Tuttlingen, 30.04.2020: Saint Paul Hospital in Hanoi is one of the capital’s leading general hospitals and belongs to Vietnam’s Ministry of Health. The district hospital consists of a public hospital and a High-tech and Digestive Center, which was established with four operating rooms in 2016. One of them was equipped with the KARL STORZ premium integration solution OR1 NEO®, one with a basic integration solution and two with ORBITER® ceiling supply units and LEDVISION® OR lights.
OR1 NEO® is a modular system that seamlessly integrates into the OR infrastructure. Not only does it support ergonomic workplace design, it also provides audio/video management, communication, OR control and documentation in one innovative solution. These features can be operated from the monitor panel and nurse workstation, which can be flexibly and independently positioned in the operating room, either next to the surgical field or, to save space, in the OR wall, eliminating the need for a technical room. Saint Paul Hospital opted for the latter option, the OR1™ InWall Solution, whose large screen monitor is protected by disinfectant-resistant glass and can display endoscopic, radiographic and other images in side-by-side or picture-in-picture mode.
“What impresses me about the OR1™ operating theatre is the state-of-the-art equipment. The 3D and 4K visual systems generate images of pristine quality revealing the tiniest blood vessels. These tools allow surgeons to complete sophisticated procedures with much greater ease which ensures that our patients have a better post-operative process”, said Dr. Nguyên Hoàng Hoà, surgeon at Saint Paul Hospital, three years after the installation has been completed. “OR1™ relieves the stress of dealing with the overwhelming quantity of equipment in the operating theatre while working on the patient. Both surgeons and assistants are able to observe the entire OR. We are provided with separate screens which generate amazing visuals."
Due to the positive experiences gained with the KARL STORZ equipment, the Saint Paul’s hospital management decided to invest in another OR1 NEO® integration solution. The installation was completed last year and has been in operation since December 2019. “KARL STORZ has provided us with the tools and technology to perfect our technique and afford us both the confidence and precision to deliver the best patient outcomes”, says Dr. Nguyên Hoàng Hoà.
