World of Surgical Instruments - The Definitive Inspection Textbook

The purpose of this book is to assist Sterile Processing personnel, Surgery personnel, and Surgical technicians in identifying critical inspection points for surgical instruments. In addition, the instrument’s proper name, length, use, and sharpness test standards are described. The idea for this book originated from the hundreds of lectures Rick Schultz has given throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. Proper inspection and testing of surgical instruments improves quality, which not only benefits the patient, but also serves as an ergonomic gain for the healthcare institution.

Executing a surgical procedure takes teamwork and knowledge. This illustrated textbook completes the circle of knowledge and helps provide the surgeon with instruments that have been properly inspected and safe to use.

This book is recommended reading for the Certified Instrument Specialist exam.
