Description
The operating room is the core part of the operation department, providing the surgical operation and rescue for the patient. Most modern operating room is clean and air purified, and has strict and reasonable construction process and aseptic operation standards.


Operating rooms are spacious, easy to clean, and well-lit, typically with overhead surgical lights, and may have viewing screens and monitors. Operating rooms are generally windowless and feature controlled temperature and humidity. Special air handlers filter the air and maintain a slightly elevated pressure. Electricity support has backup system in case of a black-out. Rooms are supplied with wall suction, oxygen, and possibly other anesthetic gases. Key equipment consists of the operating table and the anesthesia cart. In addition, there are tables to set up instruments. There is storage space for common surgical supplies. There are containers for disposables. Outside the operating room is a dedicated scrubbing area that is used by surgeons, anesthetists, operating department practitioners, and nurses prior to surgery. An operating room will have a map to enable the terminal cleaner to realign the operating table and equipment to the desired layout during cleaning.

Operating room equipment is normally configured and laid out as follows.
1. The operating table in the center of the room can be raised, lowered, and tilted in any direction.
2. The operating room lights are over the table to provide bright light, without shadows, during surgery.
3. The anesthesia machine is at the head of the operating 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.
4. The anesthesia cart is next to the anesthesia machine. It contains the medications, equipment, and other supplies that the anesthesiologist may need.
5. Sterile instruments to be used during surgery are arranged on a stainless steel table.
6. An electronic monitor which records the heart rate and respiratory rate by adhesive patches that are placed on the patient's chest.
7. 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.
8. Automated blood pressure measuring machine that automatically inflates the blood pressure cuff on patient's arm.
9. 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.
10. If surgery requires, a heart-lung machine, or other sp'ecialized equipment, may be brought into the room. Heart-lung machine takes the temporary control of the heart and lung during the surgery maintaining the circulation of blood and oxygen content of the body.
11. Advances in technology now support hy'brid operating rooms, which integrates diagnostic imaging systems such as MRI and cardiac catheterization into the operating room to assist surgeons in sp'ecialized neurological and cardiac procedures.
