Most Common Medical Supply Orders

You have probably noticed on your last emergency visit that the nurses unwrap brand new supplies just for you. They unwrap a sterile needle, they use a new morphine drip bag, and they put on brand new gloves. This may cause you to consider how many supplies a hospital goes through in one day, or how many supplies get used in hospitals across the country. Read on for more information about common things ordered from companies like Red Cell Medical Supply.

Intravenous Kits

It is almost automatic that you get an intravenous or IV drip when you enter the hospital. You’re also usually using one throughout the duration of a hospital stay. This type of kit has several components. First you’ll need a prep, scrub, and alcohol pad. This is to clean the site where the needle will be inserted. A PVP ampule will also be needed to protect against infection. You will also need gloves and a device to secure the needle in place. This also often includes tape to prevent movement. You may find that it is worth the money to purchase a whole kit, or you may want to buy the parts separately to assemble the kits yourself.

Dressing Change Kits

You may also need supplies for changing the dressing around a central line IV. It is important to have all the right equipment to minimize the risk of infection. Kits usually include a CSR wrap, a mask, gloves, alcohol and PVP swab sticks, and ointment. They also include sponge, gauze, non-adherent pads, tape, dressing, labels, and a tray that holds all of this. Some say that using a pre-made kit like this reduces the chances of infections being acquired.

Other Kits

Since there are so many different procedures, the different types of kits you can order from Red Cell Medical Supply are vast. You may consider a standard procedure kit, which may include gloves, cotton balls or swabs, gauze, and other tools. These kits could be used with procedures like incision and draining, or nose bleeds. You may choose to order the supplies you need separately on an as-needed basis, order in kits, or order in bulk.

She will ask the client to pick five chess pieces and place them on the board. ach piece has its own meaning – the pawn is Venus which represents everything feminine, altruistic and open, while the horse is the Earth and represents the deceiving and working man.

Portraits of the Origins of Famous Superheroes And Villains

This series of portraits of the origin of famous superheroes and villains were created by the illustration team Ninjabot from Las Vegas.

"Each print has it's own personality, and at its very core, each print represents the story of one character. Although all the prints may not look the same, they still fit together as a series. They were all illustrated the way we thought fit the character, and story best. The most exciting part about this series is that as we created each one, we had no idea what it was going to look like. We tried to follow the story of each character as much as possible. With each illustration, we only tell you as much as you need to know to figure out who they are, and what their story is", says the Ninjabot.

"We think that the concept of these prints is truly unique from all the other prints out there because this collection of prints presents our favorite characters in a very personal and stylistic way. We show the struggles, and in some cases the sacrifices, some of these characters went through to become our beloved characters". - Ninjabot

"Better Than Out" Exhibit In New York

Banksy is a British street artist and well-known internationally His recent work is the "Better Than Out" exhibit that happens in the streets of New York. A delivery truck was used that carried 60 stuff animals like lambs, pigs, chicken, and cow and their heads in the wooden slats. The animals can also be heard squealing and banging their heads. 

"This is a piece of sculpture art, and I know what you're thinking, 'Isn't it a bit subtle?' Here, the artist Banksy is making some sort of comment on the causal cruelty of the food industry. Or perhaps something vague and pretentious about the loss of childhood innocence. The truck contains over 60 cuddly soft toys on the road to a swift death. However, in order to bring them to life, four professional puppeteers are required, strapped into bucket seats, dressed entirely in black lycra, pulling on an array of levers with each limb and given only one toilet break a day - proving that the only sentient beings held in lower esteem than livestock are mime artists", says the Banksy's audio guide.
