Preparing The, Surgical Instruments Quizlet

Preparing The, Surgical Instruments Quizlet, before bringing the patient to the block. During this time, staff decide: about the order of treatments, in which room will individual patients be operated, and what will be the composition of the operating team

the condition of tools and material in addition, so that in the event of deficiencies have time to supplement / sterilize them. Instrumentalists collect equipment needed for surgery in rooms: coagulation, mammal, laparoscope, arm C. Before surgery, you always need to think about which of these devices will be in the room. Thanks to this, you can decide on the optimal arrangement of equipment, tables with instruments and staff.

Some of them need additional material – a coagulation neutral electrode, C-arm – sterile shields, mammal – cord and bag, laparoscope: optical fiber, optics and wires. Once you know what additional equipment will be in the room, you need to think about the operation itself. We Preparing The, Surgical Instruments depending on the block profile, tools are divided into packages in terms of body parts (orthopedics) of the course of surgery (surgery) or technique (laparoscopic / open). If you do not know the packages yet and are not sure whether the tools from the given set are sufficient or you do not remember its contents, it is good to look in the tool list.

Superficial  Patient Information:

However, if the patient is slim and the procedure is more superficial, e.g. hand, shorter and more delicate tools are sufficient. We prepare the sewing material in the same way. If you do not know the packages yet and are not sure whether the tools from the given set are sufficient or you do not remember its contents, it is good to look in the tool list. There should be a list of pledges and tools in each set on each block. It is also helpful to recall the course of surgery and anatomy of the structures it will deal with. If the patient is large and obese and the procedure is performed in deep tissues, e.g. abdomen, longer tools will be needed.

We check each set against the expiry date and the tightness of the packaging.In addition, we choose surgical underwear and aprons. For more bloody, urological, arthroscopic surgeries, where there is a chance of “flooding” the operator, we take a waterproof apron – reinforced with a special layer protecting against leakage. For dry operations, standard ones are sufficient. We select individually for each team member depending on the size of gloves and apron.

Moreover Surgical Instruments Quizlet choice of gloves is particularly important – they pinch small fingers causing pain, hinder maneuvers with their hands until they finally break, which may endanger the sterility of the operating field – they attach too much to tools, giving something we can grab the end of the glove by damaging it or dropping the tool. It may seem a trivial matter, but whining a doctor will be troublesome and certainly will not let us forget about it.

End of the Scarf:

After checking the instruments, we check the material – gauze, scarves, setons, peas.  It is good to fasten peas and cotton swabs on the tool and have it ready to serve. At the end of the scarf, if there is no radiation cord, we also fasten the tool. The clean Surgical Instruments Quizlet records the condition of the dressing material so that it can be checked quickly and efficiently after the operation. We check the compliance of the material constantly – at the beginning of the operation, at the end and during.

Surgical Instruments Quizlet (Blade is Used Several Times):

We put the blade on the handle. The smaller the cut, the smaller the blade can be. During the procedure, if the blade is used several times, it is good to change it first because of its blunting, and secondly so as not to transfer flora from different tissues. I take the blade off and always put it on with a vice. I think it is as convenient and quick as putting it on without a tool (you shouldn’t do it, but well … some people do it) and a million times safer.

When preparing the scalpel – the blade and handle must point downwards, so we can be sure that if it bounces or breaks it will fall onto the table and not land in the eye or cut us. Needles are fastened on a vice in its 2/3 so that the needle does not change direction when puncturing. Some surgeons like it when pean is fastened at the end of the thread, then it is easy to find the end. Others get upset and prefer when the end of the thread is secured by the assistant.

Sharp instruments – including needles and blades, it is good to put them in one place. Then we will certainly not stumble, looking for something on the table. Even better when the place is away from the hands of an operator who can lean on the table and hurt.

The absolute “must have” that we need at the beginning of the operation, regardless of what block we work with, is a blade, suture and preparation scissors, peans, blankets, surgical (with teeth) and anatomical, coagulation / electric knife. And then nothing is known ..
