How many of them comply? Precious few. CareFusion's StartClean program could change that. StartClean combines a bottle of 4% chlorhexidine gluconate cleanser and 3 single-use sponges with an individualized service that sends your patients a text, e-mail or voicemail reminding them to use their antiseptic cleanser before surgery. Remember, cleansers work only if your patients use them. carefusion.com/startclean Hone Complex Cataract Techniques The Kitaro DryLab and WetLab Kits from FCI Ophthalmics offer realistic surgical simulation through specially designed synthetic materials that give the look and feel of the natural tissue of the human eye. The DryLab lets surgeons practice skills such as self-sealing wound construction and suturing with a special resin sheet that offers a feel similar to that of cutting the human sclerocornea. Skills surgeons can practice with the WetLab, which is designed to simulate phacoemulsification using a phaco machine under a microscope in an OR, include intraoperative complication management in the event of a posterior capsule rupture and dropped nucleus. Each kit comes assembled in a carrying case, and any additional or replacement items may be ordered as needed. 10% discount on the first kit • fci-ophthalmics.com 1 5 2 # # # O U T PAT I E N T S U R G E R Y M A G A Z I N E O N L I N E | D E C E M B E R 2012 #
