Regarding the mayo stand
Regarding the Mayo Stand

  • Mayo stand set ups vary per individual preferences

  • The key to a functional mayo stand is organization and tidiness

  • This is an on going process throughout the surgical procedure

  • Instruments must be kept clean and replaced each time you use them if you know you will not need them again

  • Do not replace instruments you know will be needed shortly after you have received them

  • Awareness of operative sequence is paramount to knowing instrumentation usages

  • This makes for ease of counting when you know where your instruments are at all times!
