Recently, a private hospital customer called. The customer bought our C-arm X-ray machine last year and asked about the problem of electric radiation and how to protect patients and doctors during the operation.
When the operation Department sends out the operation notice, it should indicate the C-arm X-ray machine and its irradiation position in the notice. So that the operating room can arrange the operation and prepare the protective materials and personnel.
2. The nurses should inform the patients of the significance of intraoperative examination and get the understanding and cooperation of the patients. At the same time, we should know the general situation of patients, such as whether there is pacemaker, steel plate, screw, intramedullary needle, etc. Tell the patient to remove the metal objects before the operating room to prevent C-arm X-ray machine shadow.
The protection during operation includes the protection of doctors, nurses and patients: the surgeons carefully check the patients before operation and read X-rays and c-films. To understand the characteristics of anatomic sites and to be familiar with the imaging of bony structures. All the irradiations that can not bring diagnostic and therapeutic significance to patients should not be carried out. All the irradiations should be kept at a reasonable level as low as possible on the premise of considering the diagnosis and benefits of patients. Improve operation skills and minimize exposure times and time. A large operating room should be selected to put the mobile C-arm machine, and the walls and doors need to be equipped with protective layers.
Patient protection: medical staff should not ignore the protection of patients and patients just because they come to the hospital for examination and treatment (operation). Patients should also have self-protection consciousness and refuse unreasonable medical exposure. In order to avoid unnecessary X-ray exposure, proper X-ray examination methods should be selected and correct examination and treatment procedures should be designed.
