Effective communication is essential both inside and outside of the operating room. Inside the O.R., a high degree of coordination between individuals is necessary to lower risk-adjusted morbidity and avoid adverse events3. During surgery, external collaboration can be key to achieving optimal outcomes, however, clinical experts may not always be available to attend. Witnessing surgeries enriches medical students’ education, but an increase in traffic in the O.R. can also mean an increase in risk of infection for the patient4.
With dozens of workflows, processes and tasks happening simultaneously, even in the most organized O.R.s, a high degree of coordination and clear communication between all personnel involved is essential.
To keep all members of the surgical team on the same page—from nurses to anesthesiologists to surgeons—Brainlab has developed tools that are accessible from all O.R. displays.
With fast full HD-SDI streaming, students can watch surgeries in real time outside of the O.R., allowing them to witness more cases more often and minimizing the additional risk of infection. Streaming also enables the surgeon to share their latest techniques and findings during academic events, congresses or expert meetings.
