Use of the EggNest requires minimal training. To load the patient on to the table, the Flip shields need to be in the down position (which allows smooth patient transfer from a bed or gurney). When the patient is positioned on the EggNest table, the Flip shields are flipped up. The patient is then draped in a standard fashion, with the drape extending over the Flip shields.
To unload the patient, the Flip shields are placed in the down position after the drape is removed. The patient is then transferred off the table.
