Prevention of surgical site infection (SSI) has been a topic of concern to surgeons. In the operating room, controlling air pollution and shedding of microbes from medical personnel are important measures to prevent SSI.For modern operating rooms, it is no longer difficult to control air pollution, especially the establishment of a laminar flow system, which can significantly purify the air and reduce the bacterial load.In terms of controlling the shedding of microorganisms on the medical personnel's surface, sterile gloves + sterile surgical gowns + masks + surgical caps are sufficient to prevent any microorganisms on the doctor's body from falling off and contaminating the operation area.
