US Army medical course - Introduction to the Operating Room
A patient scheduled for surgery will have his operation performed by specially trained personnel working in a highly specialized area of the hospital. This area--the operating room (OR) suite--has an environment suited to its needs, but one quite different from that in the rest of the hospital. All activities in the OR suite are centered around the best possible care of the patient. The purpose of this course is to familiarize you with certain aspects of the OR environment that will provide you with a basis for understanding your role as an OR specialist and enable you to enhance the performance of duties assigned to you in the care of the patient.
Lesson 1, Orientation.
Lesson 2, Operating Room Personnel, Policies, and Nomenclature.
Lesson 3, Safety in the Operating Room.
