Anesthesia Booms for Hybrid Operating Rooms

Anesthesia Booms, otherwise known as ceiling supply units and pendants, save space, create a more orderly working environment, and increase efficiency. By keeping cables,  devices, and medical gas lines off the floor, Anesthesia booms ensure better access to the patient, a more flexible room configuration, and provide a safer working environment for hospital staff.

Ideally, your anesthesia booms should accommodate every surgeon's preferences and every surgical specialty. They should increase a room's flexibility by letting you position a patient however the surgeon wants. You should be able to reorient the room in seconds. And they should shorten turnover times because the items you use all the time will always be in the room. The efficiency of moving the anesthesia boom out of the way when you're not using it, but the availability of immediately having it ready is a definite plus with room turnover time. Never having to plug in or unplug the equipment and moving slave monitor cables from one side of the room to another is another time saver.
