Executive Summary

The Centre for Evidence-based Publishing (CEP) of the UK's Purchasing and Supply Agency (PASA) has just published a buyer's guide to operating tables. The nearly 100-page report appraises the 55 tables that comprised the entire UK market in early 2009. It has sections on the technical, operational and economic considerations, including a review of the various pressure-redistributing table surfaces designed to help prevent the development of pressure ulcers during surgery. The report also features supplier contact details and the EU's procurement procedures. More than 8.6 million main surgical procedures were performed in England in 2007-08.
