Medical
French term or phrase: orifice proximal, capuchon d'injection
concerning heart catheters:
Purgez l'orifice proximal a travers le capuchon d'injection.
Suzanne Flynn
English translation:Purge the proximal orifice through the injection cap
Explanation:
Below is a site on jugular catheters. The site is actually on veternary medicine, but it has pictures of the devices, which might help.

The other is for an atrial catheter (in humans).

"proximal orifice" is standard medical terminology and simple means "the nearest orifice" (proximal = opposite of distal "farthest")
