Abstract (en)

[origin: WO03065883A2] A sanitary support device for holding medical instruments during a medical procedure. The device includes a receptacle having a closed end relatively isolated from the environment and an open end adapted for passage of at least a portion of a medical instrument into its closed end, and a mounting member or other support for mounting the receptacle adjacent the patient, e.g. to an item commonly found in hospital rooms, etc. The receptacle may be of a single- or multi-piece design. In a multi-piece design, a lower portion of the receptacle is fixed to the mounting member, and the upper portion of the receptacle is removably supportable thereon. The receptacle may include a notch having sidewalls spaced for pinching the instrument's tube to disrupt a vacuum flow. A removable liner may be held by the receptacle or a portion thereof to prevent cross-contamination among patients.
