OR AREA

FUNCTION MEETS AESTHETICS

Based on this guiding principle, surgery areas from the HT Group are individually planned, produced and installed.
The latest technologies can always be added or replaced in a very short time thanks to the modular elements,
all installation modules are integrated flush with the wall system in order to meet the very high demands on hygiene.
The wall systems can be fitted with fire, noise and x-ray protection which vary depending on customer wishes,
specific country requirements and the demands posed by each type of OR.

We set new standards by the use of glass as a material.
The macroscopically flat, virtually pore-free surface provides almost no points of attack for germs. Large-format image printing in combination
with appropriate colour concepts and material mix ensure a pleasant atmosphere in the room for both personnel and patients.

CASE STUDY

HYBRID OR

Forward-looking developments and innovations in medical engineering and operating methods make modern, flexibly constructed ORs indispensable. Intraoperative imaging is steadily increasing in importance, as it shortens processes and patient routes and as a result logistics are optimised 
and thus cost efficiency increased. 

Hybrid operating rooms have additional demands compared with standard ORs. In order to meet the specific requirements which an
intraoperative CT scan, diagnostic radiology and radiotherapy demand radiation protection is used with a lead thickness of up to 50 mm.
In comparison with this, the standard lead value for a double wall panel is only 0.6 mm Pb. 

Various diagnostics methods can be put to use in a Hybrid OR, such as MRT, CT or angiography examinations, as a result of which various hybrid devices are required. These range from mobile C-arms to robot-controlled, bi-directional angiography units or MRT devices fitted to running rails. As a result of these large pieces of equipment and the number of personnel involved, it is recommended that a Hybrid OR has a room size of approx. 70 m²; in contrast to this, standard ORs are only planned to be approx. 40 m².

A number of aspects must be taken into consideration in the planning and construction of a Hybrid OR. Not only the requirements for radiation protection must be taken into account but also the type of device, the integration of light and data, imaging and hygiene regulations have a great influence on the planning and installation. The strength of the radiation protection must be adjusted according to the hybrid device installed. Where a ceiling-mounted type is used, a strengthening of the ceiling construction is mandatory in order to bear the weight. Long pathways and amounts of movement lead to a high risk of collision which can be avoided by a clear and accurate 3D visualisation before beginning construction.  

A disturbance in the LAF ceiling may also be caused by a hybrid device and should therefore be taken into consideration in advance and the appropriate action taken, for example, the insertion of an enlarged 3 x 3 m LAF ceiling. 

As imaging in a Hybrid OR requires good picture quality in order to display a true image of the total data, high-resolution monitors are used which are installed by HT flush behind glass for hygienic reasons. 

Hybrid ORs require an interactive planning process, in particular because of the high risk of collision, and 3D visualisation from the beginning of the process. Detailed planning enables the customer to have an exact view of the project from the very beginning of the planning stage. The planning security in terms of the time frame and technical issues leads to a higher cost efficiency and budget security during the planning and construction stage. 

A further cost reduction results from the shortened construction time due to modular walls and the short interruption in the use of the room in cases where conversions are necessary. 

The modular system is also recommended, as flexible wall design, quick and simple installation and replacement of individual wall panels are the only way to design an OR of the future for innovative technologies and new devices.

Building Information Modelling (BIM)

Building Information Modelling provides new approaches for the planning and realisation of both construction projects and the operation of buildings. 
The HT Group supports users of the BIM method with modules and interfaces in the planning. Our BIM components are being continuously developed and adjusted to the latest state of technology. Revit components for your BIM model can be requested using the following contact form. ?We will be happy to answer any questions you may have on the subject of BIM planning.
