Preparing staff

Surgical staff preparation and safety measures are a vital part of the intravitreal injection process. IVEG recommendations highlight measures for maintaining a safe environment for injections. Frank Holz describes IVEG-appropriate attire of the injecting surgeon and assisting staff, including:

  1. use of a gown
  2. use of a mask
  3. hand disinfectant

Preparing the syringe

Syringe preparation must be performed carefully to prevent exposure of sterile equipment to possible contaminants. Jordi Monés demonstrates IVEG-recommended aseptic syringe preparation:

  1. application of filter needle
  2. aspiration of drug
  3. application of injecting needle

Following up with the patient

Certain conditions can arise post-injection. IVEG identified optimal strategies for post-operative care, explained in this video by Sanjay Sharma:

  1. assessing intraocular pressure
  2. providing emergency contact details
