Differentiating Surgical Equipment and Supplies

Right now there is no text available to show all these items to the students and which they can take home to study with. Judith Schatte, RN, CNOR, CRNFA, CST, Brevard Community College, Cocoa, Florida A full-color compendium of surgical equipment and supplies in one spiral-bound text/atlas! Here's all of the information your students need to know about surgical equipment and supplies-their use and their specifications- in one easy-to-use reference with more than 800 full-color photographs. The first chapter reviews aseptic technique. Each subsequent chapter addresses related equipment and supplies. Full-color photographs and detailed specifications complement the comprehensive in-text coverage. Photographs of small supplies like sutures and drugs are shown side-by-side to highlight their distinguishing features and to emphasize the importance of the information on their labels. Photographs also illustrate the relevant components of large equipment, such as tables and anesthesia machines. Where appropriate, discussions address the proper placement of equipment for optimal use and access during procedures. Whatever the surgical specialty, it's the perfect reference for students or new staff to use to learn to recognize the vast array of equipment and supplies found in the O. R. today.

During and prior to the Civil War, musical training occurred at the "School of
Practice for U.S.A. Field Musicians" at Governor's Island, New York. The
earliest reference about the school is found in a book "Ten Years in the Ranks,
U.S. Army" written by a young soldier age 12, Augustus Meyers. He wrote about
his experiences at the school.

The living quarters were sparse, consisting of double bunk beds with insufficient
space for comfort or convenience. The beds were large sacks stuffed with straw.
The meals consisted of boiled salt pork and beef, rice soup, bread, potatoes, bean
soup, and coffee.

The daily duties began reveille with the fife and drums performing at the official
entrance to Governor's Island. At 0800, the guard mount ceremony commenced
followed by a period on uniform and equipment maintenance. School started at
0900 till 1100 followed by musical training from 1100 to 1200 and 1400 to 1600.
The young drummers and fifers performed at retreat. This schedule occurred
every day except Saturday when all instruction ended at 1200. In addition to
board, lodging and musical training, the boys received $7.00 a month.

The School of Practice studied from “The Drummers and Fife Guide” by George
G. Bruce. A board of musicians assembled by the War Department adopted this
book as the official text for the school. This manual was used until the end of the
Civil War.

Seven years later in 1869, a board of appointed officers investigated the system of
training field musicians. The board approved a method book called "Strube's
Drum and Fife Instructor" by Gardiner A. Strube.


Five weeks after Abraham Lincoln's inauguration, Confederate soldiers fired on
Fort Sumter. The 1st Regiment of Artillery Band was present during the
bombardment and surrender. This band was also known as Chandler's Band of
Portland, Maine a civilian band volunteering its' service to the regiment.

The first band to suffer casualties during the Civil War was the 6th Massachusetts
Regiment Band. On April 19, 1861, the band arrived by train in Baltimore, MD.
As the band left the station a mob marching through the street attacked the band.
The band fled, abandoning all equipment, as local Union sympathizers took
bandmembers into their houses. The band suffered 4 deaths and 30 injured

As the war began, the military was as divided as the country. Many of the Army's
finest officers resigned their commissions, returned home, and joined the
Confederacy. Enlisted personnel from the southern states deserted the Union
Army to fight for the South.

Faced with severe personnel shortages, President Lincoln called for 75,000
volunteers to serve three-month enlistments. Three weeks later, he realized that
the shortages would continue and called for 40,000 three-year enlistees and 40
additional regiments to be recruited, organized, and equipped by the states.

The Federal government allowed the states to establish their own recruiting and
organizational policies. Many volunteer regiments recruited bands. Civilian
bands with such famous conductors as Patrick Gilmore (whose band served with
the Massachusetts 24th Volunteer Regiment) volunteered their services to Union
regiments. Band recruiting was so successful that, by the end of 1861, the Union
Army had 618 bands and more than 28,000 musicians.

On July 22, 1861, Congress passed "An Act to Authorize the Employment of
Volunteers to aid in Enforcing Laws and Protecting Public Property." Section 2
authorized each Regular Army regiment of infantry two principal musicians per
company and 24 musicians for a band. Each cavalry and artillery regiment was
authorized two musicians per company or battery. Each Artillery Band was
permitted 24 musicians and each Cavalry Band was permitted 16 musicians. The
Army was following the same practice as Weiprecht in Germany with distinct
bands for each branch.

In response to a Congressional inquiry, the Paymaster General of the Army
reported the following pay scales for musicians:
First-Class $ 34.00 per month
Second-Class $ 20.00 per month
Third-Class $ 17.00 per month
Drum Major $105.50 per month

The federal government assumed the cost of volunteer regiments during the Civil
War. With the increase of the number of regiments, some members of Congress
became cost conscious. The cost of maintaining bands for all regiments was a
burden Congressmen did not want to bear. On January 31, 1862, Congress asked
the Secretary of War, Simon Camero, to evaluate the cost of each band and could
bands be dispensed without injury to the public service.

The Secretary of War reported the average cost of maintaining an artillery or
cavalry band was $9,161.30 and the cost of maintaining the larger infantry band
was $13,139.40. It was also reported 26 of 30 Regular Army regiments and 213
of 465 volunteer regiments had bands. The

A Manual of Simulation in Healthcare

Medical simulation is a relatively new science that is achieving respectability among healthcare educators worldwide. Simulation and skills centres have become established to integrate simulation into mainstream education in all medical, nursing, and paramedical fields. Borrowing from the experience and methodologies of industries that are using simulation, medical educators are grappling with the problem of rapidly acquiring the skills and techniques required to implement simulation programmes into established curricula. This book assists both novice and experienced workers in the field to learn from established practitioners in medical simulation. Simulation has been used to enhance the educational experience in a diverse range of fields; therefore a wide variety of disciplines are represented.

The book begins with a section on the logistics of establishing a simulation and skills centre and the inherent problems with funding, equipment, staffing and course development, and promotion. Section two deals with simulators and related training devices that are required to equip a stand-alone or institution-based centre. The features, strengths, and weaknesses of training devices are presented to help the reader find the appropriate simulator to fulfil their training requirements. There is a guide to producing scenarios and medical props that can enhance the training experience. The third section covers adult education and it reviews the steps required to develop courses that comply with 'best practice' in medical education. Teaching skills, facilitating problem-based learning groups and debriefing techniques are especially important to multidisciplinary skills centres that find themselves becoming a centre for medical education. The manual concludes with guides for the major specialties that use simulation, including military, paediatrics, CPR and medical response teams, obstetrics, and anesthesia.
