Bacteria that occur naturally on the hair and skin without causing harm, can rapidly spread infection to a surgical wound and cause post-operative wound infections.  Sterile fields and drapes are used during operations to create a barrier between non-sterile areas and the surgery site, and to prevent microorganisms from entering wounds and causing dangerous, and sometimes fatal, complications.  Care Shop has several barrier drapes, dressing towels and hand towels, as well as sterile foil bowls and basin liners.


The key to maintaining a sterile field in the operating theatre is to isolate the surgical area by covering the patient’s body with impervious drapes, such as the Molnlycke Barrier Utility Drape, thereby shielding the wound area from non-sterile areas.  This 3-ply drape has proven infection control in acting as a barrier to microbes.


Sterile hand towels, such as Rocialle Sterile Hand Towels, are designed to be used before minor operations and general examinations.  They are individually wrapped and completely sterile.  Disposable dressing towels, such as Synergy Health Sterile Dressing Towels, are suitable for a variety of general ward procedures, as well as in theatre.  They come pre-folded in completely sterile, individual packs.
