Tables, Operating

Definition : Tables that include an appropriate (e.g., metal, plastic) top surface supported by a fixed pedestal or a movable swivel caster base. Most tables are divided into three or more hinged sections (e.g., head, body, legs) and are raised and lowered by mechanical or hydraulic systems using manual or electric controls. These tables support the patient's body during surgical procedures, stabilizing the patient's position and providing for optimal exposure of the surgical field. Operating tables are also designed to protect the patient from excessive manipulation, trauma, and abrasion.
