What Are Surgical Products?


Surgical items are used to perform specific medical procedures, enabling medical professionals to carry out surgeries or operations safely and practically.

Depending on the procedure, different surgical items are required, without which some become extremely difficult, or impossible. Types of surgical instruments include:

  • Scalpels

  • Needles and Sutures

  • Retractors

  • Scissors

  • Forceps

The Role of Surgical Items in Humanitarian Crises


Surgical supplies can be of significant help in supporting humanitarian efforts in emergency situations, such as when countries are hit by natural disasters or affected by conflicts.

For populations that do not have stable access to resources, tending to wounds and performing operations that may be essential is not a without its difficulties, with some having to rely entirely on humanitarian relief missions and emergency medical equipment being provided.

Emergency trauma packs containing surgical disposable items have proven to be instrumental in helping with major trauma, allowing medical professionals to tend to significant injuries that may otherwise deteriorate and lead to death.

Highlight the vital role of surgical supplies are instances where severe wounds cannot be treated due these being unavailable, meaning that even where medical staff or trained volunteers are prepared to provide aid, they may not be able to perform life-saving procedures.
