Intensive Care Bedspace
Intensive Care Bedspace Brandon Equipment Package
Critical Care Bedspace Equipment, Design and Planning
The Critical Care bedspace can be found in the intensive care unit(ICU) which can be referred to as an Intensive therapy unit or intensive treatment unit(ITU) or critical care unit(CCU).
The objective for both the clinical and healthcare estates engineers is minimising the impact on patients and their families in order to shorten recovery times.
The equipment required should not clutter the bedspace, be configurable and allow for flexibility and easy positioning to facilitate 360-degree care with no restriction of access to any part of the patient body for the nurse and physicians.
Brandon Medical Atlas pendants have ample space within the arms to fit correctly gas lines, electric and fiber optic video cables, maintenance-free magnetic brakes, and a wide range of configurable accessories such as shelves, Drawers, perfusion poles.
Innovating ICU pendant systems
- Accelerating recovery times in ICU is in the best interest of the patient and it is our focus for the innovations which we will present. But we have to outline the fact that faster recovery times in ICU means increasing operating theatres throughput.
- Patient hoist to enable movement of intensively treated patients which will aid recovery and speed up recovery times and stays in the ICU
- Separated Ventilator – (screen and actual ventilator) to ensure a compact service console which in turn provides end-users with more space to work in. Also provides a more ergonomic and flexible vent screen usage
- Electro-magnetic brakes providing a more efficient pendant braking system
- All in one, combined patient information system patient entertainment monitor
- Pendant coloured to match existing hospital furniture and provide a homelier looking room as opposed to a distinctly clinical room environment
- Auxiliary drop-down console
Design Philosophies and Considerations: Safe Assessment of Diversity Factors for Medical IT and UPS Systems to Provide Cost Savings
Brandon Medical will design or upgrade Medical IT Supplies (IPS), Uninterruptible Power Supply & Earthing Solutions of a Group 2 Hospital Medical Location (HD60364—7-710&BS7671:2015) for a regulatory and recommendatory compliant solution with high levels of engineering redundancy and resilience while maintaining a commercial design philosophy.
The only proven requirements figure for Medical IT and UPS systems date from 20 years ago, whilst technology has made giant leaps forward, multiplying the number of equipment needed – which means that we do not know current power requirements.
We will consider design philosophies around quantities of bed spaces and power requirements per bed space or per room. Due to obsolete data on recommended KVA the estimates are maximal and not inducive of space, cost, and energy savings.
We will present technical solutions based upon proven knowledge, tried and tested experience and codes of best practice, and how to safely assess diversity factors, taking into consideration section 710 Medical Location Modifications of IET Wiring Regulations 18th Edition.
Resources and technical memoranda for planning and design of critical care units

How can innovative operating table technology transform decontamination?
Hospitals face the challenge of preventing healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs) through compliance with infection prevention policies. Operating tables, which can contribute to secondary transmission, are commonly secured with hard-to-clean Velcro strips. The DIAMOND® operating table, which uses wipe-clean gel strips, offers an innovative solution to support infection prevention efforts. NHS recommendations for decontamination do not specify cleaning underneath operating table casters, and this area is often inaccessible. However, research suggests hospital floors are a source for pathogen dissemination, highlighting the potential importance of comprehensive decontamination efforts.Read more
