Summit Medical Limited Provide Solutions For Clinicians

Day surgery is recognised as a major part of the future NHS, with the Department of Health proposing that 75% of elective surgery should be performed as a day case procedure.

With this in mind, Summit Medical Ltd. will be demonstrating the S-MART Sterile Exsanguinating Tourniquet on Stand A231 at the AfPP Congress in Harrogate in October. This innovative single-use tourniquet also expels and occludes the blood in the limb, and features an integrated stockinette, providing a sterile field. Pull handles enable quick and simple placement of the device on the limb, greatly reducing set up time and thus allowing for additional patients to be added to the day list.
