Managing director at Bender UK, Gareth Brunton, examines the advances in integrated theatre technology that are ‘led by the need for seamless communication and sharing of data and images’.
Integrated technology is fast becoming a vital part of the way that operating theatres function in modern hospitals. That advanced technology brings together the increasingly complex elements that make up today’s operating theatres to create an environment of seamless communication and functionality. Those elements may include clinical equipment, audio and video communication, environmental, ventilation, and lighting controls, and data retrieval and display systems. For Bender UK, an added dimension to this rapidly evolving equation is ensuring the resilience of the integrated operating theatre with Medical IT ‘no-fail’ critical power systems and UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) battery back-up systems.
Integrated theatres must deliver optimum performance in terms of serving the needs of clinical staff and ensuring the safety of patients, and delivering this new generation of facilities requires an extraordinary level of expertise and technical knowledge, allied with meticulous project management.
