Tattooing Health Risks, Warnings & The Benefits Of Disposables

The use of disposable items, such as plastic single-use razors, single-use paper products like exam table paper, disposable tattoo chair and table covers, as well as disposable apparel and exam gloves can significantly reduce the spread of blood-borne pathogens.

The use of disposable items, such as plastic single-use razors, single-use paper products like exam table paper, disposable tattoo chair and table covers, as well as disposable apparel and exam gloves can significantly reduce the spread of blood-borne pathogens.

Even the most talented tattoo artist cannot tattoo without the proper tools. The tools of the trade, despite some variation, are essentially the same among all modern tattoo artists.  What’s more, the core of an artist’s toolkit will be the tattoo machine, needles, inks, autoclave, disposable razors, gloves and anti-bacterial soap to name a few professional tattoo supplies.  There’s a lot of equipment that goes into being an able and responsible tattoo artist with the most important technical aspects being artistry and, more importantly, safety.  The business of tattooing used to carry certain stigmas, and while good artists and mainstream acceptance have brought much of that to an end, there are still many reasons that bad reputation was and still persists even today.

One of the contributors to this less-than-stellar view of tattooing has to do with the health risks it has posed in the past.  Frankly, there are still health risks for both the customer and the tattoo artist, however, safety procedures coupled with technological advances have helped to minimize the risks to where getting and giving a tattoo has become quite safe.  Every reputable tattoo artist will have done their due-diligence and be abreast of the latest tattooing safety regulations, precautions and equipment.  In today’s professional tattooing market, tattoo shops use vigorous cleaning and sterilization procedures, testing and analyzing routinely to make certain that their tattoo establishment and tattoo equipment are protecting staff and clients.

The principal health risk related to tattooing is the possibility of spreading blood-borne pathogens from one person to another, much like the healthcare industry’s rising issue of healthcare associate infections or HAI’s.  Diseases such as Hepatitis, Herpes, HIV and more can be spread when someone is exposed to the infected blood of another. The tattooing process requires needles to puncture the skin, which means that artisans often come into contact with blood.  Complex strategies, like the use of high-tech sterilization equipment, like autoclaves, are steps that are taken to protect everyone from other health and safety issues, but it is important not to overlook the simple things that help to complete and bolster the overall effectiveness of those precautions.  The use of disposable items, such as plastic single-use razors, single-use paper products like exam table paper, disposable tattoo chair and table covers, as well as disposable apparel and exam gloves can significantly reduce the spread of blood-borne pathogens.

UDI: What is it and what does it mean?

If you don’t get your kits from Danlee Medical Products, is that company FDA and UDI compliant? Check for yourself at https://accessgudid.nlm.nih.gov/.

If you don’t get your kits from Danlee Medical Products, is that company FDA and UDI compliant? Check for yourself at https://accessgudid.nlm.nih.gov/.

Although the acronym looks like it pertains to either a medical condition or a new gluten-free dieting aid, neither could be farther from the truth.  UDI, simply put is a unique device identification system specifically designed to improve the quality of information in medical device adverse event reporting, helping the FDA and other global entities to identify product problems promptly for far more efficient target recalls, and vastly improving patient safety.  This unique numeric or alphanumeric code includes a device identifier and a production identifier such as the lot or batch number, serial number, and/or the expiration date; specific to a device model and includes the current production information for that specific device.

Furthermore, the FDA database includes this standard set of basic identifying elements for each UDI, making most of it available to the public.  This will enable users of a medical device, like Holter hook-up kits, ambulatory stress test kits and cardiac event recording kits, to easily look up information regarding their specific device. The database does not contain any information about those who use a device or their personal privacy information, just the device-specific information pertinent to keeping the public at large safe.  Partnering with foreign regulators in Europe, Canada, Japan, and Australia, the FDA has developed regulations establishing this innovative and overdue international standard for identifying medical devices and their apparatuses.

An exceptional component of UDI is that it provides a consistent way to enter information about devices in electronic health records and clinical information systems.  This element allows for all regulating entities, foreign and domestic; to allow manufacturers, distributors, and healthcare facilities to more effectively manage medical device recalls, providing a foundation for a global, secure distribution chain, that addresses counterfeiting and diversion, but more importantly, to prepare for medical emergencies.  The significant reduction in medical errors by enabling healthcare professionals and others to more rapidly and precisely identify a device and obtain important information concerning the characteristics of the device will undoubtedly save millions of dollars and countless lives.

