The operating table

Operating tables are in widespread use and vary in complexity. They are often long lasting, which means that many staff and users will not have been exposed to manufacturer's education.

The module is intended to be an overview of the operating table, including:

  • its use and history
  • details of how and why the basic system works
  • some valuable do's and don'ts when using operating tables

This training is aimed at all operating theatre staff including surgeons, assistants, anaesthetist, scrub staff and operating department practitioners. The package runs for around 15 minutes. You may require more time to re-read and review specific areas and to undertake the attached questions.
