Medical scissors are used for bandage removal, suture removal and are great for first aid supplies. Express Medical Supply carries bandage scissors, surgical scissors and medical sheers.
Medical scissors can be useful for cutting through sterile gauze rolls, including Kerlix. Sterile gauze is used to cover incision sites in hospitals and in recovery at home. Kerlix is manufactured by Covidien.
Medical scissors also can be helpful with medical tape or surgical tape, which is used to hold gauze bandage rolls or wound dressings and can be easily removed without damaging the skin. Medical scissors work with non-woven gauze, which consists of fibers pressed together to resemble a weave. Non-woven gauze provides improved wicking and greater capacity to absorb.
