Provides continued study of surgical team participation by wound management and technological sciences for the operating room. Topics include: technological sciences; patient care concepts; preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative surgical technology; and perioperative case management. ((There are surgical procedures that are similar as far as procedural steps, instrumentation, supplies, patient position, etc. This is referred to as the "Co-Related Procedures Concept." The purpose of using the Co-Related Procedures Concept is to provide the instructor additional time to teach surgical procedures as well as avoid repetition.))
