Providing the highest level of service and medical care entails the use of the most efficient tools on the market. Medical professionals are held to a rigorous performance standard; so are the devices and instruments that they use to facilitate care.
When it comes to surgical devices, more surgeons are switching from reusable instruments to single-use instruments. This stems from the need to enhance sanitation in the operating room and minimise risks of cross-contamination.
OBSERVING SANITATION IN CRITICAL OPERATIONS
Some reusable instruments have intricate and movable parts that are difficult or sometimes, impossible to properly clean. Reusing these instruments increases the risk of surgical site infections and cross-contamination.
On the other hand, single-use instruments are individually packed sterile and discarded immediately after the procedure. Apart from minimising cross-contamination, the use of disposable instruments eliminates the need for time-consuming and costly decontamination processes as seen with reusable instruments.
HIDDEN ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
You may think disposable items impact the environment however there is a large environmental impact caused by reusable instruments which isn’t often thought of. Large amounts of water, electricity and cleaning agents are required to run the decontamination of reusable devices and the pollution of these strong chemicals which aren’t biodegradable or recyclable like packaging, greatly impacts the environment.
To address these concerns single-use surgical devices have become a feasible alternative. One such instrument is Frazier suctions that are used in extracting bodily fluids.
Reusable suctions with their narrow cannulas and bends are very hard to clean and impossible to inspect and verify that they are clean. Studies show that reusable Suctions have caused cross-contamination and passing on crippling and life-threatening diseases like Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD). Disposable Frazier suctions are the safest option. A single-use suction guarantees that every operation will be performed with a clean and sterilised device. It also minimises the risks of breakage and re-straightening as seen with reusable devices.
After each use, the suction is disposed of. This reduces the costs and ecological impact of running decontamination cycles.
