Surgical Instruments in C-section

  1. 0
    Can anyone direct me to a website that can give me a list and pictures of what surgical instruments are used in C-sections. I just started as a nurse tech in Labor and delivery and would really appreciate the help. I have been looking and looking and can't find a thing. Thanks ahead of time.

    I can't direct you to a website...I don't know of any, but I can give you a list of most common. You can go to central services in your facility and familiarize yourself with each. Usually the facility can open a pack for you to look at so you can see the instruments and get used to how the instruments are strung.

    Here's a common list:

    Hemostats (used for bleeders, blunt dissection)
    Kelley's
    Kocher's (used for faschia, and sometimes to clamp the umbilical cord)
    Long Kelley's (also used for umbilical cords)
    Allis
    Allis Adairs (some MD's use these to clamp uterine "bleeders")
    Babcocks (used for tubal ligations)
    Sponge sticks (also used on the uterus)
    Penningtons (uterus)
    Needle drivers
    Bandage scissors (to cut cord)
    Straight mayos (suture scissors)
    Curved Mayos (anatomy scissors)
    Metzenbaum scissors (used for the bladder flap and fine tissues)

    Pickups:
    Russians (uterus)
    Bonnies
    Adsons (skin)
    Smooth pick ups (bladder flap)
    Pick ups with teeth

    Retractors:
    Bladder blade
    Small and large richardson
    Gule (spelling?)

    extra:
    bulb syringe
    a couple of cord clamps
    cord blood tube
    needle counter
    towels
    rayotec and laps

    I think that is it....

    Good luck, and get your manager to get you an open tray to familiarize yourself!

    you can purchase a pretty good pdf for $12 on this website - but sitting down with the tray is the best way to learn - good luck!
