Surgical procedure – knee arthroscopy

image description

The operating room, a special place in the operating suite and throughout the hospital, it must comply with the relevant conditions providing safety for patient and staff – to carry out the operation. In the operating room there should be maintained increased health regime, so that it does not become a place where a patient can get infected. Accordingly, the operating room staff requires to maintain specific discipline, show high expertise and relevant skills.

Contemporary built operating suites have air-conditioned operating rooms, thus eliminating the need to install radiators in such places (habitat of dust and pathogenic microflora). The lack of windows also limits the access of air pollutants (mainly bacteria and fungi).

All the operating conditions should be created to safely perform surgical procedures, in accordance with the principles of asepsis. The layout of rooms forming the operating suite should be divided into a dirty, clean, and sterile area and force a one-way movement of staff, patients and sterile material. To ensure the safety of the performed procedure, attention should be paid to all the particular stages, starting with the preparation of material required for the procedure.

Taking an example of a knee arthroscopy procedure we want to show how to properly protect a patient using the components of the set.

All the used elements are the components of the OP-set.
