Perioperative care refers to the three phases of surgery: preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative care. Its goal as it relates to the patient’s skin that is to be incised is to provide optimal conditions before, during, and after the operation, because whether a surgical procedure is minimally invasive or highly involved, one constant remains, the patient’s skin will be compromised.
Now, and for the first time ever, nurses, surgeons and patients have access to a comprehensive approach to perioperative skin protection and care. Covalon’s Perioperative Care brands, MediClear™ and SurgiClear™ offer a continuum of care throughout the patient’s surgical journey. From pre-procedural protection from the patient’s own skin bacteria [a leading cause of Surgical Site Infections (SSI)] through post op antimicrobial infection prevention and incision site visibility to finally reducing the severity of the incision scar, Covalon’s products can help.
ONE PERIOPERATIVE NURSE FROM A U.S. HOSPITAL STATED:
“We continue to maximize using the dressings (SurgiClear), not just on sternal incisions, but now also all thoracotomy incisions, vein harvest incisions (if there is a large incision), and CT site incisions. My surgeons are very happy with the reduced number of infections we have seen over the last year.”
Covalon’s perioperative care brands follow the patient through their surgical journey with a seamless combination of products that bring unparalleled patient compliance, unmatched comfort, and undeniable protection.
