What Is Surgical Tape

Definition of medical tape

Medical tape is a common tape in hospitals, and is often used to fix needles, fix wounds, and fix drugs.

It has a high status in the field of medical glue, and is widely used in some general surgery, laparoscopy, neurology, cardiothoracic, obstetrics, urology, orthopedics, etc. with good results.

At the same time, tape can also be used to treat wounds in life, effectively controlling the expansion of wounds. Because the tape does not come off easily, it is strong and non-allergenic. It is considered a very common medical tool.
