Reed Relays Eliminate Surgical Instruments Left Behind After Surgery

Introduction

Every year billions of dollars are paid out for malpractice suits against practicing medical doctors. Most of these suits involve medical procedures or operations where a problem occurs during surgery. Since blood is ever abundant during surgery it can obscure the area being worked on. Sponges are used to soak up blood pools to facilitate the surgery. These blood saturated sponges placed between tissue can be left behind after the operation is complete. Of course, many times this gives rise to post surgical complications and sometimes death.  Medical electronic designers have come up with a clever way of detecting these sponges potentially left behind in conjunction with using Standex Electronics’s CRF reed relays
