Sponge Counts

  1. Hello all,

    I'm putting together a report on the incidence of retained foreign objects (including sponges) and I have been trying, in vain, to come up with an estimate on how many sponges are used, on average, per surgery. Can anyone help me with this?

    Thanks in advance!

    I could possibly. Assuming swabs/sponges are the same size in the USA as they are in UK?

    You'd need to post which procedures you were estimating though.
