The Role Of RF Detection Systems In Preventing Retained Surgical Sponges (RSS)

June 22, 2021

NEVER EVENTS like Retained Surgical Items (RSI)  occur too often in Canada. The risk increases with the duration and complexity of a procedure, the number of surgical teams and sub-procedures, blood loss volume, and increased surgical counts. Distraction, multi-tasking, and time pressures are often cited as a root cause when a sponge is unintentionally left in a patient. With 22% of retained surgical sponges (RSI)  left during delivery, this webinar will review the published evidence supporting the use of Situate Detection Systems in both the OR and for vaginal births.   

Learning Objectives:   

  • Review Retained Surgical Item (RSI) rates in Canada
  • Identify the risk factors associated with increased risk of RSS and the root causes
  • Discuss evidence in support of supplemental technology to reduce RSS in the OR
