At the upcoming Medica 2010 in Düsseldorf, Maquet will be demonstrating its expertize in building complex operating rooms, which can be used for a variety of procedures, as well as for conversions between them. Just imagine working in a coronary angiography suite that can be urgently converted into an open heart OR! Such capability is being offered by Maquet, which will be showing off a live “hybrid OR”, fully equipped and featuring the company’s Magnus OR table and the angiography equipment Allura Xper FD 20 by Philips.
Klaus Christian, Global Project Manager Hybrid OR of Maquet: “The objective is to adapt the room concept and the technical equipment optimally to the work-flow in the OR. This means that, for instance, for the combination of workplace for heart surgery and cardiology, optimal working conditions for both disciplines must be maintained. For this purpose, the positioning of the OR table, the angiography equipment and the other systems are coordinated with the interdisciplinary OR team to achieve optimum workflow.
