The operation theatres of Medicover Woman and Child are well-equipped, advanced, and sterile. The patient's safety in the operating room begins even before the patient reaches the operating room. Temperature and humidity in the OT are adjusted on a regular basis to provide a healthy atmosphere for a quick recovery.
Strict aseptic precautions and a sterile atmosphere are maintained in all operation theatres across all facilities by employing special filters.
The highly trained team of specialists guarantees that surgical treatments are as easy and comfortable for you as possible. The Operation Theatre department takes pleasure in providing high-quality treatment in a clean and friendly environment. The staff knows that you may be frightened or nervous before surgery and will do everything possible to put you at rest.
Each surgical specialty has its own team of theatre employees, operating department practitioners, nurses, and theatre assistants, who are all supported by sterile services personnel, theatre porters, and theatre administrators. These support teams collaborate closely with surgeons and anesthesiologists to provide the best possible care for patients.
There is also a tight working connection with the critical care complex, which is located in the theatre area and is used for patients who require intensive care after surgery. This unit has its own team of therapists and expert nurses.
Operating room equipment
The operating table in the center of the room may be adjusted in any direction by raising, lowering, and tilting it.
The operating room lights are placed above the operating table to give strong light without casting shadows during operation.
The anesthetic machine is positioned at the top of the operating table. This equipment contains tubes that attach to the patient to help them breathe during surgery, as well as built-in monitors that help regulate the gas mixture in the breathing circuit.
The anesthetic cart is located beside the anesthesia machine. It contains the anesthesiologist's medicines, equipment, and other supplies.
Sterile surgical tools are positioned on a stainless steel table.
An electronic monitor (which uses adhesive patches on the patient's chest to record the patient's heart rate and breathing rate).
An elastic band-aid secures the pulse oximeter equipment to the patient's finger. It determines the quantity of oxygen in the blood.
Automated blood pressure measurement system that inflates the blood pressure cuff on the patient's arm automatically.
An electrocautery machine utilizes high-frequency electrical impulses to cauterize or shut off blood vessels, as well as to cut through tissue with little bleeding.
A heart-lung machine or other specialist equipment may be brought into the room if surgery is required.
Surgeon and Assistants' equipment
PPE (personal protective equipment) is used in the operating room to help prevent germs from invading the surgical wound. This PPE consists of the following items:
Germless cleanrooms are similar to standard cleanrooms.
A protective hat covering their hair Masks over their lower faces, covering their mouths and nostrils with minimum gaps to avoid plume or airborne microbe inhalation.
Shades or glasses over their eyes, including specialized colored spectacles for usage with various lasers. For improved visibility, a fiber-optic lamp can be added.
Due to latex sensitivity, which affects some health care personnel and patients, sterile gloves are generally latex-free.
Long gowns with the bottom of the gown no more than six inches from the ground.
Their shoes have protective coverings.
Lead aprons/neck coverings are worn if x-rays are likely to be utilized to prevent overexposure to radiation.
The surgeon may also use special glasses that enable him or her to see more clearly. Because they are not part of the sterile team, the circulating nurse and anesthesiologist will not wear gowns in the OR. They must keep a distance of 12-16 inches from any sterile object, person, or field.
