Cost Effective Alternative to Nosebleed Treatment:


 An inexpensive solution to solving problems with nosebleeds is to use these 4x4's which are impregnated with a hemostatic agent that is derived from an inert mineral found in red clay. Clinicians typically have to send a patient to an ENT for removal of the device from the nose, but with these 4x4s, they can be removed easily by the patient in the comfort of their home. This device can also be used to stop bleeding from fingertip evulsions, a/v fistulas, and anywhere else they are having trouble with bleeding or oozing.








A special spiral IV extension set similar to the old telephone cord design with male and female luer lock connections. It is a flexible product allowing patients freedom of movement. Tubing expands and contracts, length wise, as the patient's IV site moves further or closer to the IV fluid source point; minimizing potential trauma at the IV site. Great for pediatrics, MRI, oncology, etc. Made of a polyethylene material which allows for compatibility with commonly infused drugs and reduces adsorption, absorption, and permeation that may occur with PVC sets (what most extension sets are made of in the U.S.). It is also a high pressure rated (to 580 PSI) set! These come in two different diameters and five different lengths (100cm, 150cm, 200cm, 300cm, 400cm) in each diameter. Priming volumes range from as low as 1.1ml to 6.9ml depending on tubing diameter and length. These lengths are how long the sets are the maximum stretch distance.




Troop Elevation Pillow

Troop Elevation Pillow (TEP): The TEP is an airway management positioning system. The TEP was developed by an anesthesiologist to aid airway care of obese & morbidly obese patients. It optimizes the patient's airway for an easier intubation as well as a better position for spontaneous breathing both during pre-induction (before intubation) and also post extubation in the O.R. and PACU. The device should stay with the patient for their intra-op and post-op care. The TEP is an aid to airway management in the O.R. ER, ICU, and OB or anywhere that airway management is taking place. The TEP is faster, safer, and better than creating a ramp with a stack or pile of blankets. Multiple blankets result in an unstable platform, and add significantly to the hospital's laundry expense. The Troop Elevation Pillow positioning system consists of a base unit (the Elevation Pillow or EP), an Addition, a Head Cradle and Elevated Arm Board Pads. For the majority of obese patients, all that is needed is the base unit (EP) and its head cradle (this is the (2) set). The (3) set: base unit (EP) + Addition + Head Cradle is intended for the Super Morbidly obese patient > 450 pounds. Per design, the base unit (EP) must be used with its head cradle or any standard hospital head rest.

Single Use Disposable Laryngoscope Blades and Handles:

We carry a full line of single-patient disposable laryngoscope blades and handles, from a 000 to a 5. Help prevent cross contamination while using the brightest light source to illuminate the trachea for a better visual.  


The Next Generation in Pulse Oximetry -A unique site that's been right under our nose

The nasal alar region offers a unique monitoring site for pulse oximetry. The Alar One-Sense(TM) Sensor fits comfortably on the nasal ala, the fleshy part of the side of the nose. This region has a rich vasculature system with a multidirectional blood flow fed by both the external and internal carotid arteries; the latter also providing blood to the brain. 



Earlier detection ...faster reflection of oxygen saturation changes

Better perfusion ...strong signal, less prone to drop out 

Unaffected by poor peripheral perfusion ...dependable 

Easy access to the alar site






Custom and Standardized Kits:

We carry standard and custom I.V. kits with needles access ports, as well las laceration trays and the like. 



IV Admin & Extension Sets: 

We can help make about any IV administration or extension set that you can dream up.  We also do Anesthesia admin sets and gang valve designs.
