In brief: Surgery pointers
Be sure to eat prior so glucose level stays up.
Wear loose fitting scrubs. Dont wear t-shirt under. Dont wear mask on tightly to face. Try to leave a little better breathing room. Breath via nose . Try to be prepared by reading about the procedure, to decrease your anxiety. When possible, try to sit. There is nothing wrong in taking an occasional brief break if involved in a long case.
