Frequently Asked Questions About Surgical Instruments
How many varieties of surgical instruments are there?
There are over 5000+ varieties of instruments, ranging from simple single piece tools to more complex retractors, each serving different surgical purposes and coming in various lengths and shapes such as straight and curved.
What are the different categories of surgical instruments?
Surgical instruments are grouped into various categories including artery forceps, dissecting forceps, tissue forceps, clamps, retractors, scissors, needle holders, towel clips, and dissectors/probes. Each category consists of multiple brands and models tailored for specific procedures.
What materials are surgical instruments made of?
Most surgical instruments are crafted from stainless steel. In the past, carbon steel with plating was utilized, but this was less ideal due to the risk of flaking plating.
How are surgical instruments named?
Surgical instruments are typically named after their creator, the area of use, and their type. For example, the Spencer Wells Artery Forceps was named after its creator, where it’s used, and its function as a forceps.
What is the recommended method for reprocessing surgical instruments?
Always adhere to the manufacturer’s instructions and local protocols such as HTM 01-01 when reprocessing surgical instruments.
Is there a special type of steel for surgical instruments?
No, surgical instruments are typically made from stainless steel, particularly the 420 range, which is deemed suitable for surgical use.
Why do surgical instruments rust?
Surgical instruments can corrode if left wet, as stainless steel contains iron and carbon. Other factors like biological residue, washing chemicals, and sterilization quality can also contribute to corrosion.
Are there risks associated with laser marking surgical instruments?
Yes, laser marking can expose free iron, potentially leading to corrosion if not properly treated before washing. Seek guidance from organizations like ABHI or your instrument supplier for advice.
