AGUN GONZALEZ, Juan José  y  RODRIGUEZ BERGES, Oscar. Is it possible to have a fire in an operating theatre?. Med. segur. trab. [online]. 2010, vol.56, n.218, pp.72-84. ISSN 0465-546X.

We might think that an operating theatre is the sanctum sanctorum of a Hospital. The 'safest' place within a very much controlled environment in all aspects. But it is a contrasted fact, although not always published, that fires in operating theatres exist and that they are normally caused by situations in the operating theatre itself. During an operation there is the possibility of having a fire in the most dangerous moment for the life of a patient and in the most critical zones of a hospital. The objectives of this research are the following: - To emphasize the possibility of fire in an operating theatre - To analyse the possibilities of risk - To detect hazardous elements and behaviour - To analyse the preventive measures to be adopted
