4. Place the folded adhesive OP-sheet over the mid-line of the abdomen.

 

5. Remove the rest of the release paper and fix the edges.

 

6. Unfold the drape over the lower part of the body.

 

7. Remove the middle part of the release paper. Place the folded adhesive OPsheet (large) over the mid-line of the chest. Remove the rest of the release paper and fix the edges.
