Description

Designing an operating room is a team effort in the same way a successful surgery is a team effort. In this session, an equipment planner, electrical engineer, and mechanical engineer will share their experience in operating room design from an engineering and equipment perspective. Approaching the operating room design process from a systems and equipment perspective to helps ensure that all questions are asked and all decision ramifications are understood prior to rough-in and installation of equipment and engineering systems.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe how engineering systems affect surgical room design.
  • Identify what criteria will ensure the equipment and design meet the needs of your surgical team.
  • Examine options for allowing flexibility in operating rooms.
  • List the decisions required to ensure team understanding and buy-in of the final design.
