Fact 3 – Flammable surgical prep solutions

Flammable / Alcohol based preparation agents

They must dry before draping the patient,

BECAUSE

The alcohol vapor accumulates under the drapes and they might ignite fire when using a heat source (electrocautery, laser, drill, or fiberoptic).

🇵🇹

Agentes antissépticos inflamáveis:

Devem secar antes da colocação dos campos cirúrgicos sobre o doente,

PORQUE o vapor do álcool acumula-se por debaixo dos campos cirúrgicos

e pode provocar um incêndio ao usar uma fonte de calor

(tais como: eletrocautério, laser, berbequim cirúrgico, ou fibra óptica)
