Welcome to another Trending Friday! This week we're taking a look at some of our best-selling and most effective items exclusively for medical professionals. We've got vital supplies and specialized medications to help your practice treat many different chronic and severe medical conditions.
We've written before about skin conditions like eczema, which affects nearly 32 million Americans, and psoriasis, the most prevalent autoimmune disease in the United States. For the treatment of serious skin conditions, there's Desonide Skin Lotion 0.05% by Global, a mild corticosteroid applied topically. Desonide reduces the actions of chemicals in the body that cause inflammation, redness, and swelling. Desonide alleviates discomfort from the itching and inflammation that accompanies these conditions.
If your practice is in need of a reliable, reasonably-priced source for your needles, look no further than Mountainside Medical! We have Exel Disposable Hypodermic Needles in 100-count boxes for the low price of $5.99 a box. Non-toxic, latex-free, and non-pyrogenic, these needles are sterilized, individually packaged, and ready for use. They're available in many different lengths and gauges, and both the needles as well as their boxes are conveniently color-coded so you can easily find the one that you need.
Also available in 100-count boxes are VanishPoint Retractable Insulin Syringes by Retractable Technologies! VanishPoint Syringes automatically retract the needle from the patient and into the barrel of the syringe when the plunger handle is fully depressed. This easy-to-use, single-handed activation process virtually eliminates the risk of exposure to the contaminated needle, reducing the risk of needlestick injury. These sterile syringes also require less disposal space than others.
The prevalence of knee osteoarthritis has doubled since the mid-20th century, for reasons that may include longer lifespans, higher obesity rates, and higher rates of physical inactivity. Arthritis-attributable medical costs have reached $140 billion yearly, and your practice many cases of knee osteoarthritis. For cases where over-the-counter drugs and physical therapy cannot fully manage pain, Hyalgan injections can help. They contain hyaluronate, a naturally-occurring substance found in our connective tissue, and which acts as a lubricant and helps cushion the knee joint.
Chronic kidney disease affects around 14 percent of the population and about half of this number includes people with diabetes, which over 30 million Americans suffer from. Both of these can factor into metabolic acidosis, in which the kidneys are not removing enough acid from the body. In cases of acidosis, especially severe ones, intravenous sodium bicarbonate is indicated in order to neutralize excess in the blood. Hospira 8.4% Sodium Bicarbonate for Injection is a sterile, non-pyrogenic solution in a single-dose, 50 mL container.
Be sure to consult your doctor or other qualified health care professional before taking any medication, supplement, or beginning any health regimen.
