Difference between medical cotton swabs and ordinary cotton swabs
We often use medical cotton swabs when we go to the hospital for infusion, injection or treatment. Besides the special cotton swabs used in the hospital, we can also buy ordinary cotton swabs in the supermarket. What is the difference between these two kinds of cotton swabs? The following is a brief introduction to you:
1、 Different materials
Medical cotton swabs are made according to the requirements of pharmaceutical industry standards. It is generally made of medical absorbent cotton and natural birch. Ordinary cotton swabs sold in supermarkets generally use cotton or sponge as raw materials.
2、 Requirements and uses: no
Compared with ordinary cotton swabs, medical cotton swabs have stricter requirements. They must go through the disinfection process, and have no irritation or harm in direct contact with the human body. They have good water absorption. So it is often used as an auxiliary for wound treatment. While ordinary cotton swabs are more used for external use, so the requirements are low and the cost is low.
3、 Different storage conditions
In addition to the above two differences, their storage conditions are also different. Medical cotton swabs are generally sealed separately and need to be stored in a dry, well ventilated room without corrosive substances; And ordinary cotton swabs should also avoid contact with dust as much as possible and be sealed for storage.
