You were able to get the funding and space to open a bioskills lab. Congratulations! A Cadaver lab build-out requires planning. Let's look at what you need to be successful with your lab. Whether you are setting up a cadaver lab with five stations or 50, it is crucial to ensure you have all the equipment, accessories, and tools that you may need.
Refurbished products, whether that be computers, phones or medical equipment are products that have been restored to factory specifications and tested before they reach the hands of the customer.
Cadaver labs are for students and other medical professionals to have hands-on experience working with the human body, as well as equipment and new surgical techniques that advance their continuing education. Surgeons are invited to laboratories around the world to become certified in certain products and procedures. These labs assist surgeons perfect their surgical technique, and allows surgeons to work with different body types and sizes as well as equipment that allow them to be more prepared when in the surgery room.
The use of operating room surgical tables can be dated all the way back to the 18th century. Doctors used “surgical chairs” and restraints to hold patients up when they would become unconscious during surgery. Lithotomy tables came shortly after and were able to hold patients in a semi-vertical position allowing doctors to restrain the arms and hands; soon thereafter, doctors and surgeons used long wooden benches supported by adjustable legs and backrests. These benches were covered in a wool rug or horsehair mattress covered in a waterproof covering. Thankfully, technology has come a long way and we are far from chairs with restraints and horsehair mattresses.
Refurbished medical equipment has the potential to save doctors’ offices, hospitals and surgery centers thousands of dollars without putting patient safety at risk.
Have you thought about selling your used medical equipment to be refurbished? This process reduces the amount of equipment in landfills and allows for other healthcare facilities to purchase this lifesaving equipment for their practice at a fraction of the cost.
The types of surgical systems fall into 3 categories Battery, Pneumatic, and Electric. Let’s take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of each.
By the time rust or corrosion is present on the outside of a unit, the inside is completely covered. A little bit of rust on the outside may seem small, but it is a sure sign of a needed repair.
