They assemble both sterile and nonsterile equipment, as well as adjust and check instruments to ensure it is working properly.

They transport patients to the operating room, help position them on the operating table, and cover them with sterile surgical drapes. Technologists also observe patientsí vital signs, check charts, and assist the surgical team with putting on sterile gowns and gloves.
