Here’s a recent set of images I created for OR nurses and doctors. I never really thought of the pressures these people are under. We sometimes joke how nice it must be to work in such a prepared and sterile environment versus a dirty ditch or piles of puke and poop. I had the chance to talk with some OR nurses and realized that in some cases, especially emergency surgeries, the pressure is real and as serious as it gets. When you know your patient and weren’t able to save him the pressure and emotions are sometimes unbearable.
This one is for everyone working in the OR
