The sterile instrument table steristay maintains the sterility of the instruments and implants during surgery

A main problem especially in long operations is the contamination of surgical instruments due to human presence and their activity within the operating room. Even in more modern operating theatres with a large ceiling-mounted laminar flow system, the instruments are almost always prepared outside the sterile zone and have thus lost their sterility before they are used. After one hour of surgery, the bacterial loads on the instruments are already very high. For elderly or immunosuppressed patients or in the presence of prostheses, even a very low bacterial load is enough to cause infection or rejection of the prosthesis . In an conventional operating room you can expect about 50 to 200 CFU/m3. This number is rising the more people are in the operating room and the longer the operation last. As few as 10 colony forming units (CFU/m3) are sufficient to cause a deep infection*. Gosden PE, Mac GowanAP Bannister GC J. Hosp Infect 1998;

The sterile surgical instrument table maintains the sterility of the instrument table even during long operations and reduces therefore the risk of an surgical site infection SSI.

Focused laminar flow systems: the air is filtered through hepa filters free of microorganisms and then directed immediately onto the surgical instruments and surgical site. It is only then distributed throughout the operating theatre. This protects the critical area of the operating theatre, i.e. the instruments and the surgical site. With this system, the bacterial load on the instruments and surgical site is reduced by more than 95% compared with conventional ventilation systems

There are different models of instrument tables with different sizes to comply with the needs for every surgeon and instrument nurse. The operio instrument table is removable and available in different sizes (450 x 600 mm, 450 x 750 mm). For orthopaedic surgery, cardiac surgery and all surgeries who need a bigger instrument table we recommend the use of steristay instrument table (1330 x 600 mm) or operio without instrument table . On request there is also the possibility to use an removable prolongation kit of 400 mm additional cm (e.g. tavi application). All instrument tables have an electric height adjustment which can directly be activated by the sterile nurse or surgeon also during operation.
Instruments can always be prepared in the zone protected by the focused laminar air flow unit, thus maintaining their sterility even during long operations. At the start of surgery, the instrument table prepared under focused laminar air flow is simply moved towards the surgical site and the focused laminar flow also protects the surgical wound area. The electrical height adjustment ensures the perfect height for each operation.
