standard precaution.
Disposable suction bags and infection control
A suction bag is a disposable bag that is widely used as a disposable collection place for liquid waste with the installation of the special tank of the reservoir.
Mostly the substance is in the bag include lymph, blood, pus and wash water at the injury site. It is a very dangerous and virulent substance and should be eliminated in the best method.
