Medical and surgical forceps are among the most frequently used pieces of medical equipment. They are used for clamping, tweezing, and applying pressure during surgical and other medical procedures, and can also function as extractors and pincers. Additionally, the forceps are helpful in examination rooms, emergency rooms, and administering first aid. They can be used to manipulate medical equipment during procedures and apply and remove gauze and wipes.
There are two main surgical forceps, namely the thumb and hemostatic forceps.
- The thumb forceps are used by compression between the thumb and the forefinger. They are ideal for holding, grasping, or manipulating body tissues. They also come in various tips; they can be angled, curved or straight.
- Hemostatic forceps are hinged and look more like scissors. Some of them come with a lock for clamping.
