For improved infection control
Haines® Medical Australia’s Single Patient Use Tourniquet - Paediatric offers a simple, cost effective alternative to disposable tourniquets as they can be used for the duration of the patient’s stay, and most patients find them just as comfortable.
Why switch to single patient use tourniquets?
A recent study examined 100 reusable tourniquets after use on patients’ arms and found that.
61 per cent of reusable tourniquets were colonised with bacterial species not normally found in the upper arm area. Multi-resistant organisms (MROs), including the superbug methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), were found in one quarter of the tourniquets.
