Tape, gel rolls, foam, and a whole lot of pushing and pulling usually go into positioning our patients for surgery. Silk tape is our best friend! But, are we positioning patients the safest way for their procedure, and do our current positioning practices help prevent injury? On today’s episode of First Case, we’re going to explore the world of patient positioning with David Gomez, CRNA and CEO, CTO of Infinitus Medical Technologies, LLC. We’ll discuss our current practices, statistics on patient injuries, and even learn how the heavy lifting of positioning patients is injuring our own employees.
