Providing single use alternatives to replace difficult to clean reusable surgical instruments, Single Use Surgical are travelling to Arab Health next month to educate the marketplace about their products and meet with potential distributors from across the UAE.

Already used in over 400 hospitals in the UK, Single Use Surgical guarantees a sterile and undamaged instrument every time. Owing to their difficult to reach internal surface, reusable cannulated instruments are often difficult to clean posing a risk of cross-infection to patients.

The cost of treating one patient with a Healthcare Acquired Infection caused by an unclean surgical instrument can equate to the cost of several months of single use suction tubes so the use of single-use instruments is logical.

Manufactured in clean room environments, Single Use Surgical instruments match the look and feel of reusable devices. Designed after consultation with ENT, Neuro and Maxillofacial surgeons, the instruments have the same functionality, look and feel as traditional instruments and are used across a range of surgical areas.

In the UK single-use instruments are recommended for high-risk procedures including surgery on the brain and spinal cord. With over 80 devices produced in a range of diameters, lengths and bends, the ergonomic design features of Single Use Surgical instruments ensure the best quality and control for surgeons during delicate procedures.

With distributors across the globe, including Australia, South Africa and the US, Arab Health offers Single Use Surgical the opportunity to meet with potential business partners from across the Middle East, as well as the chance to catch up with existing contacts.

Kate Mulvana, Export Manager, Single Use Surgical, said:

“Last year was a great success and very encouraging in highlighting the Middle East as a key market for us to distribute our high quality single use instruments. We are hoping this year‘s Arab Health will allow us to make more people aware of the advantages of our instruments and the benefits they have.”

Arab Health is the largest healthcare exhibition in the Middle East and takes place between 25-28 January 2010 at the Dubai International Convention Centre.
