The dolphin cissor, with straight or curved blades, is a classic instrument widely used by nursing staff either to cut materials such as compresses and dressings, or to apply various non-invasive treatments to the patient. It consists of a blade with a pointed tip and another with a rounded tip. The rounded part, when cutting, can be in direct contact with the patient's skin without any risk of injuring him. It is therefore very convenient for daily use during routine care.
Its use is relatively very simple, but it is necessary to take some precautions such as: always use the rounded blade against the patient's skin to avoid injuring him, disinfect him after each use to keep it clean and thus avoid the risk of cross-contamination in particular in case of multiple and not sterilized use.
Dolphin scissors are usually made of stainless steel. Autoclavable for eighteen minutes at one hundred thirty four degrees Celsius, this type of device can be cleaned by machine or by hand using a appropriate cleaning product that does not damage the stainless steel.
