Suture Trays

  • The suture tray
  • The basic emergency department suture tray has the equipment necessary to manage a simple laceration.Surgical Drapes
  • The surgical drapes should be used to completely surround the wound and a portion of the surrounding sterile field.
  • 4" x 4" Gauze
  • The gauze is used to clean the wound area.
  • Suture Materials - 4.0 and 6.0
  • For facial wounds, a smaller gauge suture such as 6.0 is used. For wounds under greater stress and of less cosmetic importance such as a thigh laceration, a 4.0 suture would be appropriate.
  • Antiseptic Solution and Saline
  • The antiseptic solution is for cleansing the skin around the wound and saline is used to cleanse and irrigate the wound itself.
  • Syringe with splash cover
  • Wound irrigation has been shown to be the most effective means of removing debris and contaminants. The splash cover helps to avoid exposure to the patient's blood and body fluids.
  • Scalpel
  • The operator may request a scalpel to allow a wound to be extended or wound edges to be debrided.
  • Straight Hemostat
  • The straight hemostat can be used for blunt dissection. It should not be used to clamp blood vessels or tissues since it will injure these structures.
  • Curved Hemostat
  • The curved hemostat can be used for blunt dissection. It should not be used to clamp blood vessels or tissues since it will injure these structures.
  • Toothed Forceps
  • The toothed forceps are used to grasp the skin edges while suturing. They tend to be less traumatic than non-toothed forceps but can damage tissues if applied forcefully.
  • Non-toothed Forceps
  • This is considered to be a more traumatic instrument than its toothed counterpart for grasping tissue.
  • Needle Driver
  • The needle driver is reinforced instrument designed to grasp the suture needle.
  • Scissors
  • The scissors are intended only to cut sutures. They have no rule in the dissection or removal of tissue.
