Tobin Eyewash System
TOBIN'S EYEWASH SYSTEM is a well proven, quick and safe way to wash chemicals from eyes.This specially designed system gives the fastest possible application combined with a liquid volume large enough for most eye accidents.
The bottle hangs by its cap. To open simply break off the cap. An unopened bottle can be removed/replaced in the stand at will. An open bottle cannot be replaced in the stand.
When the bottom airvent is activated it lets air into the bottle and insures the eye is washed by a soft continuous flow that can be stopped by placing the thumb over the bottom hole.
Eye Support Ring
The integrated support ring facilitates ease of use during prolonged washing when transporting a patient to a doctor.
The eye is washed by a soft flow consisting of 6 tiny streams. A damaged eye must not be washed with a hard/sharp jet.
Why a dedicated eyewash system?
Chemicals in the eye can cause serious damage within 1-5 seconds. Washing that begins within a few seconds can therefore be decisive in minimizing the damage the eye will receive. It is also of utmost importance that an eyewash system is easy to use and that the exposed eye is washed by a soft flow, both features are engineered into every Tobin bottle. The patient needs just one hand to operate the bottle and the eyewash system empties under natural pressure, the flow cannot be increased by squeezing the bottle.
Duration of eyewash
One Tobin Eyewash System bottle gives approx. 3 minutes of washing time and a regular five bottle stand delivers the recommended 15 minutes of washing. Auxiliary bottles can easily be removed from the stand and taken along during patient transportation to a doctor. After opening, the Eyewash bottle must be used within a few hours or thrown away. When left unopened each bottle has a 3 year shelf life, and the expiry date is clearly marked on each bottle.
The regulations governing sterile liquids are rigorous. The bottle cannot contain any bacteria during its shelf life. Tobin Eyewash system and all Tobin eyewash liquids are completely sterile during their shelf-life and comply with these demanding regulation standards: SS-EN 15154-4:2009, SS-EN 556-1:2006, ISO 17665-1:2006 and ISO 13485:2016.
