How to Choose a Needle Trap
When selecting surgical tools for any operating room, there is a sense that using the same products every time, from one year to the next even, is the best route to go. However, many hospitals and surgery centers are recognizing that new products can help them to solve some of their biggest and most worrisome challenges. A needle trap can be one of those solutions. Though there are several styles on the market, there are a few key things to look for in them before making any buying decision.
Consider the Details of the Trap
When choosing a needle trap, there are a few key areas to look at. First, you want to look for a style that gives you options in how to attach it to the drape or the volar side of a barrier. You also want to consider whether it fits the size requirements you have – not all products will be as flexible to fit most needs.
Next, consider exactly how it works. Some of the easiest products to use are designed to allow the user to just peel off the backing or liner and stick it to the surface desired using the adhesive pad. This is easy to do and rather simplistic for more users.
Ease of Use Matters
When choosing these traps, there is much to think about, but choosing just any is not ideal. Look at how easy the system is to use, how easy it is to apply, and how easy it is to implement into the current processes you are using right now.
The best needle trap is one that you can comfortably use for most of your patient’s needs. If you are unsure if you are using the right product now, look for an innovative new solution that can offer improvements.
