Standard disposable sterile scalpels offer convenience in a number of user environments be it on the ward, in emergency or trauma units or even out in the field with the paramedics.
These blades consist of pre-assembled stainless steel surgical blades mounted on an ABS plastic handle with fluted finger grips. The blades are safely protected by LDPE guard.
These scalpels are individually packed in a peel-open paper/ poly pouch packed in a box of 10 sterile, disposable scalpels.
Package: 10 sterile scalpels per dispenser box
Advantages of using the surgical disposable scalpel
Using a sterile disposable scalpel can reduce or even prevent the incidences of:
Injuries during the removal of blades from re-usable handles
Occupational illness arising from cross infection (particularly of highly infectious and life threatening diseases such as HIV/ Aids, Hepatitis B, C) caused through injuries sustained during the removal of blades from re-usable handles
These scalpels are meant for one time use only. The sterility of a freshly opened disposable scalpel is assured
After using the disposable scalpel(s), the contaminated blades can be easily covered with the protective caps or guards, then safely disposed of in the Operation Theater/Room Disposal Container. There is no risk of puncture, due to this convenient and easy way of disposing the sharp blades
Being a ready-to-use “sterile” product is useful for immediate surgery
