Stainless steel instruments are most commonly used. Stainless steel is an alloy of iron ,chromium & carbon. It also contain nickel or manganese to add tensile strength & also to prevent corrosion .Cont…..d: Cont…..d Carbon component of the stainless steel gives the hardness. Chromium makes the stainless steel resistant to corrosion. Instruments must be used for the proposes they are intended for. Also necessary care should be taken before & after the use of the instruments as per the direction of their manufacturer. Instruments are classified according to their functions of use:a) Cutting & dissecting instruments : a) Cutting & dissecting instruments These instruments are used for incising or dissecting tissues. They have sharp edges. They are also called sharp instruments because of their sharp edges. Sharp instruments are kept separated from the other instruments. These instruments needs caution handling to prevent accidental cuts or injuries. During use. These instruments never boiled or autoclave for sterilization to protect their sharpness because heat ,especially moist heat destroy their sharpness & make them blunt.Cont……….d: Cont……….d These instruments are sterilized by chemical method-------keeping them submerged in chemical solutions for a prescribed period. Bard parker (BP) handle & blade. Knife Scalpel ScissorsBard parker handle or scalpel blade : Bard parker handle or scalpel blade It is a handle to hold blades at the distal end . Its proximal end is flat & round. It has a shaft. Part of the shaft is serrated to have a better grip. Its distal end is narrow which has got a slunt dent in which the blade is fixed. B.P handles vary in size.Bard parker Blades : Bard parker Blades BP blades also vary in size & shapes. The blades usually have curved cutting edges . Blades are held in dinner knife position or writing position used for incision on skin ,fascia ,muscles ,peritoneum etc. Following are the sizes & shapes of the blades.Cont…….d: Cont…….d No: 10 blade fits on B.P handle no. 3 ,7 & 9.it is most commonly used. No: 11 blade has a straight cutting edge ,which ends to a sharp point ,it also fits on B.P handle no. ,& & 9. No:12 blade has a hook like shape with the cutting edges on the inner curvature. it also fits on BP handle no: 3 ,7 & 9. No:15 blade has a smaller & shorter curved cutting edge on the inner curvature. No:20 blade has a shape like no.10 blade ,bit it is bigger in size ,it fits on BP handle no: 4.Surgical knife : Surgical knife It is like a kitchen knife with usually a brass handle. Its edge runs along one side till the tip. The tip is pointed or blunt. Knives are used for cutting or dissecting skin or tissues. There is special knife which is called Humby's or Blair’s knife. These knife are specially designed for obtaining a skin graft.Skin grafting knife: Skin grafting knife Made of stainless steel. It consists of a handle and stem, on which is mounted and adjustable roller. It is used for taking split skin grafts used for coverage of raw surface composed of healthy vascularized or clean granulations to obtains healing and limit deformity and disability .Scissors : Scissors Scissors are used for cutting the tissues in various structures. Scissors are used for cutting sutures ,ligatures ,gauze ,dressing pads ,bandages etc. Pointed tip scissor are also used for removing sutures.Cont…….d: Cont…….d Scissors may be straight ,curved or angled with blunt or pointed tips. The handles may be short or long . Different types of scissors are mentioned below: Fine scissors are used to cut delicate tissues. Heavy scissors are used to cut tough tissues. Short shaft scissors are used for cutting superficial structures or tissues.Cont……….d: Cont……….d Long shaft scissors are used to reach & cut inner or under structures. Sutures scissors have blunt tips to prevent cut or injury on the body structures near suture. These are used to cut suture or ligament after stitching or ligating. Dressing or bandage scissor are used to cut gauze pieces ,dressing ,drains or plastic packets.Straight pointed tip scissor Angled tip scissor : Straight pointed tip scissor Angled tip scissor Straight or curved pointed tip scissors are used for removing the sutures from the surgical wound after its healing. angled tip scissors, with a blunt tip on the bottom blade, which helps in cutting bandages.
