Surgical team members know that staying organized is key to a successful surgery. But they also know it can be easy to forget something in the flurry of activity. Unfortunately, not giving priority to instrument efficiency can be a big mistake. After all, what happens when you can’t get to the right instrument at a critical moment during a procedure? Or, what if it isn’t there at all? Here’s how you can be sure your OR instruments are where you expect them to be every time.
What happens when you forget the OR instruments?
Surgery is a high-stress business where lives can hang in the balance, and seconds can make a difference in patient outcomes. When things are laid out properly and the team has what it needs, things go smoothly. But that doesn’t always happen.
In traditional operating room settings, back tables require OR technicians to stack instrument trays on top of one another. During a procedure, this can make it challenging to locate a particular instrument at a critical time.
What if the instrument isn’t there at all or isn’t where it’s expected to be? If technicians are scrambling to get ready for the next procedure, transitioning an OR may not be as efficient as it should be. It’s possible that the instruments you need for a particular procedure might not make it into the OR due to a lack of communication or standardization.
How the DinamicOR Back Table Solution creates visibility and repeatability
One thing you absolutely need in your OR is instrument efficiency. Your surgical team must have access to the instruments they need when they need them. The DinamicOR Back Table Solution is a comprehensive solution that consists of a multi-tiered Adjustable Back Table, the Durable Drape, and the DinamicOR+ Workflow Management App. The DinamicOR Back Table Solution provides visibility and repeatability to meet the needs of any OR team.
The DinamicOR Back Table allows for four different configurations, letting you arrange the instrument table according to your OR staff’s needs. Because it’s so versatile, you can set up the table to meet the requirements of the different surgical teams and procedures. So you might have a different configuration for a foot surgery versus an abdominal surgery or heart surgery.
The primary benefit of these different configurations is instrument visibility in the OR. With the DinamicOR Back Table, you get 92 percent instrument visibility. Compare this to just 38 percent visibility with traditional instrument tables, and you can literally see the advantages.
The Back Table Solution comes with the DinamicOR+ Workflow Management App, which creates repeatability in the OR. This groundbreaking app allows your team to map preferred instrument tray layouts for any procedures and then repeat those layouts as necessary.
There is no more guesswork when transitioning the OR and no more worries about instruments being in place. This app can ensure the exact instruments are where you need them every time. And the guided walkthroughs provided by the App even reduce OR setup time by up to 33 percent.
