'Gold Standard' in Single-Use Suctions on Display at Medica

By Single Use Surgical | 11.16.16

Single-Use Surgical introducing an extension to its Sinus Suction range.

The manufacturer of the world’s largest selection of single use suction devices is showcasing the "gold standard" in specialist single-use suctions at this year's Medica trade show, held Nov. 14-17 in Düsseldorf, Germany.
New to its ENT range, Single Use Surgical is also introducing an extension to its Sinus Suction range. The new suction incorporates a gentle 60-degree bend for improved access during functional endoscopic sinus surgery.
Developed with surgeons for surgeons, Single Use Surgical offers a choice of disposable Sinus Suctions that are designed to suit each case. Their lightweight, ergonomic handles are available with or without a control hole, with a choice of tip styles and sizes, including the new 60-degree bend. Each suction tip is atraumatic for patient safety, as well as curved for maximum visibility and improved reach in difficult to access areas.
Single Use Surgical was established in 2001 as a direct response to United Kingdom hospitals’ concerns over the cleaning practices involving fine lumen instruments, and the high risk of cross contamination it posed to patients.
Since then, the company has developed a range of specialist single-use suctions capturing the same look, feel and functionality as the reusable equivalent. Unlike many other disposable instruments, Single Use Surgical manufactures its products with stainless steel tubes rather than aluminium; a factor that has helped the company capture a large share of the single-use medical device market. The company's range spans many specialities including ear/nose/throat, head and neck, gynecology, laparoscopy, and general and vascular surgery.
“We are delighted to be coming to Medica 2016 to showcase our range of surgical solutions,” Export Manager Michael Denver said. “Many of our innovations provide improved ergonomics and functionality, as well as consistent quality and a safe alternative to reusable instruments. Each product is developed to ensure cost savings for hospitals, which means surgeons do not have to compromise on quality.”
