Protection for the Human Eye
The human eye is equipped with an automatic lubricating and cleansing mechanism, called the lacrimal system. It consists of the lacrimal punctum – a drain which channels excess fluids away from the ocular surface. The lacrimal punctum drains excess fluids directly into the nasal cavity. This process is the reason why your nose runs when you cry.
If a chemical is introduced into the eye, nature’s own cleansing mechanism can serve to force the contaminant into the nasal cavity, where it can potentially cause further internal injury. The ideal approach in chemical or particulate eye injuries is to sweep contaminants away from the lacrimal punctum.
The AXION® MSR – Medically Superior Response Technology
- Solves the 3 most common Compliance Issues by providing:
1. Simultaneous flow
2. Non-injurious controlled flow
3. Even eyewash flow patterns
- Injury Reduction
To aid in reducing unnecessary injury, the trademarked inverted eye/face wash water streams gently flush contaminants away from sensitive glands and ducts that surround the eye.
- Integral Flow Control
Predictable eye/face wash stream heights and laminar flow provide consistent pressure for greater user comfort. Flow controls within the showerhead regulate the flow rate to ensure water is available for the eye/face wash to allow for simultaneous use.
- Victim Comfort
The hydrodynamic showerhead design minimizes the strong physical pressure by releasing smaller discreet droplets and spinning the water inlet makes the distribution even across the entire footprint of the flow.
