EyeGuardian – New Alternative to Micropore Tape
EyeGuardian is the new standard for patient eye protection. Discover why you should not use tape – protect your patient’s eyes effectively and reduce patient trauma with hypoallergenic eye pads.
Many operating theatres in the UK do not comply with the ‘Association of Perioperative Practice’ recommendations on patient eye protection during anaesthesia. It is commonplace to tape patients eyes with general purpose tape or costly gel wound dressing. The AfPP recommends ‘eye-pads fit for the purpose should be used for patient eye protection during anaesthesia.’
EyeGuardian is designed specifically for eye protection against corneal abrasion and other common hazards encountered during anaesthesia. EyeGuardian comprises of a specially formulated, mild adhesive that helps to provide a consistent, even pressure on the eye. This not only reduces bruising, eliminates eyelash removal and minimises disease transmission, but also helps the cornea stay moist throughout procedures, preventing corneal abrasions. The coloured tabs allow access to the eyes at any time for checking and maintaining optimum eye condition. Ensure your patients are protected effectively.
EyeGuardian is the result of over 10 years feedback on EyeGard – the world’s leading anaesthetic patient eye protection product. This has identified areas where the EyeGard design could be improved.
EyeGuardian offers the following advantages:
- Improved anatomical fit, not covering eyebrows
- Reduced usage of materials and packaging, friendly to environment and greater cost effectiveness
- Reduced inventory, the new design range comprises two adhesive types
- Suitable for both adults and children
- AfPP endorsed literature
