Want to know more about Tongue Depressors

Tongue depressors are a non-intrusive solution

When it comes to nursing supplies, there are few tools as flexible as the wooden depressor. Sterile tongue depressors make it easier for nurses to see inside a patient’s mouth and diagnose them. These products are less intrusive than some other examination methods, and they can also incorporate interesting designs. Colored tongue depressors help children feel at ease during an examination and can even keep them occupied while they wait for their turn. They come in several sizes, ensuring that nurses can choose the ones right for them and their patients.

Sterile tongue depressors help maintain a steady workflow

Wooden tongue depressors are disposable at a moment’s notice, making them ideal for a fast-paced environment with a lot of foot traffic. The smooth and durable nature makes them useful for applying lotions and mixing medications. As with other medical supplies, it’s important to find products that are reliable and long-lasting. For tongue depressors, bulk options can ensure that a supply closet stays stocked for a long time. To find the ideal depressors, consider the following characteristics:

  • Material type
  • Dimensions
  • Smoothness
  • Sterility
  • Box size

The look and feel of these products can differ based on whether they’re made with wood or plastic, so undertake research before selecting one type over the other. Large tongue depressors are a better fit for adults than children, so it’s important to keep the target audience in mind.

Wooden depressors offer creative opportunities

Although depressors are an important component of healthcare supplies, they have other uses. They’re ideal for hobbyists who need useful building blocks or foundations for creative endeavors. Children can use them as popsicle sticks for food experimentation as well as the basis for exciting new art projects. Quill carries a wide range of depressors for use in creative challenges and medical settings.
