Bra Strap Ring Pouch

Bra Strap Ring Pouch

Do your surgeons and staff place their rings on a necklace or tie them to their scrub pants during a case? Now they can secure their rings to their bra straps with the Joleo ring pouch, invented by a surgical tech who used to slide her engagement ring and wedding band on a giant safety pin and close the pin around her scrub top — until one day she went home without the rings. Joleo's deep pocket secures rings and a Velcro strap fastens the wrap around the bra strap so only the wearer knows it's there.

Reusable Double End Acetabular Reamer Brush

Reusable Double End Acetabular Reamer Brush

This reusable doubled-ended reamer cleaning brush, which is made with a latex-free thermoplastic handle and bristles, pulls double duty. On one end, the rounded style circular head brush lets you clean out the inside of a reamer. Meanwhile, a rigid straight brush cleans the individual cutting holes on the reamer's other side. The rigid fibers of the Double End Acetabular Reamer Brush can also assist with debris removal, says the company.

A Pain Pump Patients Can Customize

A Pain Pump Patients Can Customize

When you send patients home with an ON-Q pain pump for up to 5 days of continuous pain relief, they can customize their post-op pain therapy depending on their pain level by adjusting the flow rate on the Select-A-Flow dial. Patients can also give themselves an additional dose of analgesia for breakthrough pain relief by triggering the OnDemand bolus pump.

Automated Scope Dryer With Increased Airflow

If it's airflow you need to dry the internal channels of an endoscope after reprocessing, it's airflow you'll get with the Dri-Scope Aid Jet~Stream, which now has the most HEPA-filtered air airflow on the market, says Tricor Systems. The standalone system features a dual timer that lets the operator hook up 2 endoscopes (all major brands) with independent start and stop times. You simply attach the scopes to the daily tubing assembly via the connectors, set the required time (1 to 99 minutes) and press the start button to initiate a continuous flow of HEPA-filtered air through the scope(s), freeing the technician for other duties.

The eBay for Outdated Sterile Supplies

The eBay for Outdated Sterile Supplies

Instead of pulling your expiring or unneeded surgical supplies off the shelves and disposing of them, now you can sell them at a discount to another surgical facility. Surgical Exchange Network's online platform lets hospitals and surgery centers list for sale sterile surgical supplies that they cannot use. Pricing for items are between buyer and seller, but the company suggests listing items at 50% of retail to entice buyers to go outside their normal supply chain. Only licensed healthcare facilities can subscribe, says the company.

Safely Transport Long Laparoscopic Instruments

Safely Transport Long Laparoscopic Instruments

Keep your long laparoscopic instruments organized and safe during sterilization with the XL Transport Container, the latest addition to InstruSafe's Instrument Protection Trays. The XL container protects larger, delicate and costly robotic instruments from the OR to sterile processing. It features an inner gasket, lid and 4 silicone latches to reduce spills, and a drain to accommodate soiled liquid removal.
