A Guide to Surgery In General

All surgery requires the set of surgical instruments in the Operating Theatre, along with an operating table. In general, only Surgeons and the Chief Medical Officer can (ICly) perform advanced surgery. Remember to let each step complete fully, else you risk harming the patient.

Ghetto Surgery

If you can't find an operating table, have no fear, there are other ways to fix people up. Any table will work! Click twice on a player with grab intent to put them in an aggressive grab and click on a table. Be sure to tell them to rest, otherwise they might automatically get back up mid-procedure. Note that you have a 1/3 chance per step to make a mistake and injure the patient rather than advancing the procedure. While tables are more available anywhere metal is on hand, deploying the patient on a roller bed is preferable with only a 1/4 chance to fail.

NOTE ABOUT GHETTO SURGERY

Performing this as a crew member and a non-antagonist one (unless the situation really calls for it. If you have any questions, you're free to ahelp it) might possibly lead to action being taken against you by the internal security team or IAA, which would result in your character in being 'fired' or disciplined.

Surgical Tools

Surgical tools are very hard to get and it is best to keep them in the operating theatre. However, if the worst happens and some tools disappear, you can order more in a surgery crate from cargo, and most can be made with an autolathe.

The following are the standard surgical tools most doctors will need:

Standard Tools:

  • Scalpel.png Scalpel
  • Hemostat.png Hemostat
  • Retractor.png Retractors
  • Saw.png Circular saw
  • Cautery.png Cautery
  • Bone gel.png Bone gel

  • Sterilemask.png Sterile mask
  • LGloves.png Latex gloves
  • Traumakit.png Advanced trauma kit
  • Nanopaste.png Nanopaste

  • Mousetrap.png Mousetrap
  • Fork.png Fork
  • Cigarette.gif Cigarette
  • Lighter.png Lighter
  • Rods.png Metal Rods
  • Wrench.png Wrench
  • Knife.png Kitchen Knife

Infection

Wear gloves and wash your hands before every surgery. Failure to do so will result in giving your patient an infection which, if left untreated, can be deadly. Apply ointment to the afflicted areas quickly if you fail to wash your hands before starting surgery.

Prepping for Surgery

Please ensure that your patients are properly diagnosed and scanned before starting the operation, and that all medications and personnel needed for the procedure have been prepared.

  1. Find a suitable OpTable.gif operating table, unless you're willing to risk Ghetto Surgery.
  2. Make sure you're wearing LGloves.png latex gloves and a Sterilemask.png sterile mask.
  3. Ask the patient to strip, or clickdrag them onto your body and click on all of their items to remove them.
  4. Grab.png Grab the patient and click on the operating table to lay them down on it. Alternatively, ask them to lie down on it.
  5. Check the Crewmonitor.gif Operating Computer to ensure the patient is positioned properly; if the monitor does not show the patient's vitals, the surgery will not work.
  6. Pick up a BreathingMask.png medical mask and Anesthetics.png a tank of sleeping agent.
  7. Clickdrag their body onto yours to view their inventory. With the medical mask in your right hand, click on the "Nothing" link at the top beside "Head (Mask)". In a few seconds, you will equip them with the medical mask.
  8. Place the sleeping agent in your right hand, then click the "Nothing" link in their inventory window beside "Back" to equip it on their back.
  9. A new link will appear beside the sleeping agent called "Set internals". Click on it to turn on the gas. It will force them asleep in about 5 seconds. You are now ready to proceed with surgery.
    • You may need to clickdrag their body onto yours again to refresh the window to actually see the option to enable their internals.
  10. Make sure you're set on the Help.png Help intent.
  11. Use a sink to wash your hands. Unclean hands can result in an infected wound. This is treatable with ointment.

NOTE: If anyone is pulling on the patient, the surgery will not work properly! Make sure no one is pulling the patient!

Surgery List

There are many different types of surgeries out there to perform. Sometimes it will be necessary to have the patient hooked up to an IV or someone on standby to inject medications during the procedure.

Opening a Surgical Site

The first steps of most surgeries.

  1. (Optional) Complete Prepping for Surgery.
  2. Aim for the location in the Damage zone.png Damage Zone.
  3. Use the Scalpel.png scalpel to create an incision.
    • If the patient is Vaurca, use the Drill.png drill instead.
  4. Use the Hemostat.png hemostat to stop any potential bleeding.
  5. Use your Retractor.png retractors to lift up the skin.
