Neurology is concerned with the diagnosis and cure of disorders related to the nervous system including peripheral, vegetative and central nervous system. Neurosurgery is a sub-field that involves operative treatment of lesions that occupy space in any of the organs that make up the above-mentioned three areas of the nervous system.
These lesions may be some malformations, tumors, injuries, infections, or hematomas. This type of surgery can be very complicated since it involves very sensitive and vital organs of the human body.
Even the most basic of surgeries in this department involve the spinal column, brain and spinal cord along with the peripheral nerves.
The surgeon needs to take extra precautions while handling any of these areas during surgery. The main objective is to protect the sterile field from risk of infection since such a surgery can take a long time to complete.
Because of this reason, finding the right surgical drapes for a neurosurgery procedure is key to ensure safety and success. Not only in neurology but in all departments infection control is the ultimate goal of any surgeon who is performing the procedure. To minimize the number of postoperative wound infections from the spread of bacteria, specialized patient drapes are required. One feature that must be provided by any surgical drape is ease of access so that positive results could be ensured. Another key area that needs attention is filtered collection of fluid during each surgical procedure, which can be made possible by using the right type of surginal drapes and kits.
Single-use neurology surgical drapes and kits are designed to achieve maximum protection against infections in all types of surgical procedures specific to this field.
These are made to be highly impermeable, which means they are completely waterproof. High grade material is used to manufacture these products because safety and robustness are of utmost importance in healthcare. A special reinforcement material is also used to provide more strength and fluid control. All drapes are easy-to-use and totally adjustable so that anyone may use them for single use and then discard to ensure maximum protection.
