CLINICAL CHALLENGE

OR efficiency without compromising patient safety and satisfaction

The variation in turnover times from 10 up to 60 minutes1 and the improvement on non-surgical process time by up to 30% when using additional surgical equipment2 are just a few of the wide range of factors that significantly influence your OR workflow.

Delays can occur:

  • Before surgery

    During the operating room setup when cleaning and moving equipment.3

  • During surgery

    When adjusting or repositioning the microscope.4

  • After surgery

    In scope of documentation and organization.3

Patient safety plus efficiency, together they contribute to the overall quality of care.
