Lister Bandage Scissors are a versatile instrument with multiple uses. They are commonly used for sizing dressings and removing circumferential bandages. They may also be used to cut tougher material such as plaster, fabric and occasionally umbilical cord. The jaws of the Lister Bandage Scissors are angled with the lower blade being slightly longer. The tip of the lower blade features a flattened blunt nodule that is intended to slide between bandages and skin without cutting the skin. This feature allows Lister Bandage Scissors to occasionally be used during cesarean section to open the uterus without causing inadvertent injury to the baby. Ring handles can be equal in size or with one ring larger. This product is angled with smooth, blunt/blunt tips and a length of 4-1/2 inches.
