Operation Theatre

Advance Operation Theatre

An operating theater, also known as an operating room or operating suite or operation theatre or operation room or operation suite is a facility within a hospital where surgical operations are carried out in a sterile environment. Historically, the term "operating theatre" referred to a non-sterile, tiered theater or amphitheater in which students and other spectators could watch surgeons perform surgery.

Operating room equipment

-The operating table in the center of the room can be raised, lowered, and tilted in any direction.
-The operating room lights are over the table to provide bright light, without shadows, during surgery.
-The anesthesia machine is at the head of the operating table. This machine has tubes that connect to the patient to assist him or her in breathing during surgery, and built-in monitors that help control the mixture of gases in the breathing circuit.
-The anesthesia cart is next to the anesthesia machine. It contains the medications, equipment, and other supplies that the anesthesiologist may need.
-Sterile instruments to be used during surgery are arranged on a stainless steel table.
-An electronic monitor (which records the heart rate and respiratory rate by adhesive patches that are placed on the patient's chest).
-The pulse oximeter machine attaches to the patient's finger with an elastic band aid. It measures the amount of oxygen contained in the blood.
-Automated blood pressure measuring machine that automatically inflates the blood pressure cuff on patient's arm.
-An electrocautery machine uses high frequency electrical signals to cauterize or seal off blood vessels and may also be used to cut through tissue with a minimal amount of bleeding.
