Medical Supplies and Equipment
What are medical supplies?
Medical supplies, or medical devices, are defined as products used for medical purposes on patients, whether they be used for diagnosis, therapy, or surgery. Unlike pharmaceutical drugs which elicit a biochemical effect, the effect of medical supplies is primarily physical. While medical supplies encompass everything from stethoscopes to tongue depressors and gauze pads, they are all classified as medical technology.
