LMD - The future of OR lights
Shift your focus from the light to the procedure. Maintain optimum visual acuity and avoid difficulties in adapting to excessive variations in luminosity.
Sevoflurane consumption in manual vs automatic gas control
AGC technology permits safe and convenient reduction of anesthetic waste by up to 58%.
Road map to Hybrid suite
Optimizing the planning process for designing and commissioning the single-discipline, multidisciplinary and multi-modality Hybrid OR.
Why low-flow anesthesia?
Low-flow anesthesia offers pulmonary, economic and environmental benefits.
Keeping patients’ lungs healthy
Restoring and preserving your patients’ health are the main goals of healthcare. This includes trying to avoid potential postoperative complications related to anesthesia, such as atelectasis.
If all perioperative organ injuries were grouped, they would be the third leading cause of death in the USA. Prevention of organ injury, such as lung damage, could reduce the need for postoperative escalation of care. Learn more about how lung protective ventilation can participate to reduce health-related complications and costs.
Heart lung interaction
Anesthesia-induced lung collapse is a well-known entity which can be avoided by a good ventilatory strategy.
Patient Positioning in the OR
Proper patient positioning is an important prerequisite for a successful surgical procedure. Optimum positioning not only ensures the best possible access to the surgical site, but prevents the long-term consequences of nerve damage or pressure ulcers.
Reducing visual fatigue in the OR
Reducing contrast between the surgical site and surrounding areas improve comfort and visual performance. The most effective surgical lighting will provide a gradual transition between the illuminated area and the operating room lighting to reduce eyestrain.
Brighter lighting isn't necessarily better
Most people have experienced the symptoms of visual fatigue: eyes that feel sore, itchy, or dry. Sometimes our bodies compensate by producing excess tears, causing visual impairment.
Basics of surgical lighting
The right surgical lighting is critical for patient safety and staff comfort. It should be designed to enable the medical team to focus exclusively on the surgical operation.
Hypotension - an unknown risk
Studies show: intraoperative hypotension is a fact. Even short hypotensive episodes are associated with severe complications.
How connected medical devices raised uptime in the OR
For Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children in Northern Ireland, connected medical devices are an indispensable tool for improving operation planning.
