All medical facilities, be they public or private, require an array of specialist medical equipment and supplies, from humble latex gloves to the most technologically advanced pieces of specialist equipment imaginable. Philippine Medical Supplies have an extensive range of the most popular medical equipment and supplies required by healthcare professionals, or individuals with a need for such equipment.
Latex gloves are a basic requirement for all healthcare facilities, and are used in a wide range of other industries as well. They are also found in many homes. Latex gloves provide better elasticity than nitrile, and greater puncture resistance than vinyl. They offer protection against a wide range of substances.
Chromic sutures, or stitches as they are more commonly known, are absorbent and sterile, and made from purified connective animal tissue. They are used in the medical profession for soft tissue and ligature applications. Whilst they provide effective wound support for between 10 and 21 days, they can take up to 90 days to fully dissolve.
Dental Lidocaine is used in dentistry as a local anaesthetic. Lidocaine is used now as a common replacement for the previously popularly used Novocaine. It’s half-life in the body lasts about 1.5 to 2 hours. The liquid is usually rubbed into the gums or cheeks to numb the mouth prior to dental treatment.
Another basic consumable found in a wide range of healthcare facilities is micropore tape. It is commonly used to dress wounds and secure medical tubing. It can help in reducing post-operative scar formation. Its composition helps the skin breathe, whilst protecting it from stenting. Stenting occurs when a wound pulls the skin, resulting in a thick scar. micropore tape has the added benefit of being more easily removed than some other adhesive tapes, and leaves less sticky residue.
Castor oil is a natural product, derived from the Castor seeds. It is used in a variety of industries; in cosmetics, textiles and as a massage oil amongst many others. In the medical industry, it is a laxative, a cathartic and a purgative medicine.
Adult Diapers are another of the basic consumable items you are likely to find in most healthcare facilities, as well as in other establishments such as care homes for the elderly or similar places. Adult diapers are required by those suffering from mobility issues that make going to the toilet difficult, as well as sufferers of incontinence, dementia or severe diarrhea.
