Designed around your needs
Leadership in Hybrid OR
We work with you to build a true Hybrid OR that meets your critical needs, an exceptional care environment where medical specialists can work smoothly together. Based on experience from designing over 300 Hybrid ORs around the globe, our comprehensive design and project teams simplify the entire process from initial idea to realization. We work closely with our alliance partners and other third-party vendors to provide a Hybrid OR specifically designed for you.
True Hybrid OR
With the true Hybrid OR from Philips, you can perform a full range of procedures – from endovascular to hybrid to minimally invasive or open surgery – in a single room, virtually without compromise. Based on your procedures, case load, and clinical workflow, we create an integrated design that incorporates lighting, booms, the OR table, monitor configuration, video switching, sterility measures, and the X-ray system. All equipment can be easily moved out of the way to support the workflow of different procedures.
In the changing healthcare landscape, the Hybrid OR allows you to explore new procedures in an environment that offers a high level of flexibility for patients at risk. Your entire medical team can work smoothly together and quickly adapt the room to different setups required for diverse procedures.
“We were looking to design an OR that had dual functionality, where we were able to do both open and endovascular procedures…. I can start with an open case and add endovascular techniques because I have the imaging right there. And if I’m doing an endovascular procedure and there is a problem, then I can open immediately and take better care of the patient.” M.L. Lukens, M.D., Director Vascular Services,Heartland Regional Medical Center, Marion, USA
Creating an exceptional care environment
Now you can focus on the patient without worrying about equipment getting in your way. In a more flexible care environment that is comfortable to work in. The ceiling mounted FlexMove option opens up valuable working space around the patient allowing exceptional patient accessibility. FlexMove works within the rigorous sterility parameters of the Hybrid OR. Seamless integration with the Maquet Magnus OR table provides a smooth patient flow and enhances the capabilities of the Hybrid OR. With the DoseWise program, radiation exposure is low and our unique DoseAware* provides real-time feedback allowing staff to manage their personal X-ray dose exposure. In this flexible, fully integrated environment, the latest IT systems, tools and real-time information are all within reach, making it easier to carry out all aspects of procedures.
DoseWise and DoseAware
Lower radiation exposure and increase awareness with DoseWise and Dose Aware. Like you, we are deeply concerned about high levels of radiation exposure for patients and staff. Our DoseWise program is built into every aspect of the Allura Xper system to enhance X-ray dose protection for patients and staff in the Hybrid OR, while maintaining optimal image quality. We also offer innovation solutions to help you further manage your radiation exposure while working. Our
unique DoseAware* provides instant, time-stamped feedback in the examination room so you can immediately adjust your working habits to minimize radiation exposure. You see when and where X-ray dose was acquired on your personal dose meter so you can take the appropriate action during a procedure. You can
also easily check your exposure level with one glance at the colored display in the examination room. An option allows you to print or e-mail a full X-ray dose report at the end of each examination at the touch of a button.
* DoseAware is not a replacement for the thermoluminescent dosimeter (TLD) as a legal dose meter.
New clinical confidence for complex procedures
You will work with new clinical confidence by having access to superb quality images, unique 3D imaging capabilities, and innovative imaging solutions that support you in the planning, visualization, and live guidance of the most challenging procedures. Philips patented image processing technology enhances imaging in steep projections. Xres and Xper settings reduce noise and make images consistent.
Our innovative imaging solutions support confident decisions in every step of your procedures – from planning to treatment and post-treatment verification. Image fusion that combines 3D data with live X-ray provides real-time guidance. Three dimensional imaging capabilities provide exceptional intra-operative CT-like visualization of anatomy. Market-leading 3D solutions guide the way towards improving conventional procedures and carrying out exciting and rewarding new ones. We offer a number of tools that help you simplify planning and intra-operative decision making using previously acquired CT and MR data to manage the use of contrast medium and X-ray dose.
HeartNavigator simplifies planning, device selection, and projection angle selection before procedures. It uses pre-acquired CT images to create a 3D volume that is overlaid on your live fluoro image. Different virtual device templates can be selected. You can also measure the distance between the ostia coronaries and valve. During implantation, HeartNavigator provides live image guidance to support you in positioning the device.
Dynamic 3D Roadmap
Our unique Dynamic 3D Roadmap tool allows you to re-use diagnostic CT and MR images during the intervention as overlays on your live fluoro image. These richer visualizations provide a clear view of the target area while managing contrast and radiation exposure. You can use multi-modality overlays to verify the placement of devices during a procedure to enhance the quality of the operation.
One room, more value
The Philips Hybrid OR expands your horizons. We think beyond the technology to create a completely integrated operating room that can be configured as a multipurpose space, adding clinical and financial value to your facility. All based on our collaborative relationships with our alliance partners, including MAQUET, Steris, Skytron, and other third-party suppliers. Our experienced consultants from Philips Healthcare Solutions and our project teams can provide a turnkey offering that will help you meet your business goals and keep you at the forefront of excellence.
Increases utilization of your room
Creating a Hybrid OR with Philips unique FlexMove and integrated MAQUET MAGNUS operating table allows you to perform a full range of vascular, cardiac, neuro, or even hybrid EP or trauma procedures in a single space, allowing high utilization. Being able to convert from endovascular to open surgery or incorporate endovascular elements in a surgical procedure can reduce patient transfers or additional operations. This may save operational costs while providing high quality patient care.
Appeals to patients and staff
The hybrid OR gives patients access to the joint expertise of different medical disciplines which can open up new treatment options to them. Patients also benefit from undergoing less invasive procedures which may result in short hospital stays and fast recovery times. Hybrid minimally invasive procedures are pushing the boundaries of medicine. By creating the world class Philips Hybrid OR, you can enhance the image of your facility. This may help you attract more patients to be treated in your unique environment. It may also help in your efforts to employ highly sought after medical professionals. Once operational, Philips provides ongoing training and expert technical support to support a high standard of care.
