Laparotomy Sponges

Laparotomy sponges, also referred to as a lap sponge, is an absorbent pad that is used during surgical procedures, especially operations involving the abdominal region. The sponge assists in keeping the surgical site free of body fluids such as blood, providing surgeons with a clear field of view and clean work space. These things are essential for a successful surgery to be performed. A laparotomy sponge can also be used to cease blood flow by applying pressure onto the bleeding wound.

Laparotomy sponges are widely used in hospitals, operating rooms and emergency rooms and first aid. Any application that involves absorption or wound compression would likely have use for a laparotomy sponge.

  Sponges are available as either sterile or non-sterile. Sterile laparotomy sponges can be applied directly to the wound. Non-sterilized sponges are used to soak up fluids when there is no direct contact with the wound.

  Laparotomy sponges are available as either X-ray detectable or undetectable. If an x-ray detectable sponge is left in a body cavity, it can easily be identified, located and extracted. In an invasive, surgical setting, the x-ray detectable variant should be used. Devices such as laparotomy sponges can cause a host of complications if not removed from the body.

Frequently Asked Questions

A surgical mask is meant to help block large-particle droplets, splashes, sprays, or splatter that may contain germs (viruses and bacteria), keeping it from reaching your mouth and nose. Surgical masks may also help reduce exposure of your saliva and respiratory secretions to others.

Clean your hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer before touching the mask. Remove a mask from the box and make sure there are no obvious tears or holes in either side of the mask.
The side of the mask that has a stiff bendable edge is the top and is meant to mold to the shape of your nose.

We don't recommend the reuse of disposable surgical masks that are intended to be used once.
