Hello!

I just started in an OR that does a lot of breast cases (e.g sentinel lymph node biopsies, partial mastectomies, lumpectomies, etc.). Thus I was exposed to unfamiliar equipment, and I want to know in what instances/surgeries would we use the following: neoprobe, Faxitron, ultrasound machine?

 

also, on a side note: is there a trick to changing the co2 tanks in a laparoscopic tower easily? I’m having a tough time

Please seek this information from your preceptor, a colleague, or your supervisor as there are many different set ups between different facilities. They would be best to guide you on the equipment specifically used by your facility as well as surgeon preferences.
