When a sales rep assists with device implant surgery

Unknown to most hospital patients, it is common practice in surgeries requiring device implants for the device manufacturer's sales representative to be present during the operation. Sales reps can help doctors practice using new technology for the first time on a patient. Reps tell doctors which implant to use. They arrive early at the surgery suite and then set up all of the equipment needed to implant the device. Orthopedic surgeries can require sales reps to bring in eight trays or more, each with 20-60 different instruments per tray. Only the sales reps know what most of the instruments and hardware are for, including how and in what order to use them.

A lack of evidence doesn't always mean you're not ill

Most people will deal with a misdiagnosis at one point or another during their lives. For example, someone who has blood work performed might end up diagnosed with anemia or another condition only to find out later that it was not an accurate test because they hadn't eaten or prepared properly.
