Mark Moore, a nurse anesthetist for over 30 years, had a novel idea while prolonging anesthesia during a leg surgery. The nurse was struggling to lift the heavy dead weight, dropped the leg and then had to re-lift, re-swab, and re-hold the leg in the air for the required 3+ minutes for the alcohol to dry.
Moore thought, “why didn’t we just soak the patient’s leg in a sealed bag containing chlorhexidine and alcohol in the OR holding area, then wheel him in when the doctor was ready”?
