Present Day Challenges of Integration and Control for the Operating Theatres of the Future

Next generation of surgical robots are ready to enter the market, or already had. Their design has been guided by the needs of patients, surgeons and surgical teams. It is now the task of Health Estates Managers and engineers to seamlessly and effortlessly integrate these technologies.

The Operating Theatre has been dramatically changed: Minimally invasive surgery means that more equipment has to be integrated and controlled than before, with complex audio-video solutions required, additional to Medical IT, UPS, gases, specialised carts etc.

Health Estates Managers and Engineers are facing challenges in integrating the new technologies whilst having to build in efficiencies such as flexible use of operating theatres, instead of fixed, dedicated specialisms, all the while having to implement compliance such as HTM 06-01 in the UK and other current regulatory and recommendatory requirements, which continuously and rapidly change.

The sheer number of variables increase the risk associated with any operating theatre project. Compounding on the complexity of the project, the solutions need to be future proof, flexible in order to allow for various BMS platforms and development of new technologies, whilst delivering a user-friendly interface for the clinical staff: engineers cannot and should not be required during surgical procedures for troubleshooting – a nightmare scenario.

Whilst we agree on the above points, we need to consider and ask the question: is integration of the operating theatre equipment with the building management system necessary, a nice to have or purely hindrance – and should be avoided at all costs?

 

Learning outcomes:

·         De-risking of operating theatre projects

·         Considerations of usability of operating theatre control systems – User Experience for Clinical Staff

·         Is integration between operating theatres and building management systems necessary?

·         Future – proofing for cost savings

Mediclean® UCV

Modern hospital hygiene focuses its interests in air conditioning on a limited protection zone, in which airborne germs must be excluded rigorously from operation wounds, and in which patients may continue to pose concrete dangers.

Mediclean® the first of its kind in the UK, improves patient safety and surgical outcomes by providing unique benefits to hospital designers, surgical staff and maintenance engineers.

Using air curtain technology, Mediclean® is able to constrain the air in the clean zone and separate it from the surrounding “dirty” air. It offers a patented continuous particle monitor (CPM) system which accurately measures airborne particles caused by surgical smoke or entrainment during surgery. The Mediclean® CPM system is the first in the world that allows staff to “see” how clean the air is during surgery by displaying the results in simple visual alarms.

Mediclean® is designed to be fitted completely flush to the ceiling making it easy to position operating lights, medical pendants and imaging machines without obstruction.

Mike Rimmer, Operations Director Brandon Medical Company Limited, has been selected in The Manufacturer Top 100 2019

Britain’s manufacturing heroes named in Liverpool

Mike Rimmer, Operations Director Brandon Medical Company Limited, has been selected in The Manufacturer Top 100 2019 publication.

“Brandon Medical, as UK designer and manufacturer of medical equipment, are thrilled to find out that Mike Rimmer has been selected in The Manufacturer Top 100 2019. Mike’s passion for both manufacturing and next-generation opportunities is electrifying and truly an inspiration for the entire team and the numerous schools and colleges where he has gone to spread the word about modern manufacturing in Leeds, UK”

The Manufacturer's annual awards for the 100 most inspirational individuals working in the UK industry were announced last night at a gala reception at Exhibition Centre, Liverpool.

Mike Rimmer tells his story: “I graduated with an honours degree in applied chemistry from Wolverhamton University in 1993. I joined Brandon Medical as operations director in 2011, and immediately embarked on an operations improvement programme that transformed the fortunes of the company. In 2017, I set up an internal STEM team to promote manufacturing to schools, colleges and universities in the Leeds City Region as part of the Leeds Manufacturing Festival in 2018 and 2019. We really need to demonstrate the many benefits of joining the manufacturing industry, and all the opportunities available, to the youngsters coming out of education and into employment. What qualities must future leaders have? Future leaders must be able to demonstrate the many benefits of joining the manufacturing industry, and the opportunities available to the youngsters coming out of education and into employment.”

The annual Manufacturer Top 100 awards scheme is run by The Manufacturer magazine, in partnership with Cranfield University, one of the country’s top centres of business education.

Now in its sixth year, The Manufacturer Top 100 project, run by The Manufacturer magazine, in partnership with Cranfield University, one of the country’s top centres of business education, publicly recognises the most dynamic leaders and innovators in manufacturing. Its goal is to help dispel popularly-held myths that vibrant manufacturing in the UK is a thing of the past. 

