Help Heal With Rubber Bands

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

I love to read all the comments from medical professionals on the interesting ways rubber bands make a difference at the hospital. MD000746Consider blood work. Rubber bands can be found throughout that procedure.

For instance, the constricting bands or tourniquets are made of latex rubber and the blood specimen tubes used to collect blood are frequently organized with the use of rubber bands.

Vacutainers, tubes that hold sterile, disposable double-ended needles, also have a rubber stopper. While giving blood is not always a pain-free experience, “rubber” band products help the process significantly.

Tell us how rubber bands have helped you. We’d like to thank Chrywstal, the winner of our latest blog post. She receives a prize pack and t-shirt.
