Abstract:

Contaminated surgical instruments may result in secondary complications ranging from surgical site infection to death. Consequently, military surgeons need dependable and modern sterilization equipment to ensure surgical instruments are free of contamination and that critical surgeries can be performed in a timely manner. Special Operations Surgical Teams SOST currently use a steam sterilization pre-amendment device that has many distinct disadvantages, which make it unsuitable for use in remote locations. The objective of this project was to design and develop a portable sterilization system for field deployment in remote locations.
