Markers for Treatments and Surgery
Skin markers are used to mark areas of the skin, e.g. before surgical procedures or to apply bandages. With Praxisdienst, you will find an assortment of sterile pens at affordable prices.
Skin Markers to Mark the Surgical Field
Sterile pens are an important instrument in surgery, as they are used for marking surgical sites. Surgical skin markers are particularly popular in cosmetic surgery, amputations or the removal of skin changes. They are used for pre-operative marking of the optimal incision. To prevent skin irritations, one should only use markers containing skin-friendly, latex-free ink.
Most pens are equipped with a fine tip to ensure a low line width. Thick lines are unfavourable and should be avoided, especially when marking cuts. Typical ink colours for marking the skin are black, red, violet and blue, as these colours form a particularly strong contrast to the skin and are therefore very visible.
Surgical marker pens are often supplied with a ruler or a tape measure to measure the size of the operating field. Instead of drawing freehand, rulers can also be used during marking and allow for better documentation.
Skin Marker Pens for Drawing Lines
Especially in orthopaedics, surgical pens are a popular aid for doctors, as they make it easier to delegate dressings. With help of the medical pen, the circumference of the bandage is directly drawn onto the patient's skin. This way, the medical professional knows exactly where to apply the wound dressing. This comes particularly handy, if the bandage is not applied directly in the treatment room, but e.g. in the plaster room. Plaster casts and bandages like zinc paste bandages are generally applied this way.
In nuclear medicine, surgical skin marking pens are used to mark the X-ray region. After the examination, the ink can easily be removed with an alcohol swab.