Awardees are drawn from every walk of UK industry, from top floor to shop floor. From Young Pioneers who are establishing a new generation of makers in UK industry, to Bold Investors in New Markets developing new export markets for British goods. From the Inspiring Leaders and Drivers of Cultural Change, to the Innovators and Unsung Heroes, these are the people who put the Great into British manufacturing.

They are selected from hundreds of nominations for the examples they set to young people aspiring to a career in industry; 100 unique and uplifting stories of struggle, grit, determination and success against all the odds, personal tales of individuals helping to drive UK manufacturing forward – and to change popular perceptions of careers in manufacturing and draw young people into sector.

Nick Peters, Editorial Director of The Manufacturer and of The Manufacturer Top 100 report commented, “The individual stories in the report published today (available from www.themanufacturer.com) are a compelling reminder of how strong and vibrant UK manufacturing really is. We need to keep saying that, because as a nation we seem to harbour the notion that no one in the UK makes things anymore, and young people are discouraged from considering careers in manufacturing. The truth is we do make things – we are the world’s 9th largest manufacturing nation – and careers are very well paid. But there are too few skilled young people coming through the system. It is on behalf of that new generation that we do this. We want to break down the decades-old prejudice against manufacturing. We want parents to get excited about recommending a career in manufacturing to their offspring, not see it (so erroneously) as an occupation of last resort. We must not let the prejudices of yesterday poison the opportunities of tomorrow.”

Making the Invisible, Visible – Airborne Particle Monitoring and Control Systems Integration with Ventilation Canopies for Improved Infection Control and Higher Patient and Staff Safety

Making the Invisible, Visible – Airborne Particle Monitoring and Control Systems Integration with Ventilation Canopies for Improved Infection Control and Higher Patient and Staff Safety

For many years, we have been able to achieve a high standard of hygiene in hospitals and operating theatres in UK and elsewhere in Western Europe. However, intensifying cost pressures, the shortage of skilled surgical staff and the increasing frequency of multidrug-resistant germs (MRSA) are now causing problems. Existing standards will therefore no longer be adequate in the future, and the risk of patients being exposed to infection during surgical operations will rise.

Airborne particles are a critical factor which have a direct effect on the hygienic standards of the modern operating theatre and their significance is easy to explain: The fewer particles in the air, the fewer germs can be deposited on these particles, any particle above >0.5 microns are able to support viable bacteria which can lead to infection at the wound site.

The traditional measurement provided by a single annual test is simply not sufficient, once calibrated it is “assumed” that the performance of the UCV will not differ drastically over a 12-month term but there are many factors which can directly affect the performance.

Continuous, real-time monitoring - with visual indicators- allows for implementation of improved procedures, risk minimisation and cost efficiencies.

Brandon Medical team offers support and training on:

·         How to design and implement custom measures and renewed processes based on continuous airborne particle monitoring during surgical procedures, especially orthopedic

 

·         Role of visual indication of airborne particle load during operations for staff training and lasting behavioural changes in order to achieve higher patient and staff safety

 

·         How to cut energy costs and noise load through automatic, continuous airflow adjustments based on real-time monitoring of airborne particles.

Brandon Medical Develops i2i: smart solutions for operating theatres

i2i stands for “isolated to integrated” and has been developed at Brandon Medical’s research and development department in Leeds, UK 

The operating theatre environment has dramatically changed. Minimally invasive surgery means that more equipment has to be integrated, controlled and managed. It is now the task of health estates managers and engineers to seamlessly and effortlessly integrate these technologies, all the while having to implement HTM 06-01 compliance.

Health estates managers and engineers are facing challenges in integrating the new technologies while at the same time incorporating new efficiencies (such as flexible use of operating theatres) and new regulatory and compliance requirements, all of which continuously and rapidly change.

i2i stands for “isolated to integrated” and has been developed at Brandon Medical’s research and development department in Leeds. It consists of a range of smart, digital solutions designed to support and empower engineers to mitigate major electrical risks. i2i is being embedded in medical and electrical devices to allow for automated testing and data collection, which can be read via either Medicontrol Intelligent Theatre Control Panels, BMS or stored in a cloud. Mobile device applications have been designed to allow engineers to have immediate access to readings.

i2i takes further and complements the integration of the operating theatre equipment provided by Medicontrol Intelligent Theatre Control Panels.

Brandon Medical aims to empower engineers by creating a smart operating theatre, which uses different types of electronic Internet of things (IoT) sensors to collect data and then use it to manage assets and resources automatically.
