Additional Protection During COVID-19 

Additional Protection During COVID-19

Wolf X-Ray Corporation has expanded its line of protective wear to meet your current PPE needs with Safe-T-First face shields. Made from quality sourced materials, Wolf's face shield provides added protection against airborne droplets. The blue forehead band is cushioned and latex-free, ensuring comfortable protection during long shifts. Paired with a mask, this scratch resistant, anti-fog shield with front and back peel-off layers adds an additional barrier against viral infection and prevents absentminded face-touching.

It's Time to Change Your Bandage 

Additional Protection During COVID-19

DrySee bandages are revolutionizing wound care, allowing patients to bathe and function freely after surgery with peace of mind that their wounds won't be compromised. These waterproof bandages have an outer ring and inner gauze pad that turn dark blue when wet or when wounds leak, signaling to patients that their bandage needs to be changed. Made in the United States with 100% USP cotton, DrySee bandages are available in three sizes, can be worn for up to three days, provide protection against bacteria and decrease bandage waste.

Keep Large Cords Covered During Cases 

Keep Large Cords Covered During Cases

Help to keep your surgical team upright in the OR with Ansell's SANDEL Trip-No-More disposable cord cover, which is now available in a 12-inch width. The cover's bright orange color makes it hard to miss and it's easy to apply — simply cut off the required length from the cut-to-size roll, peel off the cover's adhesive backing and secure it to the floor. The cover peels off the floor easily after use and leaves no sticky residue. A 10-inch cord channel and an adhesive-free center makes it easy to adjust cords as needed during use.

Your Surgeons Will Love These Gloves

Molnlycke offers a new glove that promises to reduce allergic contact dermatitis among surgical teams brought on by frequent handwashing and exposure to occupational chemicals. The Biogel PI UltraTouch S surgical glove is made without chemical accelerators that are an additional cause of contact dermatitis. A skin-friendly formula reduces the risk of hand irritations while offering the same precision and tactile sensitivity needed in a surgical glove, says the company.

4K Monitor Rounds Out LCD Display Series

This 32-inch multifunctional monitor from Sony combines 4K UHD resolution, installation flexibility and ease of use with advanced features, high dynamic range (HDR) support and a variety of display modes. The LMD-X3200MD is the latest in the company's lineup of 4K LCD monitors, which includes its flagship 31-inch model (the LMD-X310MD) and the compact 27-inch monitor (the LMD-X2700MD). The latest monitor features new "Sony-unique" Advanced Image Multiple Enhancer (A.I.M.E) technology, which the company says allows users to adjust the color, contrast and visibility of dark areas — and achieve shadow, structure and color enhancement. Its flat, edge-to-edge design allows the monitor to be easily cleaned and disinfected.

Simplify Sterile Processing Documentation  

Simplify Sterile Processing Documentation

Your reprocessing techs must follow strict processes and procedures that must be diligently documented — a time-consuming process susceptible to human error. Surglogs released Sterile Processing Records, a user-friendly module that centers on maintaining a proper sterilization program on the cloud, to make the task easier. It allows you to set up multiple machines and view all entries in a searchable table view. These entries can be sorted by day, sterilizer ID and other user-selected parameters. You can also take pictures of sterilization load receipts and track instruments with the customizable supply inventory feature.
