Difficulties Experienced by Surgical Team Members with Operating Room COVID-19 Personal Protective Equipment

Öz:
Objective: During the pandemic, operating theaters were considered high-risk areas because of aerosol-generating procedures and devices. Therefore, the surgical team members had to wear multi-component high-level personal protective equipment to prevent occupational exposure. In the current study, we evaluated the side effects of operating room coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) personal protective equipment. Methods: A descriptive and cross-sectional study was conducted with 203 participants. Side effects in six thematic areas (respiration, vision, hearing-communication, thermal stress, movement-occupational skills, neurocognitive-psychological) were evaluated using a questionnaire and face-to-face interview. Results: The mean age was 32.6±8.4; 55.7% were women and 43.8% were doctors. Respiratory, vision, hearing, and communication limitations were determined as 91.6%, 94.1%, 61.6%, and 93.6%, respectively. Those who reported an increase in sweating, warmth, thirst and skin problems were 96.1%, 95.1%, 91.6% and 85.2%, respectively. Restrictions in movements and sense of touch were 88.2% and 80.3%, respectively. Decreased visual quality and psychological tolerance and increased thermal stress and sweating were higher in physicians (p<0.05). Hearing limitation was higher in nurses (p<0.05). Conclusion: The results showed that the members of the surgical team experienced serious difficulties while working with the operating room COVID-19 personal protective equipment, and that they were not prepared for strategies to deal with these problems. There must be a balance between the protective effects of this equipment and the user side effects. It is recommended that efforts should be focused on designing and producing new user-friendly and suitable equipment for employee health.

Cerrahi Ekip Üyelerinin Ameliyathane COVİD-19 Kişisel Koruyucu Ekipmanlarla Yaşadığı Zorluklar

Öz:
Amaç: Pandemi döneminde ameliyathaneler, aerosol üreten prosedürler ve cihazlar nedeniyle yüksek riskli alanlar olarak kabul edildi. Bu nedenle, cerrahi ekip üyeleri, mesleki maruziyeti önlemek için çok bileşenli üst düzey kişisel koruyucu ekipman giymek zorunda kaldı. Bu çalışmada, ameliyathane koronavirüs hastalığı-2019 (COVİD-19) kişisel koruyucu ekipmanlarının yan etkilerini değerlendirmeyi amaçladık. Gereç ve Yöntem: Tanımlayıcı ve kesitsel nitelikteki çalışma, 203 katılımcıyla yürütüldü. Altı tematik alandaki (solunum, görme, işitme-iletişim, termal stres, hareket-mesleki beceriler, nörokognitif-psikolojik) yan etkiler anket ve yüz yüze görüşme yöntemiyle değerlendirildi. Bulgular: Ortalama yaş 32,6±8,4; %55,7’si kadın, %43,8’i doktordu. Solunum, görme, işitme ve iletişim kısıtlılıkları sırasıyla %91,6, %94,1, %61,6 ve %93,6 olarak belirlendi. Terleme, sıcaklık, susuzluk ve deri problemlerinde artış bildirenlerin oranı sırasıyla %96,1, %95,1, %91,6, %85,2 bulundu. Hareketlerde ve dokunma duyusunda kısıtlamalar %88,2 ve %80,3 idi. Görme kalitesinde azalma, psikolojik toleransta azalma, termal stres ve terlemede artış hekimlerde daha yüksekti (p<0,05). Hemşirelerde işitme kısıtlılığı daha fazlaydı (p<0,05). Sonuç: Bu çalışmanın sonuçları, cerrahi ekip üyelerinin ameliyathane COVİD-19 kişisel koruyucu ekipmanları ile çalışırken ciddi zorluklar yaşadıklarını ve bu sorunlarla baş etme stratejilerine hazırlıklı olmadıklarını göstermiştir. Bu ekipmanların koruyucu etkileri ile kullanıcı yan etkileri arasında bir denge olmalıdır. Çalışan sağlığına uygun, kullanıcı dostu yeni ekipmanların tasarlanması ve üretilmesine ağırlık verilmesi önerilir.
