Carriers, Surgical, Cotton/Sponge/Swab

Definition : Carriers designed to carry a sponge or a small pad (e.g., a swab) of cotton or other absorbent material at the working tip to clean and/or absorb body fluids (e.g., blood, mucus) during surgical procedures. These carriers are typically long, slender manual, handheld instruments that include grasping claws at the working end, a long shaft, and a handle at the proximal end to manipulate the grasping end. Sponge/swab surgical carriers are used mainly in surgical sites that are difficult to reach directly (e.g., the nasal cavities, the throat, the ear canal).
