When patients have to think about having a surgical procedure, they sometimes react with anxiety and fear. The effects of these feelings are far-reaching. Though the body is programmed to experience stress and react to it appropriately, this is a fight or flight response in reaction to danger. When it comes to facing a challenge or a situation that cannot be easily avoided or overcome stress-related tension builds. In this case a person becomes distressed and that has physical effects on the body such as: upset stomachs, elevated blood pressure, headaches, and chest pain. As you can imagine, the helplessness of leaving your health in the hands of another person during surgery only increases this distress. The aforementioned physical ailments put patients in danger and only serve to increase postoperative pain and delay healing times. Therefore, it only makes sense to make your surgical patients as comfortable as possible. This can be achieved, in part, by investing in the correct medical equipment, such as Skytron tables. These tables are made to be sturdy, long-lasting, and best of all, comfortable which will help the patient to relax, taking away some of the stress.
When considering the most effective surgical table for an OR, there are a few must haves that should be on the list. For example, the tables should rotate to allow ultimate access for the surgeon and OR staff. With Skytron tables, they have a top slide feature permitting quick movement of the patient through an imaging window. Top rotation of the table will accommodate c-arms, which are specialized x-ray machines. There is even enough leg-room for a surgeon to be seated. The tables simply make imaging less risky for the patients and the OR staff. Another plus is that the back and leg sections of Skytron tables are removable. This will allow you to use any of the large range of accessories that are go with these surgical beds.
