Our expert says:
In addition to the possibility of injury should the ring hook to some portion of the drape or on the theatre bed itself, there is a risk of burns if an electrosurgical unit (cautery machine) is used. If it can't be removed, the theatre sister should definitely be informed, so that they can try to isolate the ring from the skin and cover it with a plaster.
