Personal Protective Equipment and COVID-19 updates July 05 2020

July 2020 Updates

While the supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) has improved over time, judicious use of PPE remains critical as cases of COVID-19 in many portions of the United States are starting to surge. 

For those trying to determine how many units of StethoBarrier sleeves or other equipment to order, the CDC has released a Burn Rate Calculator to assist in inventory management:

We are continuing to supply and re-stock the Plastic full length disposable stethoscope cover as this cover is splash proof and our recommended cover for droplet precautions/COVID-19.

Diaphragm covers will be re-stocked in mid-July 2020. Non-woven full length covers are currently available. 

If you have a product availability inquiry submit your question at and we would be happy to assist you.

We are here to help and support our front line providers as you care for patients during this time.
