syngo DynaCT, the increased power of the angio tube and the potential for radiation reduction. Apart from those already mentioned, the current hybrid OR users consider that other specialties who could find the room useful include; the transplant team, gastroenterology, gynecology, oncology, interventional neurology, neurosurgery, orthopedics, urology, and thoracic surgery. Some of these other specialties will begin their hybrid room experience upon completion of the new hybrid rooms. If asked what changes they would suggest for a new lab, small modifications were discussed by the different teams. Dr. Roos and Dr. Zachrichsson wish for an operating table, like Trumpf or Maquet, whereas the cardiologists prefer the floating table top of the Siemens OR table. The anesthetic nurses would prefer to be positioned closer to the door to enable easier communication with their colleagues. Many state that the room should be wider but also appreciate that an OR can never be big enough. The theater nurses would like a bigger laminar airflow area with Ekroth joking that the whole ceiling should be laminar air. This would be entirely possible with the floor mounted Artis zeego and enough floor space. All specialties are keen to see the development of a 24/7 hybrid OR servicing patients with uncontrolled bleeding such as ruptured aneurysms and trauma. For these patients, Dr. Roos states that the hybrid operating room would show its real benefit. Currently, logistics don’t allow them to man the hybrid OR out of hours but this is the ultimate goal in order to provide the gold standard of care to the population of Western Sweden at all times.
