The role of a biomedical engineer in an operating room is to maintain the operability and proper functioning of all medical equipment inside the operating room.

Although I had been called to repair the anesthesia machine, the first thing I did was to check all the equipment inside the operating room. Then, when I checked that all the equipment was working properly, I started to check the anesthesia machine.

After finishing the work and verifying that everything was working well, I went to the coordinator of the surgical area to inform her that my work was ready.
