Abstract:
Abstract presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Today, in the OR, the challenge has moved from creating a latex safe environment to creating a latex free environment. This shift in clinical practice brings many questions to the forefront. What is the difference between a latex safe and a latex free environment? Is a latex-free environment a reality given today's knowledge and resources? How do I, as a perioperative practitioner and patient advocate, assure the safety of a latex sensitive patient while in my OR? Are there clinical ramifications to any of these decisions? This presentation addresses the reality of creating a latex free clinical environment. It will discuss the evidence-based knowledge and decision-making necessary to equip you and your team to be successful in this meeting this challenge.
