If you’re looking to control and maintain fair exposure then its crucial to have a bloodless, dry field paramount to good exposure. Suction and sponging should be performed so as to give the best exposure with the least interruption of the surgeon’s dissection. The sucker tip of your surgical instrument should lead in front of your dissection using your forceps, The general practitioner should be certain not to risk his view of the operation at hand. Also he should be alert at which direction any of his surgical instruments are heading including: forceps, dilators, and surgical scissors, etc. The doctors assistants should be on aware of the surgeon when hes using his surgical instruments sucking or sponging, it is good to synchronize the wound, as opposed to the surgeon removing his surgical instruments, then removes the sucker tip after aspirating all of the free blood, the surgeon might want to take a breather while he’s getting ready for the next task at hand. It is, therefore, better to synchronize removal of the aspirating tip or sponge just as the doctor enters the wound.
There’s some hazard of aspiration injury to tissue from sucker tips with a single terminal opening. A finger hole on the handle of such surgical instruments is usually provided to minimize the suction if the terminal opening is occluded against tissue. the idea of covering the finger hole whenever you desire to suck, to avoid the suction, release the hole, it will “accentuate the positive” and can avoid an inadvertent trauma.
When you aspire on some delicate tissue, the interposition of fabric such as a sponge or cottonoid will allow the elimination of fluid without the hazard of tissue trauma. Sucker tips should be adequate for the job at hand. There are a variety of sucker tips, from very big ones with holes that big enough to clot up large amounts of blood, to the more fine tips.
