Accidental suture needlesticks are the leading cause of sharps injury in the operating room. Suture needlesticks have been reported at rates as high as one in every 18 surgical cases, placing surgeons and OR personnel at serious risk of life-threatening infections.

 

Finger Incision Devices

One method for blood collection when very little blood is needed is the finger-incision method. These products have a hidden blade that incises the skin to a controlled, standardized depth. The device creates a shallow incision in the finger which cuts more of the capillary bed without cutting too deeply thus allowing blood to flow freely for a high quality blood specimen.

Finger Protection

This category features devices used to provide needlestick protection during gynecological and urological surgical procedures. These products facilitate suture placement and tissue dissection and can be used in surgical procedures of other specialties. They are radiopaque for identification during radiological studies.

 

Finger-stick Sampling

When only small quantities of blood are needed for testing a small sample of blood can be obtained by means of a finger stick. A finger stick describes the process of puncturing or incising the skin with a small sharp blade. The blood is allowed to pool on the finger tip and a small capillary tube is placed against the blood where it is apirated up into the tube.

 

Flu Syringe

The CDC has recommended all health care providers, as well as those in training for healthcare professions, be vaccinated annually against influenza. It is important that institutions use safety syringes when administering flu shots to their employees.
