Surgical Examination


Recommended Posts

Right now you can lose yourself during surgery if you forget what your last step was for whatever reason. You have to be incredibly methodical and making any mistakes can be costly as your time is limited. A professional surgeon should be able to analyze a surgical site and see what they have done so far and also any blatantly obvious damage or foreign objects in the body.

If you examine a patient with an open incision a status bar should appear and a few seconds will pass, as you analyze the person on the operating table. You have to also target the area which is being analyzed. From here you could see the status of the incision, whether or not it's been clamped with bleeders or if the skin's been retracted. If all of that is done, you get a descriptive few words of what is inside the incision. Broken bones? Ruptured lungs? Internal bleeding? It depends on whether the incision is on the chest or some other extremity.

As this takes valuable time to do, it doesn't make scans and premeditation obsolete. This just gives you a basic way of knowing what's going on in the incision you've made, and how to progress is you've gotten mixed up or if you have to take over where another surgeon left off. Doing this for every single body part would take far too much time and scans are still absolutely necessary.

Bad grammar aside, I want to know what everyone thinks of this idea.

I mean, this would be a nifty little feature if its easily codeable.

Just scroll up in the text log and find your last step.

If you take over for someone due to ssd/malpractice/what have you, you have no idea how far the previous surgeon got.

Usually you can just manage with trial and error. If you cant use the tool, you cant use the tool, and hopefully patient doesnt get smacked for it.

can we talk about how if you need to repair internal organs and bones in the ribcage, you have to

open and separate the ribcage
fix the organs
close the ribcage and apply bone magic to seal the BADLY DAMAGED BONES TOGETHER
CAUTERIZE THE INCISION(!?!?!??)
RE-OPEN THE INCISION(!?!?!?)
APPLY BONE MAGIC AND BONE SETTER AND BONE MAGIC(YOU COULD HAVE DONE THIS EARLIER!?!?)

On topic. It's basically just examining a surgery and seeing what's been done with the incision and also what organs/etc. are damaged in that area

That is never the issue though, never has it been either. You apply one set of bonegel for the cut you made with the saw, and another set of gel+setter+gel for the actual fracture before you seal it up.

So you apply gel twice in a row to start it. Interesting.

Otherwise, you can see how my original topic is useful, outside of this random discussion. I am just wondering what type of coding this would entail.
