The KIMBERLY-CLARK Bariatric Drape is designed for safety and convenience. The drape's fabric is resistant to tearing, strikethrough and abrasion and has a maximum flame resistance rating, allowing it to be used around lasers and other electric instruments. To help reduce the risk of wound contamination and related post-operative complications the drape has a low-lint and abrasion-resistant fabric reinforcement. The increased overall width and length can accommodate larger patients with ease and the anterior hook and loop line control and lateral line control flaps optimize patient access and minimize the risk of safety hazards that could be caused by line tangling or slippage. The bariatric drape can be used in both laparoscopic and open bariatric procedures.
