This module provides an overview of how to prepare for minor surgical procedures, correctly open the surgical instrument pack, and add required sterile instruments, while using a sterile technique. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers two scenarios that test your ability to prepare for minor surgical procedures. Practice the steps of the procedures as often as you want until you are confident.

If you are not a medical student or physician, you may prefer the other version of this module, which includes all the procedural information needed by professionals in other roles: /shop/clinical/medical-assisting/surgical-procedures/prepare-for-minor-surgical-procedures/

You’ll learn

  • the process for opening a sterile pack and creating a sterile field
  • the processes for transferring sterile instruments and for pouring sterile solution onto a sterile field
  • to visualize the "anatomy" of a surgical pack: what it looks like before and after opening, its contents, and an example of how these and additional instruments are laid out for the physician
  • to practice and perfect your skills in preparing for a minor surgical procedure
  • much more (see Content Details for more specific information)
