Sterile-Z Covers

What is Sterile-Z?
The Sterile-Z Back Table cover is a barrier that helps maintain the sterile field during application and removal. It is placed on top of the sterile back table and/or Mayo stand setup.
 
Why Sterile-Z in your OR?
AORN Guidelines state, "Cover the sterile field if it will not be used immediately (e.g., procedural delay, sterile field for closure, multiple tables) or during periods of increased activity (e.g. pre-incision, repositioning). If the sterile field is in use, the portion of the sterile field that will not be immediately used (e.g. implants, instruments not in use) may be covered."

Sterile-Z's patented Z-fold technology can help your staff maintain sterility during surgical events. 
 

Back tables can be contaminated in as little as 30 minutes when exposed to air in the OR.2
