Why go disposable?
Choosing a single use device rather than a reusable one brings several advantages to patients as well as healthcare professionals:
- Eliminates the risk of cross-contamination to patients and to healthcare professionals (1,2).
- Ensures immediate availability of the product. Resterilization, on the other hand, is time consuming and exposes the healthcare personnel to several hazards (biological, chemical…).
- Lowers the incidence of insulation failure compared to reusable devices (3).
