The Medi-Pak Alcohol Prep Pads are disposable wipes used to cleanse the skin prior to venipuncture. These wipes are saturated with seventy-percent of Isopropyl Alcohol to make it effective for sterilization for a range of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. The two-ply thickness of the wipe makes it very absorbent which helps it retain the alcohol. The wipe is made with a non-woven cloth that makes it incredibly soft to feel. The fabric of the wipes also makes them incredibly durable and helps maintain their integrity during use.
The Medi-Pak Alcohol Wipes are designed to be used by medical practitioners to cleanse a patient’s skin before injecting injections or other surgical instruments to that site. The alcoholic concentration in the Prep Pads is also beneficial for disinfecting medical devices such as stethoscopes or vial stoppers prior to drawing up medications.
The wipes are individually packed in foil packets in order to maintain their sterility. The wipes are available in different sizes to suit individual needs and preferences. They are also available as four-inch long swabsticks for users that find them more convenient.
After providing a topical cleansing, the wipes might be enriched with a lot of bacteria, thereby raising the risk of contamination. Hence it is recommended to dispose of the wipes safely after use. The wipes are sterilized and contain no natural rubber agents which makes them suitable for patients with latex allergies.
