The mention of medical supplies to many people creates an impression of items that are only relevant in professional medical set-ups and for use by medical professionals. But this is not always the case. There are many items that though branded "medical" can be used at home by patients as well as the general population.
A few of such equipment are described below.
Batteries come in handy in many different situations. Doctors sometimes use portable monitoring equipment that in the absence of power uses batteries. Such monitoring and examination equipment can include:
Medical equipment that run on batteries need a reliable battery that is light but stocks a comparatively big power pack At home people who need to monitor their blood pressure also need a reliable battery that is guaranteed not to leak and which can remain charged for a long length of time. Other home appliances that can run on batteries can benefit from the reliable lithium Duracell medical batteries.Batteries
Trauma bags come in different holding capacities. They may also be made of materials of different densities but acceptably tough materials. Most of these bags are made of tough nylon material. In this bag there is room to keep items that can be used in an emergency by medical people or at the home. It is not unusual to see people helplessly milling around at an accident site not knowing what to do. A well-stocked professional trauma bag is not only relevant for a medical person rushing out to attend to an emergency but for the conscientious motorist and home owners who are aware that the unexpected can happen at any time.Bags and Packs
Keeping dry for bedridden patients is of great importance. Not only does it maintain a patient's dignity, but it also helps in the prevention of serious complications such as bed-sores. But not all people with incontinence issues are in hospitals. Those who are at home and have incontinence can also benefit from reliable briefs and diapers and associated items that will keep them dry. This will not only give them self-confidence but can also give them a chance to play active roles in their communities.Incontinence Products
Doctors need to keep off germs as much as possible. Personal hand care is important and that's why reliable soaps, creams and lotions are important. Recurrent contact with gloves, powders and disinfectants can leave the skin rough and ugly. A good soap, cream or lotion will help to avoid this situation. These products that are good for hospital use are just as good for home use.Hygiene Products
How many times has a small home accident occurred and you felt helpless for not having a single item to manage the situation? It's true that in an emergency you can improvise to manage a bleeding cut for example. But the fear of contamination is always there. Having wound and skin care items at hand can help save such a situation. Sterile bandages, sponges, pads and tapes can save your day or a neighbor's when called upon to assist in a home accident.Wound and skin care products
Blood pressure monitors, stethoscopes and thermometers are more often than not associated with medical people and hospitals. But do you need to go to hospital every time you need your blood pressure or temperature checked? Not necessarily, especially if it is routine blood pressure checks between hospital visits. A simple manual or digital blood pressure machine can save a lot of anxiety about how your blood pressure is behaving. Small children can be playing one minute and running a fever the next. A simple analogue or digital thermometer at home can help a parent to decide on the action to take under such circumstances.Vital Signs Monitoring Equipment
