Lister Bandage Scissors. Nursing Scissors.
Lister Bandage Scissors are a versatile instrument with multiple and many uses. They are commonly used for removing circumferential bandages and sizing dressings. They may also be used to cut tougher material such as plaster, fabric and occasionally umbilical cord. The jaws of the Lister Bandage Scissors are angled with the lower blade being slightly longer. The tip of the lower blade of scissors features a flattened blunt nodule that is intended to slide between bandages and skin without harming the skin. This feature allows these nursing Scissors to occasionally be used during cesarean section to open the uterus without causing inadvertent injury to the baby. Ring handles can be equal in size or with one ring larger.
It is unclear where or how they originated. There is record dating back to 1956 of Preston J. Burnham, M.D. of Salt Lake City using the well known angled blade as opposed to scissors that are straight. There is also mention of bandage scissors within clinical notes on a tape dispenser dating from 1948 although the photo is unclear as to the shape of the scissors
