SmartPump® tourniquets feature automatic intraoperative documentation, optimal performance, long battery life, and intuitive controls. SmartPumps automatically document intraoperative tourniquet data in the form of a Tourniquet Report. This AORN compliant report is printed on a two- by three-inch self-adhesive label, which attaches to the patient record.
The GETINGE T-DOC Asset Management Systems are the instrument and equipment tracking systems are designed to help facilities maximize productivity and make purchasing decisions based on statistical information accumulated in the computer database. Users can track and manage surgical instrumentation and its use, by investing in a complete tracking system that utilizes bar code capabilities.
Today, more than any other time in history, mankind is putting an inordinate amount of faith in machines and technology. We are awakened in the morning by a machine, a machine prepares our coffee, and we take another machine to get to work where we utilize machines all day long. Technology and modern machinery undoubtedly make our lives easier.
The Thermo-Lite® Hypothermia Prevention System is designed to keep patients warm by reflecting back the body’s radiant heat, thus eliminating convective heat loss. It is recommended for use throughout the surgical journey: preoperatively, intraoperatively, and postoperatively. Strong and supple, this nonconductive, radio translucent material is easy to use, transports readily, and is disposable.
The Medical Solutions, Inc. Fluid Warming System assists medical facilities in reducing the risks associated with inadvertent hypothermia by monitoring and displaying fluid temperature, and documenting the length of time fluids have been actively warming. The system also features time/date technology and offers controlled warming.
The ORS-2000 Series Intra-operative Irrigation Solution Warmers rapidly warm irrigation solution in the sterile field, thereby eliminating the need to use a blanket warmer. The ORS-2000 Series safely maintains solution temperatures taking the guesswork out of managing the temperature of solution that is poured into a back table basin or graduate.
Kimberly-Clark has introduced two universal thermal pads that enable rapid application of temperature management and greater flexibility in pad placement on patients. These small- or large-sized rectangular pads are designed to be placed anywhere on the body where there is intact, well-perfused skin.
The Hopkins® II 5-mm telescope offers improved optics and a larger number of fibers to deliver significantly increased brightness and enhanced image quality. A new double-lumen stainless-steel shaft makes the 5-mm telescope significantly more durable, which can help reduce repair costs. Advantages of the 5-mm telescopes include distortion-free images, sapphire lenses for autoclavability and scratch resistance, clear images through the entire depth of field, and a 5.
Designed to protect rigid scopes, this scope protection sleeve is completely reusable and made of an autoclavable polymer. The sleeve is designed to accommodate the most delicate rigid scopes measuring 5.0 mm and smaller. To accommodate length, the scope sleeves attach to one another for protection of longer scopes.
The VersaStep Plus Access System provided safe and controlled non-bladed entry that reduces abdominal wall complications and patient injuries including port site abdominal wall bleeding, decreased abdominal visceral and vascular injuries, and reduced post-operative pain. The access system, which incorporates proprietary Step Radial Dilation Technology, provides a consistently smaller fascial defect and superior port fixation by gently spreading tissue during port insertion as opposed to cutting or “grinding” through it.
The autoclavable HD EndoEYE videolaparoscope features a 10-mm outside diameter and a working length of 390 mm, making it ideal for use on even the largest patients. Offering a 30 degree and 45 degree direction of view, the HD EndoEYE utilizes proprietary distal tip technology to provide optimal image quality with increased durability compared to traditional rod lens systems that transfer the image through multiple interfaces.
The BIORAPTOR Suture Anchor was developed to facilitate minimally invasive arthroscopic repair of the hip joint. This device represents the first option for labral repair of the hip. The tiny anchor, threaded with ULTRABRAID Suture, is implanted into the bone of the cup of the hip joint, and enables the surgeon to close a tear or tighten labral tissue as required.
Bemis SharpSentinel sharps disposal containers are designed for the safety of both patients and staff. A variety of sizes allow staff to select the right unit for the application.

The “Total Sharps Safety System” is comprised of three products. The disposable Weighted Safety Scalpel which has a lockable safety shield that slides over the knife blade when not in use, and is available in #3 (Long) handle, #4 handle with #20 blade, and Carbon Steel blades. The Z-Tray, a true “safe zone” passing tray with oval shaped sides and staggered bottom that offers easy pick up, which provides for the hands free transfer of sharps and is now available in an extendable tray to accommodate long instruments.
Horizontal Entry Sharps Containers give health care workers the luxury of hands-free sharps disposal and reduce needlestick injuries. These containers feature a safety chamber that rotates when weighted and safely releases sharps into the container, preventing the need for excessive handling of these hazardous materials.
