OR Medical Abbreviation

OR stands for Operating Room. It is a specialized hospital room where surgical procedures are performed.

The OR is equipped with advanced medical equipment and supplies, including surgical instruments, anaesthesia machines, and monitoring equipment, to support the surgical team during procedures.

The surgical team typically includes a surgeon, anesthesiologist, nurses, and other healthcare professionals who work together to perform the procedure and ensure the patient's safety.

Surgical procedures may be performed for a wide range of medical conditions, including injuries, infections, tumours, and other abnormalities. Some procedures may be performed as outpatient procedures, while others may require an overnight hospital stay.

After the procedure, patients are typically monitored in a recovery room or other hospital unit to ensure a safe and comfortable recovery.
