As a leading supplier of sterile ENT Instruments, we receive a variety of feedback that we weave into our plan of innovation and product excellence. One of our largest goods is our variety of Crocodile Forceps that grow every year as a key part of our success. The demand for high-quality Crocodile Forceps originates from numerous sources, including the difficulty of cleaning, and the possibility of damage, losses, and shortages in one of the busiest clinical specialties, namely ENT Instruments. So what makes a flawless product that doctors will want to employ; here we analyze some of the detail that offers DTR Medical such an unequaled reputation.
Get a grip:
Forceps must grip is clear, but this is not given in the field of ENT Instruments supply where misaligned tips can imply the force needed to hold anything is excessive and not sustainable over an entire session. In the case of the finer characteristics, would a serrated jaw grab a suture vital to know. Several single-use scissors experience this and it is particularly crucial to be effective when such devices are utilized.
Does Size Matter?
Sure when their use is mostly ontological but ENT Instruments from different vendors have bothersome variances thus sometimes they are too short and hard to reach into the ear canal, or conversely too lengthy and not comfortable to use. Constant quality counts because consistency is a big component of the confidence we acquire from our customers.
Often Crocodile Forceps are used with an ENT Instruments Microscope and this implies the quality stands out more than for much other equipment. Everything is exaggerated so I will notice immediately when things are not right. Traditionally this has been an essential cause for the changeover to single-use and our role is to see we retain the quality even under such a focus. A high-quality ENT Instruments crocodile forceps will have no imperfections and it will be straight and true. With the associated usage of a bright light source, there is also a major necessity for the instrument to be non-reflective, usually as a consequence of a uniform coating of a matt black finish. Such a minor feature makes all the difference to the ENT surgeon who still has clear visibility of the treatment location, saving time and avoiding patient trauma.
Pattern makes Perfect:
A crucial instrument for the otologist, it has gained from improvement throughout the years. The surgeon needs to be able to choose the proper design for the task.
Speculate on Jaw size
Several ear treatments need the use of Ear Specula and some like Ovals have limited apertures only 2.5mm wide. These are popular for treating children where the ear canal and hence working space are greatly reduced. We learned this in our earlier days and our forceps all have jaws of 5mm or smaller.
For pediatric use or where good vision is vital, our Extremely Fine Crocodile Forceps feature a jaw size of 3.5mm by 0.9mm so they will fit easily into the smallest specula. Unsurprisingly, this is a very popular product utilized by many hospitals.
Does the Jaw open?
We may appear to be getting pedantic now, but from the feedback we hear, surgeons need the jaw to open adequately to fulfill the intended function; not all do! This shows that other suppliers compromise on quality which re-enforces the value we deliver to this single-use sector.
Width matters too!
The finest jaws can only be attained by having a slender shaft that still keeps the strength needed to hold the jaw in place when manipulated. Once again, our Crocodile Forceps all have sturdy and slender shafts that are no wider than the hinge point of the jaw. Anything broader means the working place is tougher to visualize.
Is it Clean?
Many of the Crocodile Forceps produced in the world come from the Far East where production standards often fluctuate despite regular checks. Our experience is that even the best vendors are unable to reach zero levels of contamination required before admitting products into our procedures. This is why we have a Cleanroom Production Facility in Wales to prevent particle and microbiological contamination.
Every ENT instrument of our Crocodile Forceps receives 100% inspection to ensure it is free from contamination that commonly arises from lint from cleaning wipes or metal filings during production. Whatever the source, these are unpleasant contaminants that we know our clients will not want to experience. The harm to the patient from even sterile bits going into a wound site is unacceptable in all situations. We want to inspire confidence and our reputation for quality and outstanding hygiene is very important to our consumers.
We set high requirements for all our products and crocodile forceps to have some of the tightest. To ensure we are supplying the appropriate goods, we do complete inspections and dimensional checks on every instrument. This manner fluctuation is low and we can verify the instruments are appropriate for the purpose.
This is expensive and time demanding, but is at the heart of what we aspire to give to our customers. “Without compromise” has been a characteristic of our promotion and this applies to Crocodile Forceps like everything else we do.