Danlee Medical Products, your trusted cardiology and medical supplies partner for over 20 years, has taken the lead by becoming UDI compliant years ahead of the industry launch date.  The rollout of the UDI system was initially slated for September of 2016 with Danlee Medical leading the way primed, ready and compliant in the summer of 2016 for all Holter hook-up kits, ambulatory stress test kits and cardiac event recording kits.  However, with the majority of the medical industry not quite prepared the FDA pushed the launch date back to September of 2018.  Many manufacturers and distributors breathed a collective sigh of relief in the adjourned launch of the UDI system, but Danlee Medical pressed on, business as usual, and operates today as one of the few UDI compliant entities operating in the US, as well as the first Holter hook-up kits, ambulatory stress test kits and cardiac event recording kits manufacturer to become UDI compliant.

As an industry leading manufacturer of single-use medical-professional-grade cardiology testing kits, Danlee Medical prides itself as a company that puts public health first, taking any and all opportunities to fight the good fight, evolving and improving the healthcare system.  Partnering with a trusted cardiology supplies and equipment provider that understands the importance of compliance, its direct correlation with a healthy patient and a healthy provider-patient relationship, like Danlee Medical, is what gives your practice the edge in today’s more than competitive healthcare market.  Helping guide you through the intricacies of the UDI system, while providing you with the tools you need to maintain your reputation as a premier cardiology services and healthcare provider.  We’re here for you, standing by your side every step of the way.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest: Be Prepared When Seconds Count

DEFIB_PADSOne of the leading causes of the death in the United States is sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), striking indiscriminately people of all ages and fitness levels.  In fact, many statistics indicate that SCA is a public health crisis with 13% of all workplace fatalities stemming from SCA and a whopping 365,000 people in North America alone falling victim every year to sudden cardiac arrest.  The definitive treatment for the life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias such as ventricular fibrillation, the most common electrical mechanism in cardiac arrest, and the pulse-less ventricular tachycardia, is defibrillation.  Defibrillation is the delivering of a therapeutic dose of electrical energy through a device called a defibrillator to depolarize a critical mass of the heart muscle, terminating the arrhythmia and allowing normal sinus rhythm to be reestablished by the sinoatrial node.

In the past most external defibrillation shocks were delivered via paddles placed upon the patient’s chest delivering a monophasic waveform; current traveling in one direction through the heart.  Currently in the US, the majority of defibrillation shocks are delivered through defibrillation electrodes or pads that are placed directly on the patient’s skin. These defibrillation pads are safer for first responders because they conform to the chest and are generally able to deliver the current more effectively.  Another change in modern defibrillation is the use of biphasic waveform which is electrical current distributed to the heart in two vectors. The efficacy of the shock is significantly augmented with a biphasic waveform as the peak current required to convert the arrhythmia is reduced and results in less myocardial damage from the shock itself.

The moments before first responders arrive are crucial with even the best EMS departments taking an average of nine minutes to respond. The chances of surviving drop by an alarming 10 percent for every minute that passes between the onsets of SCA and the use of a defibrillator.  According to a study performed by Johns Hopkins University for the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, the application of an automated external defibrillator (AED) in communities is associated with nearly a doubling of survival after the onset of sudden cardiac arrest. These results reinforce the importance of strategically expanding AED programs.  Danlee Medical, your trusted cardiology supplies partner for over 20 years, is here to guide and assist you through the process to standardize your defibrillation equipment and accessories before a major safety issue arises with an offering of some of the best defibrillator models on the market, as well as superior defibrillation pads and accessories.

Whether you are in critical care units, specialty units such as the operating room, post anesthesia care unit, stress lab, cardiac catheterization lab, and electrophysiology lab, be prepared with our competitively priced selections of defibrillation pads.  Constructed of the highest medical-professional-grade materials and specifically designed for faster, smoother transition from the scene to EMS to hospital treatment or intra-hospital transport when unstable patients are taken for diagnostic studies, or for inter-hospital transport by air and ground teams; Danlee’s selection is sure to cover your unique needs.

At Danlee Medical Products, we believe that we have a responsibility to help others and as a company we dedicate time and resources towards the goal of bettering the world we live in; whether it’s locally, domestically or globally.  We’re not the like the cookie-cutter cardiology and medical supplies companies that you’ve dealt with in the past…telling you how great the products are.  You may have been born at night, but not last night, so you know what products work for you.  We understand that the greatness about the products and services we provide comes from YOU.  At Danlee Medical, we’re in the business of helping you be you: the premiere medical/cardiology services provider with a reputation for excellence in your field and community.  For over 20 years we’ve had your back, helping you to define and maintain your superstar status.  Danlee Medical is proud to serve and help you be you.  We’re Danlee Medical, and nobody beats our heart.

