Medical Swabs and Applicators
Medical swabs and applicators are used for medical care such as cleaning wounds, applying ointments, and taking specimens for analysis. They allow more precise contact than using your fingers, reduce skin-to-skin contact to help prevent infections, and minimize caregiver exposure to medications and body fluids. Cotton-tip swabs and polyester-tip swabs have an absorbent tip at one or both ends for soaking up liquids. In addition to being medical applicators, swabs are frequently used for personal care, household cleaning, and crafts. Swabsticks have a large foam tip for more absorbency and surface area than swabs and are often used to refresh dry mouths in patients with restricted fluid intake. Tongue depressors are sometimes used as applicators for spreading medications over large areas.Close
