STERILE UNDERBODY BLANKET
Arizant Healthcare Inc, Eden Prairie, Minn, introduces its Model 637 Sterile Full Access Underbody blanket, which provides unrestricted patient access and forced-air warming benefits. Patients undergoing aesthetic surgeries in sterile environments can benefit from normothermia and forced-air warming. The blanket may be positioned on the procedure table before the patient arrives at the operating room. Patented fluid outlets minimize pooling of fluids on the surface of the blanket. Pass-through slits allow flexible patient positioning and the use of a drawsheet. Soft, radiolucent materials accommodate imaging requirements. The perforated area at the head of the blanket can be removed to accommodate a full prone position. Adhesive strips and tuck flaps secure the blanket to the operating table. A clear plastic drape (included) helps retain warm air around the patient’s head.

Encino, Calif, introduces Dermatological Complete Sunscreen with SPF 50, which protects against sunburns caused by UVB radiation and against UVA rays—the leading cause of photoaging and skin cancer. The sunscreen’s filtering protection comes from a combination of organic ingredients that absorb UV radiation before it can penetrate into the skin. Titanium dioxide (formerly called sunblock) scatters and reflects UV radiation. The filters have been encapsulated in micro pearls to prevent the occlusive effects on the skin pores produced by liposoluble organic filters, particularly at high concentrations. The product is water-resistant, nongreasy, perfume-free, and suitable for use on the lips and bald scalps. It also may be used after chemical peel treatments, microdermabrasion, and IPL/laser treatments.
