Integrated Digital Operating Room
consolidates medical device control and audiovisual routing
Integrated Digital Operating Room. The Condor control system combines the Condor Medical Control and the Condor Audiovisual Control systems. With the medical control system, surgeons use touch panels and speaker-free, simple voice commands to perform desired adjustments of cameras, endoscopic and other medical devices from multiple locations inside the operating room (OR).
The audiovisual control system enables the distribution of high-quality video, audio and computer signals within the OR, throughout the healthcare enterprise and around the world in real time. This provides worldwide teleconferencing and education capabilities. The system’s open architecture enables clinical choice and flexibility by routing any standard signal from any camera.
The digital networking capabilities of the digital OR enable surgeons to access patient information they require at the touch of a button, reducing time needed to retrieve those data from outside the OR and providing them with a comprehensive view of the patient’s condition. Using the intuitive graphical user interface, multi-format images can be viewed directly in the sterile field, facilitating a comprehensive view of the patient, endoscopic and external cameras, PACS (picture archiving and communication system), C-arm, patient vital signs, navigation and ultrasound. Furthermore, new endoscopic technologies and the OR’s structure, with critical components hanging from the ceiling instead of resting on the floor, facilitate faster clean up and OR turnaround.
These digital OR systems are custom-designed to fit the requirements of each particular project and each set of hospital needs. Moreover, the consolidation of medical device control and audio-visual distribution into a modular, upgradeable platform ensures that the control system is investment-protected for future technological advancements.
A password and view-only configurability of touch panels ensure security, flexibility and support HIPAA (Health insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliance.
