Dispensable medical instruments are enjoying increasing popularity among practitioners of various specialties. The primary advantages associated with dispensable vaginal specula include:
With multiple-use vaginal specula, the whole process entails the following steps:
Time necessary for the entire process (depending on the number of patients) – up to 1.75 hrs/Day
Dispensable specula help to avoid many time-consuming routines, as their use is limited to merely the following three steps:
Dispensable vaginal specula do not generate additional time-consuming routines for your healthcare facility
Efficient sterilisation of multiple-use instruments, including vaginal specula, is essential to minimize the risk for healthcare-associated infections. Yet, some infectious agents causing serious if not terminal infections (e.g. a variation of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease) are resistant to the standard decontamination process.
Dispensable equipment warrants a 100% clean and sterile product for every single patient, thus allowing to substantially limit the risk for cross infection.
Multiple-use medical instruments must be sterilised with chemical substances considered to constitute environmental hazard. Throughout the sterilisation process strong detergents, disinfectants and solvents are used, that later become hazardous waste.
Repeat sterilisation nearly always requires the use of ethylene oxide or anti-microbial agents that are dangerous for the environment.
By using dispensable vaginal specula, you can limit the scale on which substances hazardous for the environment are used.
