Armboards typically consist of a padded board or platform that is attached to the operating table. The patient’s arm is placed on the board, and straps or Velcro fasteners are used to secure it in place. The padding helps to distribute pressure evenly and minimize discomfort or pressure ulcers.
The primary purposes of using an armboard during surgery include:
- Immobilization: By securing the patient’s arm, an armboard helps prevent unintended movement that could interfere with the surgical procedure or compromise patient safety.
- Protection: An armboard provides a barrier between the surgical site and the patient’s arm, reducing the risk of accidental contact or injury during the operation.
- Accessibility: The proper positioning of the arm on an armboard allows surgical teams to access the operative area with ease, ensuring optimal visibility and maneuverability.
Armboards come in various sizes and configurations to accommodate different patient populations and surgical requirements. They are typically made of durable materials that can be easily cleaned and disinfected to maintain a sterile environment.
