Surgical Instruments


Know how to draw your tools.

This week, my class was introduced to surgical instruments. These are the tools surgeons use when performing operations. The assignments is to draft line illustrations of the instruments in perspective.

During our introduction to surgical instruments we learned there are a lot of different tools, however only a few main functions. Functions pertaining to the instruments I have chosen are cutting/dissecting ( the wire suture and rongeur) and clamping ( the hemostat). I still need to decide on one more instrument falling under the function of grasping, exposing and retracting, or suturing/closing. Hopefully I can find a nice
self-retaining Weitlaner retractor as a reference!
