Royal Liverpool University Hospitals

The Royal Liverpool University Hospital is one of UK's top teaching Trusts, supported by strong, established links to both the University of Liverpool and John Moores University. The hospital provides a range of specialist services for North West England and is the regional centre of excellence for nephrology, renal transplantation, cancer surgery, vascular surgery, hematology and pathology.

Part of the hospital has been under refurbishment to provide its staff and patients with the very latest medical technology. Included in this, is the transformation of one of the wards into a brand new Intensive Care Unit.

Brandon Medical were appointed to help RLUH design their Critical Care Unit and to help maximize space in thework area. The new ICU suite includes 3 isolation rooms and a 5 bay ICU room. Two pendants encapsulate the patient bed, the first system is a customised pendant mounted from a fully articulated arm. The pendant has been specially designed to hold a greater number of services and equipment compared to standard systems. This includes gas outlets, volumetric pumps, syringe drivers and an infusion rack which are easily accessible around the patient bed.

The second pendant is mounted onto a unique Vertical Service Column (VSC) which has been designed specifically for the Trust. The VSC has been designed to support the ceiling structure and to maximise the equipment that can be loaded onto the pendant. The pendant is fitting with medical gas outlets and sockets, avoiding trailing gas hoses and cables which are hazardous in a complex ICU environment. The pendant has also been fitted with Brandon's Coolview 35, a multi-purpose examination light. The Coolview 35 Examination

light is ideally placed where the light can reach the patient and be manoeuvered around the patient bed. C35 can be adjusted to give an intense spot light or flood light. This means the light is virtually suitable for any examination.

The Trust has also been fitted with Brandon's IPS and UPS emergency back up systems.
