Jan 08,2024 / Industry News / Author: ShengKui

Wet wipes have a variety of uses in the medical field, playing an important role in patient care, operating rooms, medical device cleaning, and more.
Patient care:
Body cleaning: Medical wipes are used for body cleaning of patients, especially when patients cannot undergo traditional water washing, such as bedridden patients, disabled patients, etc. Wet wipes can effectively remove surface dirt, maintain patients' personal hygiene, and reduce the risk of infection.
Facial Cleansing: Suitable for cleaning the patient's face, helping to maintain the cleanliness and comfort of facial skin.
Operating room use:
Patient Skin Preparation: In the operating room, wipes are used to clean the patient's skin at the surgical site as a necessary step before surgery. By effectively cleaning the surgical site, you can reduce the risk of surgical infection.
Hand cleaning of medical staff: Medical wipes are also used by medical staff to clean their hands in the operating room to ensure the cleanliness of their hands and prevent hand contamination.
Medical device cleaning:
Instrument surface cleaning: Medical wipes play an important role in cleaning the surface of medical instruments. Before use, medical staff usually use wet wipes to clean the outer surface of medical equipment to ensure the cleanliness and sterility of the equipment.
Cleaning of testing equipment: Medical equipment such as blood glucose meters, blood pressure monitors, etc. often need to be cleaned. Wet wipes can be used to wipe down these devices regularly to prevent cross-contamination and ensure accurate test results.
Use in special circumstances:
First aid cleaning: In emergency situations, wet wipes can be used for emergency cleaning of patients to remove blood or dirt around wounds and reduce the risk of infection.
Infectious disease control: Medical wipes also play a role in infectious disease control, with medical staff using wipes to clean patients' skin and help isolate and prevent the spread of infectious diseases.
