- Tweezer-style forceps for first aid kits
- Remove splinters and small foreign objects
- Single packaged forceps
These tough little handheld forceps are ideal for removing splinters and other objects from the body. Small splinters can lead to bigger injuries and can also create a serious risk of infection, so they should be removed as quickly as possible. They are made from durable stainless steel, which can be sterilised before and after every use to prolong the life of the forceps. Keep these forceps alongside your first aid supplies in case of an emergency need. They can also be useful for holding and applying delicate dressings like sterile strips, and for carefully cleaning wounds where objects remain within the skin. Gloves should always be worn when using forceps to remove an object from the skin, and the wound should be correctly dressed after removal.
