The medical field is home to ever-changing equipment and technology. When you provide your staff with the best possible resources, they can achieve the best possible results. Just as everyone in an operating room has a distinct role to help get the job done, so does every piece of equipment. Here’s some of the essential equipment in the operating room that serves to make each procedure a success.
Lights are an obvious yet crucial tool for the operating room. Surgical lights provide bright white light that illuminates the surgical site and eliminates shadows. They must stay lit for hours without overheating. For this reason, LED or halogen lights are common OR options. Many ORs have different lighting systems—such as ceiling-mounted lights, mobile surgical lights, or surgical headlights—that help provide comfortable illumination for the various procedures your surgeons need to perform.
Digital Integration Systems
The medical field is constantly evolving thanks to technological advancements. Part of the essential equipment in the operating room is a digital integration system, which allows all of your various pieces of equipment to communicate with each other. Digital integration systems help coordinate the various cameras and imaging systems. They have remote control access to various pieces of equipment, making OR management easier for staff before, during, and after the procedure.
Everything in the operating room revolves around the surgical table. The type of table depends on the type of surgery, but they all serve the same purpose: keeping the patient secure and comfortable while allowing the staff to perform to the best of their abilities. There are a number of surgical table accessories that can make the procedure easier for both patients and staff. Cushions, safety straps, and head or leg supports make surgical tables more comfortable for the patients—a necessary addition for long surgeries. For medical staff, heightened adjustment settings and accessibility are key to making the procedure easier.
