Clippers, Hair, Electric, Preoperative
Definition : Electric hair clippers designed to remove hair from the head or body before surgical or other clinical procedures. These devices typically consist of a handheld, electrically (battery and/or line) powered mechanism with a narrow blade that performs a clipping action to cut the hair above but close to the skin surface. Preoperative electric hair clippers are intended to remove hair, with minimum skin damage, before surgical or other related clinical procedures (e.g., catheterization, labor). Preoperative electric hair clippers are usually manipulated by a healthcare worker to remove a patient's hair.
