A Guide to Surgery In General

All surgery requires the set of medical tools in the Operating Theatre, along with an operating table. In general, only Medical Doctors and the Chief Medical Officer can (ICly) perform advanced surgery. Remember to let each step complete fully, else you risk harming yourself or your patient.

Ghetto Surgery

If you can't find an operating table, have no fear, there are other ways to fix people up. Any table will work! Click twice on a player to put them in an aggressive grab, and click on a table. However, you have a 1/3 chance per step to make a mistake and injure the patient rather than advancing the procedure. While tables are more available anywhere metal is on hand, deploying the patient on a roller bed is preferable with only a 1/4 chance to fail.

Surgical Tools

Surgical tools are very hard to get and it is best to keep them in the operating theatre. However, if the worst happens and some tools disappear, you can order more in a surgery crate from cargo, and most can be made with an autolathe.

The following are the standard surgical tools most doctors will need:

  • MMI empty.png MMI
  • Drill.png surgical drill
  • Scalpel.png scalpel
  • Saw.png circular saw
  • Hemostat.png hemostat
  • Cautery.png cautery
  • Retractor.png retractors
  • Bone setter.png bone setter
  • Bone gel.png bone gel
  • Autopsy scanner.png autopsy scanner
  • Anesthetics.png sleeping agent
  • BreathingMask.png medical mask
  • Sterilemask.png sterile mask
  • LGloves.png latex gloves
  • Traumakit.png advanced trauma kit
  • Nanopaste.png nanopaste


Ghetto surgical tools:

  • Cable coil
  • Glass shard
  • wirecutter
  • crowbar
  • welding tool
  • screwdriver
  • mousetrap
  • fork
  • cigarette
  • lighter
  • metal rods
  • wrench
  • kitchen knife

Infection

Place on gloves and wash your hands before every surgery. Failure to do so will result in giving your patient an infection, which left untreated can be deadly. Apply ointment to the afflicted areas quickly if you fail to wash your hands before starting surgery.

Prepping for Surgery

Please ensure that your patients are properly diagnosed and scanned before starting the operation, and that all medications and personal needed for the procedure have been prepared.

  1. Find a suitable OpTable.gif operating table, unless you're willing to risk Ghetto Surgery.
  2. Make sure you're wearing LGloves.png latex gloves and a Sterilemask.png sterile mask.
  3. Ask the person to strip, or click+drag them onto your body and click on all of their items to remove them.
  4. Grab.png Grab the person and click on the operating table to lay them down on it.
  5. Check the Crewmonitor.gif Operating Computer to ensure the patient is positioned properly; if the monitor does not show the patient's vitals, the surgery will not work.
  6. Pick up a BreathingMask.png medical mask and Anesthetics.png sleeping agent.
  7. Click+drag their body onto yours to view their inventory. With the medical mask in your right hand, click on the "Nothing" link at the top beside "Head (Mask)". In a few seconds, you will equip them with the medical mask.
  8. Place the sleeping agent in your right hand, then click the "Nothing" link in their inventory window beside "Back" to equip it on their back.
  9. A new link will appear beside the sleeping agent called "Set internals". Click on it to turn on the gas. It will force them asleep in about 5 seconds. You are now ready to proceed with surgery.
  10. Make sure you're set on the Help.png Help intent.
  11. Use a sink to wash your hands. Unclean hands can result in an infected wound. This is treatable with ointment.

NOTE: If anyone is pulling on the patient, the surgery will not work properly! Make sure no one is pulling the patient!
