Introduction Patient transfer Hand table positioning Tourniquet application Draping Appropriate cautery care Maintenance of sterile field Taking down drapes
Patient Transfer Lock bed and position as close as possible to the OR bed at the same height Patient transfer – Under own power – Draw sheet Wear gloves and eye protection!!!
Hand Table Positioning Most designs lock to side of OR table. Important to secure Legs deployed and flat on floor, no rocking
