This series covers some of the basic skills, surgical instruments, and sterile techniques commonly used in the operating room. These videos were filmed in a non-sterile training lab. Always wear appropriate attire (head cover, mask, eye protection, shoe covers, sterile gown, and sterile gloves) when working within a sterile field. Follow the policies and procedures set by your institution. Students are encouraged to seek guidance from their professors and preceptors, and to follow their instructions.
