Tongue Depressors & Cotton Swabs for the Surgery & Hospital
Tongue depressors, especially wooden tongue depressors, are popular consumables in surgeries and hospitals. Wooden tongue depressors are often used for inspection or examination of the mouth and throat areas, in order to provide a better view of the oral cavity.
Depressors for Hygienically Applying Ointments
Furthermore, tongue depressors are great for applying ointments or creams. By extracting ointment with a tongue depressor, the risk of contaminating the rest of the ointment in the storage canister is prevented. Wooden or plastic, single-use tongue depressors are especially economical, as they are immediately disposed of after use, eliminating any possible reprocessing costs.
Cotton Swabs for Smears & Exact Ointment Application
Cotton swabs are most often used for collecting smear samples, although they can also be used for precise ointment application. The long wooden rod makes the cotton swab particularly useful for throat swabs.
Oral Care Swabs & Oral Care Sets
Oral care swabs are used to clean and moisten the oral cavity, especially with bed-ridden or comatose patients. Most oral care swabs have an aroma, such as a lemon flavour. Therefore, the oral care swabs are also sometimes referred to as "lemon sticks."
