Oasis Disposable Sterile Skin Stapler Review

Oasis Disposable Sterile Skin Stapler

This package comes sealed and disinfected. It’s disposable, and has enough staples for larger gashes. The lack of post use sterility means that it’s usable only for one deep gash, but that is likely all most hikes would need, because a cut that deserves this product will lead to extreme care from that point on as you would turn around and head straight back to the car and a hospital.

After reading several reviews on the problems of larger gashes, this seems like the simplest, cleanest, fastest way to close up a wound. Coupled with quikclot or some other clotting/disinfectant, my hope is that after just about any incident, I would be able to make it back to my car without risk of infection. For smaller cuts, I think a suture kit would be the better choice, especially if the smaller cut isn’t bleeding profusely.

The one problem is that this device takes up a lot of space. So ideally, you wouldn’t have more than one in a backpack. But who knows, it may save a life one day, and you can never be too prepared.
