[L. irrigatio, watering]
The cleansing of a canal or cavity or the washing of a wound by flushing with water or other fluids. The solutions used for cleansing should be sterile and, for comfort, have an approximate temperature slightly warmer than body temperature (100° to 115°F [37.8° to 46.1°C]). When irrigation is performed for bleeding, cold or iced irrigant may be used.
