Students visit Operating Theatre at Queen Mary Hospital

BTEC Applied Science students from Christ the King: Aquinas recently had the opportunity to visit the Operating Theatre at Queen Mary Hospital.

Students were able to see many techniques and demonstrations such as basic life support, anaesthetic scenarios, fibre optic intubation techniques, patient positioning, laparoscopic simulation with instruments, orthopaedic power tool usage and the aseptic scrub technique. The students thoroughly enjoyed their day and it inspired many of them to consider pursuing careers in the NHS.
