Human factors and ergonomics in the operating room

Ergonomics is the application of psychology and physiology to design an object, processes and systems with the focus of increasing the safety and comfort of human interaction and is divided into physical, cognitive and organizational ergonomics. This chapter provides a summary of human factors, including cognitive and organizational ergonomics, with a primary focus on physical efficiency in the operating room. Physical pain and discomfort are common among surgeons and other operating room personnel. Proper ergonomics in the workplace can prevent injuries and increase employee morale, performance and job satisfaction. Some relatively practical fixes include proper device placement, visual considerations, and device design.
