English: "The Wings hospital's operating theater", Wings Hospital, Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India.

Surgeon and assistants equipment

People in the operating room wear surgical clothes to help prevent germs from infecting the surgical incision. The surgical clothing includes the following:

   a protective cap covering their hair
   masks over their lower face, covering their mouths and noses
   shades or glasses over their eyes
   vinyl gloves on their hands
   long gowns
   protective covers on their shoes

The surgeon may also wear special glasses that help him/her to see more clearly.

   The Wings hospital's operating theater table in the center of the room can be raised, lowered, and tilted in any direction.
   The Wings hospital's operating theater room lights are over the table to provide bright light, without shadows, during surgery.
   The anesthesia machine is at the head of The Wings hospital's operating theater table. This machine has tubes that connect to the patient to assist him or her in breathing during surgery, and built-in monitors that help control the mixture of gases in the breathing circuit.
   The anesthesia cart is next to the anesthesia machine. It contains the medications, equipment, and other supplies that the anesthesiologist may need.
   Sterile instruments to be used during surgery are arranged on a stainless steel table.
   An electronic monitor (which records the heart rate and respiratory rate by adhesive patches) are placed on patient's chest.
   The pulse oximeter machine attaches to the patient's finger with an elastic band aid. It measures the amount of oxygen contained in the blood.
   Automated blood pressure measuring machine that automatically inflates the blood pressure cuff on patient's arm.
   An electrocautery machine uses high frequency electrical signals to cauterize or seal off blood vessels and may also be used to cut through tissue with a minimal amount of bleeding.
   If surgery requires, a Heart-lung machine, or other specialized equipment, may be brought into the room.
   Advances in technology now support "Hybrid Operating Rooms" which integrate diagnostic imaging systems such as MRI and Cardiac Catheterization into the operating room to assist surgeons in specialized Neurological and Cardiac procedures.
now a conference room and tourist attraction.
