Us Army Medical Course - Routine Procedures For An Operation
When you are assigned to scrub or to circulate for an operation, you are expected to
perform a series of tasks in the manner established by local policy and in the order
prescribed. These tasks begin with the preparation for the surgical procedure and
continue until the case is finished and the cleanup of the room is complete.
The tasks are done so as to protect the sterile setup, to prevent fires and explosions,
and to expedite the surgical procedure. The underlying purpose of all the tasks is to
afford maximum protection to the patient while rendering the best care possible.
