There are many kinds of nurses with many specialties, and September's a time for celebrating vascular nurses. These nurses' expertise in vascular health is vital to patients with many different conditions, from diabetes to peripheral artery disease. A broad skill set is required to be a vascular nurse, and they can work anywhere from home settings to surgery. This complex position requires many different types of medical supplies, and we've compiled this list of some of the most useful!
One of the number one products for any nurse is a quality sphygmomanometer for monitoring blood pressure, and this is doubly true for vascular nurses.

Multiple designs are available, and its convenient, extra-large carry case zips closed and securely holds the matching monitor. It has a standard inflation bulb and release valve with a cuff range of 10" - 16". Don't go on a home health visit without this indispensable tool!
One of the most common conditions a vascular nurse will see is diabetes, which requires regular, careful management. This Freestyle Lite Blood Glucose Monitoring System makes it easy to monitor your patient's blood glucose during home health visits. This device is small, compact, and discrete, and only requires a minimal amount of blood to sample. No coding is required, therefore you eliminate one step.

Wound care is a regular component of treating patients with vascular conditions. Patients with circulation difficulties often find themselves with wounds that seem resistant to healing and susceptible to dangerous infections. B. Braun Prontosan Wound Irrigation Solution & Gel is designed to remove dirt and debris from chronic wounds, skin ulcers, and abrasions, even in the most difficult areas. Both the Prontosan Wound Irrigation Solution and Gel are made with PHMB (polyhexanide), which inhibits the growth of microorganisms. Clear and odorless, these products have a shelf life of 28 days with no refrigeration needed, making them the optimal choice for preparing home patients for wound care.
Sometimes wound management requires debridement, the removal of dead tissue. Wound debridement and cleaning are effective measures to reduce the amount of nonviable tissue and microorganism in a wound, promoting wound healing and preventing the spread of dead tissue and infection. This Debridement Kit is a sterile, surgical kit for minor debridement that contains high-quality instruments. Its sterile supplies reduce the risk of cross-contamination, and include Iris scissors, Adson forceps (1 x 2 teeth), a No. 10 scalpel, 2 gauze pads (3" x 3"), a cotton tipped applicator, and an alcohol prep pad.