Cardiology Testing Kits: Increasing Process Efficacy and Patient Satisfaction

Due to the Kits_ad_MArchwide variety of items that are categorized as medical devices, regulation of those medical devices is a complex and daunting task.  With examples ranging from the unassuming tongue depressor to
life-sustaining cardiology equipment like heart valves and cardiology testing kits; what is classified as a medical device adds an exceptional wrinkle into the process.  Congress has debated for over 40 years how best to ensure that consumers have access to new and improved medical devices, as well as preventing devices that are not safe from entering or remaining on the market.  Danlee Medical Products is and has been a stringently FDA regulated and compliant medical device manufacturer of cardiology testing kits for over 20 years.  With a proven track record for excellence and going above and beyond FDA regulations to ensure that the products you know, love and trust are safe – protecting your patient’s health, as well as your reputation as a premier cardiology provider is our priority.  How best can you remain a premier provider of cardiology services?  Top providers remain and maintain their premier status by improving process efficiency, which directly affects downstream costs, and more importantly, your patient’s quality of care.

Quality of patient care is directly correlated with process efficacy, essentially proving the old cliché that time is money, and that the customer is always right.  Streamlining your current cardiology testing process is paramount, and Danlee Medical, your trusted cardiology supply provider of custom cardiology hook-up kits, has the tools that you need to be successful in that endeavor.  With well over 400 variations of Holter hook-up kits, ambulatory stress test kits and cardiac event recording kits that are medical-professional-grade FDA regulated and compliant, we understand that preparedness gives you the edge.  Our Holter hook-up kits, ambulatory stress test kits and cardiac event recording kits put all of the components in one convenient bag, for ease of use and effortless inventory control.  Life and luck favors the prepared and having your cardiology testing electrodes, patient diaries, batteries, prep razors, tape strips, alcohol prep pads and prep scrubs conveniently at your fingertips ensures speed and accuracy of patient care.  Telling a patient that their test has to be rescheduled due to lack of cardiology supplies is nerve-racking and inconvenient for patients and speaks to a practice’s lack of professionalism.

As an industry leader in the manufacture of cardiology testing kits for more than 20 years we
place a high-level of emphasis on design expertise, the implementation of innovative technologies and processes, as well as comprehensive quality management that far exceeds FDA regulation; it’s our priority to partner with you to make your vision a reality.  Not only do we provide our medical-professional-grade FDA regulated and compliant cardiology testing kits to cardiologists, urgent care facilities, hospitals, private practices and clinicians across the nation and beyond, we also provide private label medical-professional-grade cardiology testing kits to OEMs, Holter scanning services and clinical trials.  This exemplifies the relationships we share with our exalted clients as well as our competition in the market.  Do you feel like your specific practice’s discipline wasn’t included above?  Danlee Medical recognizes that the antiquated, traditional choices often fall short and is precisely why we “Make it Happen” with fully customizable medical-professional-grade single-use FDA regulated and compliant custom cardiology hook-up kits to genuinely match the needs of your specific discipline.  We make certain that you get precisely what you need, nothing more and more importantly, at no additional cost to you!  Because our cardiology testing kits are made-to-order you only pay for the contents requested, unlike many of our competitor’s pre-packed cardiology testing kits that include items you do not need and are responsible to pay for.

Cardiology Analytics: Solutions for Eliminating Erroneous Findings

trodes-graphic_againClinical and laboratory testing is the basis on which approximately 70% of all medical decisions regarding a patient’s diagnosis, treatment, admission and discharge are derived according to an article published by the Mayo Clinic.  This vital role in diagnosis and early intervention coupled with timely and accurate results has become the focus of healthcare reform and are necessary for the quality of patient care and for managing downstream costs.  New cardiac diagnostic tests are constantly being developed to further the understanding of disease, injury, and congenital (present at birth) or acquired abnormalities of the heart.

The use of cardiology electrodes can produce life-saving diagnosis and treatment of cardiac diseases, however, erroneous findings or artifact can be prevalent due to misplacement or misconnection or lack of proper adhesion.  When cardiology electrodes are not constructed of the highest quality materials, performance and reliability become suspect causing arrival at inaccurate, costly and possibly deadly conclusions.  Decision-making and treatment based on simulated or misdiagnosed cardiac diseases does happen on occasion and is detrimental to patients and exceptionally costly for cardiologists, however, simulated or misdiagnosed diseases are, to a degree, absolutely preventable.

