June 2018 Product Picks: GloShield makes the list!

Protection from surgical burns and fires during scope procedures


GloShield by Jackson Medical is a single-use disposable safety device that fits on the distal (scope) connector of a fiber-optic light cable to prevent fires in the operating room. During scope procedures, the fiber-optic light cables exceed 500 degrees Fahrenheit at the distal ends, putting patients and staff at risk of burns and fires. Installed at the beginning of the procedure, the device allows for easy engagement and blocks most of the cable light upon scope disconnection.
