Wound Irrigation

Wound Irrigation

Wound Irrigation

Wound irrigation has typically been accomplished with a syringe and a hypodermic needle to generate the 8-12 psi fluid stream that is recommended for cleaning out wounds. This standard method, unfortunately, also showers the clinician with splashed irrigation fluid that is contaminated with the patient’s blood. This presents an unacceptable exposure to mucocutaneous splashes and the potential of an accidental needlestick from the hypodermic needle. New systems can quickly deliver irrigation solutions that can adequately cleanse the wound without the use of a needle.

Igloo Wound Irrigation System

With dual-exit portals that direct effluent removal away from wounds and a spray head that allows for continuous flow irrigation, the Igloo Wound Irrigation System is designed for convenient, safe wound irrigation.

Safe, Effective Wound Irrigation System

  • Insert tubing into saline bottle to clear away bacteria and necrotic tissue
  • Spray head delivers continuous, high-volume irrigation between 8-12 psi without the need to refill a syringe
  • Protects from potential back-splash contamination exposure
  • Shield’s dual-exit portals lead water and debris away from wound
  • Does not come with saline
  • Shield available separately; use with any standard luer-lock syringe
  • Sold only to Licensed Medical Professionals

ETHIGUARD* Blunt Point Needles

Protect yourself and your patients—without compromising performance
Better protection from needlestick injuries

ETHIGUARD Blunt Point Needle is an innovative solution that helps protect you and your patients from needlestick injuries, providing you with a better needle option.

A solution to a costly problem

  • Over 384,000 healthcare workers in the US suffer needlestick injuries each year, putting them at risk for hepatitis, HIV, and other serious diseases
  • The annual cost of needlestick injuries to hospitals is approximately $258 million
    • The follow-up costs for high-risk exposure needlestick injury is almost $3,000 even if no infection occurs

A 2007 New England Journal of Medicine study report found that 99% of surgical residents had at least one needlestick injury by their final year of training—53% involving high-risk patients

Four prospective randomized trials have demonstrated notable benefits from use of blunt suture needles

ETHIGUARD Blunt Point Needles and conventional taper point needles both have a 12:1 taper ratio

  • Choose protection without compromising performance
  • Decrease the incidence of injury
  • Blunt-point geometry allows for easy soft-tissue penetration
  • Minimize bleeding and tissue trauma

ETHIGUARD Blunt Point Needle does not cause any more additional bleeding or patient trauma than a conventional taper needle

Its heat-treated, stainless steel alloy delivers optimal strength and ductility to resist bending and breaking

Use with ease

  • ETHIGUARD Blunt Point Needle is proven to be effective and user-friendly
  • Increase precision
    • A ribbed and flattened body affords stability in the needle holder, for improved protection against slipping

“Though cost is often cited as a factor for not using safer devices, it is actually a savings when you consider the cost of treating the individual once a [needlestick] injury occurs.”

The value you need with the protection they deserve.

The adhesive material in DERMABOND® forms a strong microbial shield to protect wounds while they heal.

DERMABOND® wears off naturally during the healing process, which is usually completed within 7 to 10 days.

While you will not need an appointment to remove stitches, your doctor may want to check on your progress. Remember: only your doctor or other trained clinical professional can apply DERMABOND®.

DERMABOND® is ideal for:

  • Wounds in areas where skin is not being stretched or pulled.
  • Exterior, hair-free areas of the skin and areas not inside the mouth.
  • The face, but not too close to the eyes.

With Dermabond, a laceration does not need to be poked with a needle to numb the area. TheDermabond seals the wound better, making infection less likely. The scar is smaller than with sutures.

And it saves time. It takes a fraction of the time to apply compared with sutures. Sutures also require an extra visit to remove them-Dermabond does not.

Vial Adapters

Safety Product Category

Vial Adapters

Vial Adapters

The standard method of withdrawing fluid from a medicine vial unnecessarily exposes healthcare workers to needlestick injuries. This is typically done by pushing a needle into the rubber stopper of the vial and turning the vial upside. Air is injected into the vial. The syringe plunger is withdrawn pulling medicine into the syringe. After removing any unwanted air the syringe is used to make an injection. Newer devices eliminate the needle and allow withdrawal of medicine directly into the syringe without exposing healthcare workers to needlestick injuries.

Using a needle to withdraw medication from vials unnecessarily exposes healthcare workers to needlestick injuries!

Luer Lock Adapters


The Baxa Luer Lock Adapters with Spike are used for the reconstitution and aspiration of drugs in vials. This single-use product comes sterile and non-pyrogenic.
It provides true needleless access to both single and multi dose medication vials.

Instructions for use

Reconstitution:

  1. Attach access device to vial.
  2. Connect syringe with diluent to luer lock connector.
  3. Withdraw or add desired fluid volume.

Aspiration:

  1. To equalize the pressure of the vial, push an equivalent amount of air into the vial for the amount of fluid that is to be withdrawn
  2. Invert vial and withdraw desired volume.
