Gauze Sponges (8 Ply) may be used in medical offices and hospitals for a number of general applications, including wound dressing, minor preparations, packing of wounds, general cleaning, and debriding. These gauze sponges are individually cut into squares for easier dispensing.
Made with 100% cotton, these gauze sponges are highly absorbent, making them an ideal choice for health practitioners and caregivers. They may be used to mop up spilled liquids, absorb drainage or eliminate excess moisture from the skin prior to treatment or dressing.
The cotton nature of the gauze sponges also minimizes pain during removal from wounds. They are ideal for use as dressings because their thickness helps prevent contamination from dust, heat, and bacteria that may potential cause infection.
Manufactured by Kendall, the only US-based gauze manufacturer in operation for over 100 years, you can be assured of the high quality and reliability of Covidien gauze sponges, which go beyond USP Type VII gauze requirements.
Choose from two available sizes, 2”x2” or 4”x4”, according to your specific needs. Each pack of Covidien Gauze Sponges contains 200 squares. Keep stock of these in your first aid kit or your medicine supplies cabinet.
