double setup

double setup

a nursing procedure in which an obstetric operating room is prepared for both vaginal delivery and cesarean section. The circulating and scrub nurses lay out the equipment required for both procedures, which may include a vacuum extractor, forceps, and cesarean section packs. The scrub nurse remains scrubbed until the infant is delivered but does not participate unless a cesarean section is performed.
