What is OR Integration?
The OR integration system is a major achievement of clinical medical engineering, which is the core part of hospital surgery and reflects the level of modern hospital facilities. Originated in the 1990s, it has gradually become popular in China in recent years.
The OR integration system is the perfect integration of purification engineering and digital information that systematically integrates all information about patients in a reasonable way, so that surgeons, anesthesiologists, and surgical nurses can obtain comprehensive patient information, more image support, precise surgical navigation, and unobstructed external information, providing an accurate, safe and efficient working environment for the entire operation, as well as a high-quality channel for surgical observation, demonstration, remote teaching, and consultation.
Advantages of OR Integration
- Optimizes the workflow of the operating room
- Improves the efficiency and accuracy of medical staff
- Improve the quality and safety of surgical services
- Increase equipment utilization and reduce operating room operating costs
- Strengthen academic exchanges and cooperation between hospitals
Common Points of Hardware Configuration of OR Integration construction
① All digital equipment and machines can be controlled centrally.
②Try to choose and purchase digital equipment so that control space can be reserved for expansion. The control of operating lights, beds, medical pendants, and other equipment should be considered according to the actual needs of the hospital.
③Try to choose the more advanced electronic equipment in the same series as these devices updates so quickly.
Selection of Medical Pendants
①There are three types of ceiling pendants: endoscopic pendants, surgical pendants, and anesthesia pendants. The anesthesia pendants are indispensable while the endoscopic and surgical pendants can be freely matched.
②The larger the rotation angle of the pendant, the better. The length of the boom depends on the size of the operating room. The long one is better than the short one, and the one with a stronger net load capacity is better.
③The power supply, air supply and negative pressure ports on the pendant are all standards. It is necessary to specifically list the types and numbers of video ports, such as HDMI ports, S ports, BNC/SDI ports, DVI ports, and network ports. In order to ensure the connection with other equipment such as endoscopy system, B-ultrasound, PACS system, surgical navigation, etc., it is also necessary to reserve expandable ports for future use when additional equipment is added.
Selection of the Monitors and Booms
①The monitor installation point should be based on the doctor’s habits. At least one monitor that can be directly viewed around the operating table should be installed to meet the needs of various operations.
②When installing the rotating monitor, pay attention to adjusting this position to a less-used direction to facilitate pushing during surgery.
③A monitor should be set up as the main monitor, and the video signal should be directly connected to the endoscopic system without being redistributed by the video control system to ensure the smooth operation of the surgery when the control system fails.
Audio and Video
① Two-way audio should be selected to facilitate communication.
②The video of the conference hall for academic exchanges is transmitted by optical fiber, which can achieve lossless, low delay, and clear images. Equipped with 2-3 conference halls with transmission function to prepare for replacement in case of failure or real-time broadcast in large-scale meetings.
③Full HD is applied for endoscopy and surgical field shooting, and panoramic camera images are HD.
OR Integration has made outstanding contributions to modern clinical treatment. Heal Force iForce OR integration is committed to the development of an intelligent operating environment, clinical digitalization, and refined management, which is suitable for new smart operating rooms and old operating rooms transformation.
iForce OR Integration
Diversified Customized Surgical Environment
iForce can be set according to the habits of the chief surgeon in different departments (neurosurgery, orthopedics, cardiothoracic surgery, ENT department, etc.) with medical ceiling pendants, surgical lights, and operating table equipped around, which makes the space layout of the operating room more in line with the ergonomic configuration and optimizes the space ratio of medical staff and medical equipment.
Multi-type Information Sharing
Through the DOOR platform of the “Smart Pendant”, iForce is interoperable with the HIS/PACS system in the hospital, and can be connected to the ORC intelligent system, office Web terminal, Demo classroom all-in-one terminal, intraoperative and extraoperative mobile phone, intraoperative and extraoperative tablet End, extra-operative PC end, etc.
Good Open Compatibility
The intelligent system has good open compatibility, modular interface design, suitable for different ports, and is ready for access to more surgical equipment in the future such as endoscopy, C-arm, ultrasound, DSA, etc.
Remote Video Teaching
iForce features high-color gamut, real-time enhanced medical high-definition display screens, which can display PACS, monitors, endoscopes, surgical field cameras, intraoperative C-arms, ultrasound, and other signal sources, and simultaneously connect multiple operating rooms, meeting rooms, offices, and demo classrooms. The data is transmitted in full HD 1080P/60fps, uncompressed, and lossless, which can provide professional images with sharp colors for video teaching in hospitals and remote teaching and consultation between hospitals.
Moreover, Heal Force OR integration system has the function of intercepting, editing, and storing intraoperative audio and video at any point in time, providing convenience for medical staff to write cases and academic research.
