Operation rooms in a hospital need to function as a unit, along with their environment, equipment, and devices. In addition, they need to provide a comfortable working environment for the surgical staff. Modular Operation Theatres satisfy all the conditions and accommodate all necessary functions in the healthcare industry.
Differences between Modular Operation Theatres and Conventional Operation Theatres
There are different types of modular operation theatres in India. Hospitals and medical institutions have slowly shifted toward modular OT over the past few decades to provide a high-functioning operating environment. Talk to experts at Sai Seva Service, a leading conventional and modular operation theatre manufacturer in India, for more information.
What are Conventional Operation Theatres?
Traditional or conventional operation theatres are constructed by independent vendors, so coordination between them is always a risk. Because of the lack of standardization and quality control, manufacturing on the job site increases the project’s costs and lengthens the timeline. The desired temperature and humidity cannot be provided independently in conventional Operation Theatres.
What is a Modular Operation Theatre?
An operating room that is prefabricated within the premises of a hospital is known as a Modular Operating Theatre. In the last few decades, this facility has gained popularity, offering hospitals a solution to optimize their surgical services by providing a sterile working environment and high-quality care. The facility is based on a modern concept that uses all the latest technology to provide a sterile working environment. Modular OT offers the highest quality care for patients.
Salient Features of Modular Operation Theatre
A Modular Operation Theatre (MOT) is an innovative operation theatre with the most innovative facilities in the surgical field. In general, Modular OTs use prefabricated wall panels and ceilings with laminar flow systems, hermetically sealed doors, anti-static flooring, and more. Modular OT offers many advantages not commonly found in conventional OTs, which makes it a preferred option for hospitals.
Here are a few reasons why modern-day hospitals are switching to setup a Modular Operation Theatre:
Laminar Air Flow (LAF)
An air purification system in the modular OT design supplies fresh air to the operating area. In order to reduce the number of harmful microorganisms, it produces a continuous flow of bacterium-free air. In the operation theatre, the exhaust air passes through the inbuilt unit and is purified by HEPA filters before being sent to the OT room at the specified velocity.
Anti-bacterial Wall & Ceiling Structure
Modular Operation Theatre manufacturers use various materials for the wall and ceiling panels, including acrylic solid surface, glass, and stainless steel painted with bacteriostatic properties, as well as PCGI panels with bacteriostatic properties. This ensures 24-hour protection against bacteria, fungi, and mold growth. It is easy to install, maintain, and clean PGCI panels because they are joint-free.
Automatic Hermetically Sliding Doors
In order to reduce bacterial contamination, Modular Operation Theatre doors are equipped with sensors and electronic automation. These automated doors can be installed with different types of switches, sensors, and displays depending on the hospital’s requirements.
All-In-One OT Control Panel
An OT Control Panel is a comprehensive and electronic control panel containing all the controls of an operation theatre. This OT integrated Control Station displays positive air pressure, temperature, humidity, LAF parameters, six gas alarms, OT and ambient light control, a stopwatch, etc.
Surgery Recording System
Two cameras are provided with the Modular OT for simultaneous recording during the surgery. Additionally, these recordings are available in the hospital’s LAN network, DICOM converter, and viewer.
Modular Operation Theatre setups typically include hanging pendants on the wall that ensure hygiene and provide a wire-free environment for surgical staff.
Patient Data Management System
Different types of Modular Operation Theatres in India provide an integrated, centralized system for storing large amounts of patient information. The system monitor displays today’s planned surgeries, as well as their real-time statuses throughout the day. Additionally, it can also display patient reports with recorded surgeries.
High Voltage Equipment and Remote Cabinet
In modular OT design, high-voltage equipment in a separate enclosure allows maintenance with little disturbance to other systems as possible. A remote cabinet is a special facility that consists of operating lamp transformers, remote relay cards, electrical distribution equipment, and circuit protection equipment for all circuits within the operating theatre.
Pressure Relief Damper
Pressure relief dampers prevent cross-contamination of air from clean and dirty areas. The strategically placed pressure relief damper ensures that the correct amount of air flows into each room. An air pressure balancing system is present in the OT to maintain positive pressure inside. As a result, modular operating theatres deliver an outcome of continued research performed to justify and fulfill fundamental requirements such as cleanliness and humidity.
Prefabricated and other types of Modular Operation Theatres in India offer a world-class, high-quality surgical and healthcare environment. In addition, they use cutting-edge technology and the latest in innovative techniques—guaranteed to provide a positive outcome for any patient!
