Surgical Tech Travel Jobs
What Do Surgical Techs Do?
A surgical technologist, also called a surgical tech or operating room tech, is a skilled healthcare professional who works closely with surgeons, anesthesiologists, and nurses to ensure safe and sterile operating room environments. The primary responsibilities of surgical techs involve preparing operating rooms before surgeries by laying out surgical instruments and equipment, sterile drapes, and sterile solutions.
During surgical procedures, techs pass necessary tools and equipment directly to surgeons in a sterile manner to limit contamination. They may hold retractors, cut sutures, and help adjust lights or equipment as needed. Surgical techs also monitor the inventory of supplies, restocking when needed. They apply their knowledge of human anatomy to anticipate what implements the surgeon will need throughout the procedure.
Because surgical assistants are so essential, this can be a lucrative, fulfilling career for health care professionals. If you're curious about surgical tech jobs and opportunities, look to Health Carousel Travel Nursing.
