In detailThese surgical sponges are supplied by the American Red Cross. They are packed in a kraft paper whose volume differs according to the model of surgical compresses whose size varies. This set belonged to a lot discovered in France in 2017, stored in a garage since 1944. A paper label comes to specify the model, the denomination and the manufacturer.
