AORN Guidelines state, "Cover the sterile field if it will not be used immediately (e.g., procedural delay, sterile field for closure, multiple tables) or during periods of increased activity (e.g. pre-incision, repositioning). If the sterile field is in use, the portion of the sterile field that will not be immediately used (e.g. implants, instruments not in use) may be covered."
Sterile-Z helps maintain the sterile field during application and removal. These drapes aid in reducing the risk of contamination on the surgical back table and mayo stand.
*Back tables can be contaminated in as little as 30 minutes when exposed to air in the OR.
