Hybrid Operating Theatres
Hybrid Operating Theatre Equipment Package
Open Architecture Hybrid Operating Theatre Integration
The Hybrid OT layout is clinically driven
The hybrid operating theatre is the expression of advances in modern surgery and has a wide range of clinical applications: neurosurgery, cardiovascular surgery, emergency care, orthopaedic trauma surgery, laparoscopic interventions, thoracic surgery, and endobronchial procedures.
To achieve this flexibility in an operating room a range of imaging techniques is employed: rotational angiography, functional imaging in the OR, 2D/3D registration, fluoroscopy and data acquisition, TAVI, overlay of 3D information on top of 2D fluoroscopy, imaging techniques with a CT or MRI.
The amount of equipment used in a hybrid operating theatre, either fixed or that is brought in depending on the procedure requires careful planning considerations. The operating theatre has dramatically changed: Minimally invasive surgery means that more equipment has to be present in the room, with complex audio-video solutions required, additional to Medical IT, UPS, gases, specialised carts, etc. Multiple hanging Monitors, medical video routers, endoscopy equipment, orthopaedic implant trays, etc have now to find their place on medical pendants shelves, without becoming a hindrance around the operating theatre and allow for large equipment such as C-Arm X-Ray Systems.
Brandon Medical offers a coordinated scheme of equipment and an open architecture approach which allows flexibility in terms of design, with the manufacturing of the equipment controlled by our R&D and Installation Engineer teams. We minimise risk in a hybrid theatre project through better coordination of multiple suppliers, with different professionals on different sites. Typically such complex project involves equipment from different suppliers.
Brandon Medical project team will consider the workflow, to reduce opportunities for collision between the equipment in the room during procedures.
We have expertise in how to integrate HMI to Endoscopic PACS and teaching facilities and how to achieve cost savings by increasing operating theatre throughput and reduce waiting times.
For over 70 years, Brandon Medical has provided healthcare professionals with reliable, high-quality, and affordable medical equipment packages for operating theatres and critical care. Continuous investment in our products allows us to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers, the healthcare industry and the patients it serves.
We are acknowledged experts in medical lighting, medical power & control systems, medical video, and medical AV systems with unique expertise in providing integrated solutions.
We are one of the leading manufacturers of high tech medical lighting, and our equipment can be found in surgeries, clinics, and hospitals throughout the world supported by an extensive distributor network.
Our UK manufactured operating theatre lamps have near-perfect colour rendition, balanced arm systems for ease of movement, and use HD-LED technology which emits a brilliant cold light to reduce heat generation. We also have a range of mobile operating theatre lights. Specialist surgical and examination lighting systems are available, with unique features designed to suit the field.
In addition to healthcare and hospital lighting technology, we also manufacture operating theatre control panels and design solutions for medical AV systems, medical supply pendants, as well as isolated power systems and uninterruptible power systems.
A ‘SMART’ Move for Healthcare Settings Everywhere
Introducing SMART technology into healthcare settings will increase efficiency and streamline operations. Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (SMART) are becoming a prominent feature in hospitals and other built settings, with built-in sensors, data processing, and communication capabilities working together to create a SMART ecosystem that can outsmart traditional digital systems used in operating theatres and other areas of the healthcare estate. Traditional systems have digital components that exist as individual entities, with limited communication for interlocks or basic control. On the other hand, the SMART healthcare platform and SMART-enabled devices create a communication network that allows connected devices to share data locally and with external platforms for analysis, reporting, data logging, and maintenance.Read more
