They say a picture is worth 1,000 words. Introducing Bio Pants! The latest lymphedema innovation
They say a picture is worth 1,000 words. Introducing Bio Pants! The latest lymphedema innovation

I know it doesn't exactly match my navy blazer, but I still decided to put on the latest lymphedema product at our recent Wipeout Wounds event in Fort Lauderdale this week. This product comes from my good friends at Bio Compression Systems, and specifically addresses not only the lower extremities, but also the difficult to treat areas of the groin, buttocks and abdomen for patients suffering from lymphedema. This 8 chamber all-in-one pant offers a unique design covering the entire lower body. This garment is designed to redirect tissue fluid movement from the foot all the way to the auxiliary nodes and thoracic duct for drainage while creating new channels. Sizing is not a problem for this garment, each patient is custom fitted to insure an ideal treatment is delivered each and every time. With two front zippers and easy to use pull-up straps, this garment is simple to don and doff for every single patient. The Bio Pants provide the best possible solution for the most difficult conditions. This garment is an accessory to an 8 chamber device.

Bio Compression Systems is a great family owned company based out of New Jersey. They manufacturer all of their products in the USA at their own facility (which I love!), offer the best warranties in the industry, and are number 1 in compression therapy in the HME/DME market.

Aseptic vs Clean Technique in Healthcare

Aseptic vs Clean Technique in Healthcare as discussed by Janette Ostrander, National Clinical Sales Manager for Dynarex Corporation. Click Here for a printer-friendly version to easily distribute to your staff.

Aseptic vs Clean Technique

Clinicians perform different procedures using different techniques. Example: Surgery requires strict aseptic technique. Aseptic Technique requires the use of various barriers to prevent the transfer of microorganisms from health care personnel and the environment to the patient during a procedure. The following personal protective equipment may be used:

  • Sterile gloves
  • Sterile gowns
  • Sterile drapes
  • Masks

Involves procedures for patient and equipment preparation, such as the following:

  • Antiseptic skin preparation of the patient at the time of the procedure
  • Sterile instruments
  • Sterile equipment
  • Sterile devices

Includes environmental controls, such as the following:

  • Keeping doors closed during operative procedures
  • Minimizing traffic into and out of operating rooms
  • Excluding unnecessary personnel during procedures

Only sterile-to-sterile contact is allowed; sterile to non-sterile contact must be avoided during the procedure. 

Example: Central line insertion.

Clean Technique involves reducing the number of microorganisms to minimize the risk of transmission from the environment or health care personnel, using the following:

  • Appropriate hand hygiene
  • Clean gloves

Efforts are made to prevent direct contamination of supplies and materials. Patient's environment undergoes routine cleaning. Sterile-to-sterile rules do not apply, although sterile equipment is used as indicated.

Supreme Medical carries a full-line of personal protection products and can assist your facility and staff with any products you may need on hand to combat infection prevention.

Did you know that Supreme Medical has worked with some of the biggest names in Hollywood & TV?
Did you know that Supreme Medical has worked with some of the biggest names in Hollywood & TV?

Supreme Medical has created sets for both Grey's Anatomy and Project Runway! We're proud to have ABC Studios and Bunim/Murray Productions as two of our valued customers. 

 

Most recently, we worked with Project Runway All Stars Season 5 for an episode called "Fashion 911" that aired during 2016. In this episode, the designers were tasked with constructing high end fashion dresses from materials used by EMS professionals. Supreme Medical was selected by Bunim-Murray as their vendor for this set. We provided all the medical supplies used during this unconventional challenge. These included products such as: exam gloves, tongue depressors, cotton tipped applicators, cohesive bandages, urinary leg bags, cotton balls and all other kinds of med-surg supplies that you would never guess could be used to create a look for the runway. If you look closely at the picture above, you can see 3 dresses that were constructed out of medical supplies from the Supreme Medical warehouse. This includes a dress made completely from blue, purple, and black nitrile exam gloves! Another designer used different color cohesive bandages to construct their runway look. We also loved the skirt constructed of nothing but cotton tipped applicators - it had a certain swag to it! These pictures are proudly on display in the lobby of Supreme Medical. If you ever come by to visit us and see our operations, be sure to check them out!

  • Reduce Overhead - Utilizing our home delivery service eliminates overstock, deadstock, expired\short-dated inventory, and the costs associated with managing a supply closet. Free up your staff from the burdensome task of keeping track of inventory so that they can spend more time seeing and treating their patients! Supreme Medical does the leg work for you and takes care of all the logistics. 
  • Fixed Cost for Shipping - Supreme Medical offers a nationwide flat rate of $ 7.95 per order for home delivery. Some product exclusions apply, see flyer below for details.
