scrub in ortho?

  1. Hi does anyone scrub in ortho? I don't scrub a lot in ortho and always feel lost whenever I do... esp. for total hips and knee replacements. Does anyone have any suggestions as far as instrumentation and technique?

    We have some photos of mayo stand set ups that the doctors like as well as some back table set-ups that were done by some of our better techs. Then when a tech is uneasy about it they literally tape on the wall and go off of that. Our totals are seem pretty routine unless it is a revision or extreme case, maybe ask to do a full well of them to get the hang of it? Are the reps there? You could ask for them to stand in for help or sometimes they have helpful diagrams too.
