Medical Supply

The suppliers supply different kids of medical equipments, like mentioned below.

 

Tongue Depressor

A tongue depressor is a device used in medical practice to depress the tongue to allow for examination of the mouth and throat. The most common modern tongue depressors have thin wooden blade, smoothed and rounded at both ends, but historically tongue depressors have been made of a variety of materials. Since they are inexpensive and difficult to clean, wooden tongue depressors are normally labeled for disposal after a single use. Hobbyists and teachers have found a multitude of uses for tongue depressors in their projects.

 

Earlier versions of depressors were made from balsa, pine or redwood woods. Instances exist from the American Civil War, made from wood and metal.

 

Medical Thermometers

Medical thermometers are used for measuring human body temperature, with the tip of the thermometer being inserted either into the mouth under the tongue (oral or sub-lingual temperature), under the armpit, or into the rectum via the anus (rectal temperature).

 

There are different kids of thermometer.

* Liquid-fill thermometer.

The traditional thermometer is a glass tube with a bulb at one end containing a liquid which expands in a uniform manner with temperature.

 

* Mercury.

Mercury thermometers have long been considered the most accurate liquid-filled types. However, mercury is a toxic heavy metal, and mercury has only been used in clinical thermometers if protected from breakage of the tube.

 

* Electronic.

Since compact and inexpensive methods of measuring and displaying temperature became available, electronic thermometers (often called digital, because they display numeric values) have been used

 

* Remote.

Other electronic thermometers work by remote sensing: an infrared sensor responds to the radiation spectrum emitted from the location. Although they are not in direct contact with the area being measured, they may touch part of the body (a thermometer which senses the temperature of the eardrum without touching it is inserted into the ear canal).

 

* Contact and more

Electronic thermometers may work by contact (the electronic sensor is placed in the location where temperature is to be measured, and left long enough to reach equilibrium).

 

Blood Glucose Meter

A blood glucose meter is an electronic device for measuring the blood glucose level. A relatively small drop of blood is placed on a disposable test strip which interfaces with a digital meter. Within several seconds, the level of blood glucose will be shown on the digital display.

 

Needing only a small drop of blood for the meter means that the pain associated with testing is reduced and the compliance of diabetic people to their testing regimens is improved. Although the cost of using blood glucose meters seems high, it is believed to be a cost benefit relative to the avoided medical costs of the complications of diabetes.
