Basic laparoscopy: Cholecystectomy 07.08.00 On-patient equipment preparation and checks

07.08.00 on table equipment.JPG



The on-patient equipment set ups and checks described here are from one surgeon.


There are countless alternatives, since there is a very large range of different manufacturers continually producing up dates and


developments.



The information here provides a guide for the trainee, a host of useful tips, and are a source for further discussion.


The procedure described here starts with fitting and checking the equipment to the right of the surgeon.


Ie 2 tubes and 2 wires (1 Irrigation tubing, 1 Suction tubing and 2 Diathermy leads).


2 diathermy leads are needed because our diathermy hook and the dissecting forceps happen to have different connections.


The procedure then describes the fitting and checking of the equipment to the left of the surgeon.


This is a logical sequence, which, if followed, should avoid any errors or omissions.
