Product Information

AdvaCare is a CE, ISO and USFDA manufacturer and global supplier of Gauze Balls. The StayGuard™ brand of Gauze Balls are internationally distributed and recognized for reliable quality and exceptional value. With distribution across developed and developing markets alike, our products are uniquely positioned as the brand of choice for medical professionals.

A gauze ball is a piece of cotton that has been manipulated into an elliptical shape. The predominant application of gauze balls is to absorb blood and other body fluid secretions which may result from surgical procedures. In conjunction with this application, gauze balls can also be used to clean medical instruments, wound disinfection and cleaning the skin. 

Gauze balls can be applied directly to the wound, as they are non-adhesive and suitable for direct contact.

Balls are manufactured from 100% cotton yarn, and come in a variety of sizes and thread yarns and meshes. The material that the balls are made from ensures a high level of absorbency and softness.

Gauze balls are widely used for both professional and consumer needs, in hospitals, clinics, senior living facilities, schools, and households.

Balls are available as either sterile or non-sterile.

Like most gauze products, gauze balls are available as either X-ray detectable or undetectable. If an x-ray detectable gauze ball is left in a body cavity, it can easily be identified, located and extracted. In an invasive, surgical setting, the x-ray detectable variant should be used. Devices such as gauze balls can cause a host of complications if not removed from the body.

Gauze balls are available with an elastic ring or without.

Gauze mesh is associated with the density of the cotton that the gauze ball is made from. A higher mesh count signifies higher density of the gauze. Gauze yarn relates to the fineness (or coarseness) of the ball. An elevated yarn count is indicative of courser threads.

Gauze balls are available in 5 series. They will be explored in greater detail below.

Benefits:

  • Gauze balls are portable and convenient for use when travelling, and can easily be stored in a first aid kit;
  • Gauze balls are easy to use and need little instruction;
  • Numerous sizes and shapes of gauze balls to choose from. Some wounds are large and need a gauze ball that is sufficiently large so it can effectively absorb the wounds discharge. Conversely, a minor wound does not require an excessively large ball, and thus a smaller ball would be suitable. AdvaCare offers gauze balls in a variety of different sizes to treat wounds of all magnitudes;
  • Gauze balls rapidly absorb fluids expelled by a wound, assisting in the healing process;
  • X-ray detectable gauze balls provide an extra level of safety during a surgical procedure, as they can be identified and located if one is left in a body cavity;
  • Because of its non-adhesive properties, gauze balls can be directly applied to the wound;
  • Gauze balls are extremely affordable, making it accessible to a wide range of people.

Usage:

Gauze balls are ideal for absorbing the discharge expelled from cuts, abrasions, blisters, or other injures that may seep blood or other fluids. They can also be used to disinfect and clean a wound. Gauze balls assist in accelerating the healing time of injuries.

To apply the ball, ensure the wound is cleaned thoroughly to remove any debris or foreign bodies. Ensure the shape and size of the gauze ball is applicable to the size of the wound that is being treated. The gauze ball can be directly placed onto the wound, as it is not adhesive. The ball is simply held in place over the wound, allowing it to soak up all the discharge secreted by the wound. Once the ball is saturated, or the wound has stopped discharging fluid(s), the ball can be removed and disposed of. Take care not to touch the wound, as this may aggravate it. Changing the ball frequently is recommended. If the ball gets saturated or soiled, it should be replaced immediately with a fresh ball.

It is imperative that gauze balls are not used if the packaging or seal is compromised. Evidence of this may suggest tampering or loss of sterility. If one should come across balls inside compromised packaging, the correct course of action is to dispose of it quickly and safely.

Precautions:

  • It is important that gauze balls are not reused. Once used, the device is not fit to be salvaged for further used, as sterilization cannot be retained. Re-using balls can result in infections being transmitted;
  • Must prepare the balls for use in a clean, sterile environment, absent of bodily fluids or other sources of contamination;
  • Gauze balls are more suitable to treat relatively minor cuts and lesions. If a wound is more severe, or is bleeding, a stronger, more robust medical device should be used, for example an adhesive bandage, also offered by AdvaCare;
  • Gauze balls should be stored in a clean, dry location that is well ventilated, and not overly humid or hot. Failure to do so may interfere with the balls absorption properties;
  • Promptly and safely dispose of any balls that have touched a potentially contaminated surface;
  • If gauze balls are being used in a surgical operation, sterile, x-ray detectable balls should be used;
  • If balls have blood or any other bodily substance on it, it must be handled as biohazard waste.

Materials:

The ranges of gauze balls offered by AdvaCare are composed of high quality, 100% pure cotton yarn.
