Learn more below about the Top 5 essentials for your practice. 

 Surface Cleaners

To maintain surfaces between patients, stock up on a selection of one-step surface cleaners and disinfectants. MeyerDC carries a variety of surface cleaners formulated to cut through dirt and grime or to disinfect hard, non-porous surfaces. While using a surface cleaner, consider using a disposable towel to help prevent cross contamination.

Face Masks

We carry 3-Ply Earloop Masks, KN95 Masks, and Layered Cloth Face Masks for personal protection to reduce exposure to harmful particles. 3-Ply Earloop Masks are designed for single use, KN95 Masks create a seal around the face with an adjustable nosepiece, and the Layered Cloth Face Masks are machine washable. 

How to Put On & Remove a Face Mask

Step 1: Wash the hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. 

Step 2: Take the mask and place it over the mouth and nose, ensuring there are no gaps. Take the ear loops and secure them behind the ears.

Step 3: To remove, avoid touching the front of the mask that is exposed. Remove the mask from behind and discard. Again, wash the hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer. 

Hand Sanitizer

Hand Sanitizer is recommended for use when soap and water are not available. The BodyMed® Hand Sanitizer available at MeyerDC is unscented and helps to reduce microbial presence with 70% Ethyl Alcohol. Customize the scent by adding essential oil to the container; approx. maximum ratio .25 oz. essential oil to 1 gallon sanitizer.

Pulse Oximeter

A fingertip pulse oximeter is engineered to provide a non-invasive spot-check measurement to monitor oxygen levels through the finger. The BodyMed® Fingertip Pulse Oximeter available at MeyerDC displays SpO2/pulse rate data using an advanced DSP algorithm that can diminish the impact that motion can have on readings. A portable pulse oximeter is easy to use at the office, gym, in the car or airplane, or at home. 

Gloves

Vinyl, powder-free exam gloves are ideal for providing care in procedures involving minimal risk of biological contamination. When placing an order for disposable exam gloves, be sure to order a variety of sizes since they should be form-fitted. At MeyerDC, we carry both vinyl and nitrile exam gloves. 

What is the difference?

Nitrile gloves are made with a synthetic rubber compound, have a higher puncture resistance than other glove material, and have a better chemical resistance. 

Vinyl gloves are more economical, durable gloves that have anti-static properties, are best used with non-hazardous materials, and are not made with natural rubber latex.
