The goal of this thesis was to create a model for a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) delivered instrument instructional guide that could utilize the information on demand capabilities of a PDA to better explain the dynamic process involved when using a surgical device. The surgical device for this model is an AutoSuture Premium Plus CEEA Single Use Stapler. The model could potentially serve as a portable instructional guide for review and understanding of the proper use of the Premium Plus CEEA Single Use Stapler and a template for the creation of future surgical instrument guides to be delivered on a PDA.
