Left uncovered, it can take as little as 30 minutes for opened sterile instrument trays to be contaminated in the operating room.1
The Sterile-Z Back Table Cover is designed to comply with AORN’s recommendations for protecting the sterile field during double setups, pre-incision, positioning, clean closures, delays, or increased activities. This surgical back table drape can protect instruments from contamination for up to eight hours.2 The back table cover is available in a standard size as well as an extra-large size that is ideal for two-tiered tables.
To make protecting sterile fields even easier and more intuitive for nurses and OR staff, TIDI recently updated the Sterile-Z Back Table Cover in the following ways:
