What's Trending: Top Pharmaceutical Products
Posted on January 11 2019
We've focused a lot on personal health lately, with blog posts on everything from weight loss to stress management, but we wanted to take some time out to lend some support to our friends in the medical community. The middle of January is a particularly stressful and overworked time for doctors, nurses, and all other medical professionals -- flu season is at its peak, seasonal affective disorder is prevalent, and many people schedule their regular checkups to take advantage of leftover vacation days. So we've put together a list of trending items, many of them on sale, that can help your practice thrive during these difficult days.
2018 was a tough year for those in need of medical supplies, as many necessary items were widely out of stock. Medical professionals spent much of the year trying to find bacteriostatic water, in short supply everywhere. Now in the new year, we're excited to say that we have it in stock! Mountainside Medical has 30 mL vials of bacteriostatic water with an expiration date of October 2020. It's in limited supply, so order now while it's still available! And for those of you looking for bacteriostatic water for fitness purposes, consider our starter pack, featuring everything you need for injection.
Flu season peaks between December and February, which means that if you're a medical professional reading this, you're probably seeing your highest number of influenza cases all year. This might help: in October 2018, the FDA approved a brand new flu medication, Xofluza. This antiviral medication is a single-dose tablet that attacks the flu virus rather than just treating symptoms. Clinical testing has shown an average recovery from flu symptoms in just over 2 days! When your patients need quick relief, Xofluza is here.
Special Price! You can get 2-packs of 250 mL Sodium Chloride IV Bags for only $8.95! Sodium Chloride IV bags can be used for intravascular injections, as a dilutant or solvent for parenteral drugs, or to contribute to hydration during fluid therapy. These sterile, non-pyrogenic bags are free of both latex and PVC. They're made with a rigid saddle and wide medication port that make it quicker and easier to add medications with a reduced risk of contamination and needle sticks.
To make things even better, we have full cases of 24 bags available for only $89.95!

Lidocaine Hydrochloride for injection, used as an anesthetic for surgeries and other medical procedures, is available in 50 mL bottles for the special price of $12.95! These solutions are nonpyrogenic and contain no antimicrobial agents. They're also in limited supply, so order yours now while they're still available!

Also on sale is one of the most trusted topical anesthetics on the market, Gebauer's Ethyl Chloride Mist Spray. This skin refrigerant is widely used in sports medicine to relieve pain from minor sports injuries, as well as for managing pain from injections, starting IVs, and minor surgical procedures. With its instant onset action, Ethyl Chloride Mist Spray is the preferred topical anesthetic of healthcare practitioners in fields as diverse as orthopedics, podiatry, and sports medicine.
Nothing is more important in a medical facility than keeping it sanitized. Microorganisms are a pervasive threat that can cause infections throughout a hospital. Sani-Cloth Plus is an alcohol-based, non-woven, surface disinfectant wipe that's effective against 15 different microorganisms, including serious threats like H1N1 Virus, MRSA, and Respiratory Syncytial Virus. Each wipe is saturated with 2,500 ppm of active quaternary ammonium chlorides, able to kill many viruses in 2-5 minutes. These hospital-grade disinfectant wipes are made for medical equipment and hard surfaces but safe enough to use on children's toys.