Ultimately, finding the right dynamic provider of competitively priced medical-professional-grade cardiology products, like Danlee Medical, can help cardiologists and cardiology researchers successfully work towards improving their clinical analytics and patient experience, while reducing the cost of care and driving profitability.  Cardiology electrodes should and need to be easy for cardiologists and cardiology researchers to use without extensive preparation and without compromising absolute reliability and signal quality.  Therefore, optimally designed medical-professional-grade cardiology electrodes are devices that can secure efficient workflows while eliminating deadly and costly inaccurate analytics.

The most common issues associated with erroneous findings while using cardiology electrodes can be attributed to one or more of the aforementioned categories.  However, barring the removal of the “human-factor,” or categories such as misplacement or misconnection, the most artifact-producing issue that can be easily addressed with superior quality medical-professional-grade cardiology products is simply the lack of adhesion.  We recognize that time and cost efficient medical-professional-grade cardiology electrodes that deliver unmatched readings, user convenience, and patient comfort while ensuring that critical workflow is not disrupted by false analytics due to poor adhesion is precisely what you and your patients deserve.

With trusted brands like Kendall NUTAB, Vermed SilveRest, AMBU Blue sensor, as well as our very own FanTABstics®, ensuring that your decisions regarding critical patient diagnosis and treatment are accurate; all constructed of the highest quality materials with the remarkable adhesion, performance and reliability, Danlee Medical delivers.  Whether you’re performing an ECG, stress test, echo-cardiogram, Holter monitoring, event or loop recording, Danlee Medical deals in all of the top-selling, versatile and reliable medical-professional-grade cardiology electrodes to cover your specific cardiology needs.

Danlee Medical Products recognizes that delivering cost-friendly, superior patient care is imperative to your success and is proud to offer competitively priced medical-professional-grade cardiology products to aid you in that endeavor.  Whether it’s cardiac research or diagnosis, emergency medical services, or research or diagnosis of neurological or muscular disorders, Danlee Medical can help reduce downstream costs by providing you the necessary and life-saving tools that ensure significantly superior performance and reliability, every time.

Protecting Your Patients: Preventing Cross Contamination While Maintaining Dignity and Modesty

Man in hospital gown sitting on examination table, rear view

Danlee Medical is here to support healthcare providers/facilities to nurture a healthy provider/patient relationship that promotes trust.

An individual’s sense of self-worth and self-respect can comprise a host of mitigating factors, but in healthcare, patient dignity is focused explicitly on aspects of respect and respect of privacy.  For many patients, their experience in healthcare settings can be frightening, overwhelming and undignified.  Procedures and examinations time and again may consist of components that erode the dignity of patients.  The successful, modern-day healthcare provider understands the importance of protecting a patient’s sense of modesty and dignity while providing essential, life-saving care.

Many patients, past and present, are troubled about how most medical gowns do not protect their modesty, with some gowns opening in the back or are simply not big enough to accommodate certain people. Over the years the traditional hospital gown has been the butt of many a joke, however, patient dignity and modesty is no laughing matter.  At Danlee Medical we’ve literally got you covered with our comprehensive variety of competitively priced medical-grade disposable apparel.  Danlee Medical is here to support healthcare providers and facilities to nurture a healthy provider/patient relationship that promotes trust.  One of our top-selling competitively priced medical-grade disposables are our exam shorts.  An excellent choice as an alternative to the traditional hospital gown, intuitively designed, constructed of soft, pliable, latex-free, high tensile strength material with fluid and particle barriers built in.  These medical-grade disposable exam shorts come in either “boxer-short” style or “moon-short” style (colonoscopy/endoscopy) to better suit your practice’s needs.

Additionally, for healthcare providers accommodating patient dignity and modesty they are also preventing cross contamination.  Danlee Medical provides multiple varieties of hospital-grade exam table paper, disposable pillow cases, disposable drapes and sheets, disposable blood pressure cuff liners, to name a few; all constructed of the highest quality materials for added strength, durability, softness and for further protection against the spread of healthcare associated infections.  According to a study published in 2006 by The Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America, reusable blood pressure cuffs have shown to be a major source of bacterial contamination and play a large role in the spread of healthcare associated infections in hospitals.  The highest contamination rates for reusable blood pressure cuffs with were found in ICUs (Intensive Care Units) and nurses’ carts.  Many commonly used disinfectants were shown to be ineffective in eliminating all microbial life, largely C. diff, which is known to be resistant to commonly used disinfectants.  By utilizing the Danlee Medical disposable blood pressure cuff liners you will effectively combat the spread of costly healthcare associated infections while continuing to promote patient confidence.
