Surgical success is something that does not depend 100% on the human factor since several basic structural conditions can influence this process. One of those exigencies is the surgeon’s illumination requirements within the operative field, as good illumination intensity, uniformity, light color, and the reproduction color fulfilled at minimum thermal irradiation of the light source.
It is there, where the use of surgical lights in operating rooms, begins to play a crucial role in the procedures; therefore, they illuminate the surgical area for optimal optimization of small low-contrast objects at varying depths in incisions and body cavities.
Surgical lights are limited to reduce shadows and minimize color distortion and functioning during prolonged changes in time without emitting excessive heat, which could cause discomfort or dry tissues in the surgical area.
However, with the simple installation of the critical lamp, it cannot be guaranteed that it will be a 100% safe element in the operating room; within its installation should be taken into account:
- Hygiene: surgical lights in operating rooms must have a high-quality, solvent-free coating, consisting of a smooth, high-gloss surface, completely free of pores, and highly resistant to disinfecting products.
- Mobility: for its correct operation, you must keep the weight low and reduce the moment of inertia, which facilitates the movement of the lamp. The suspension of the same must allow unlimited freedom of movement, in three dimensions, allowing the movement of light to positions as extreme as required.
- Safety: any element that requires electrical energy in an operating room must comply with all common international safety standards.
At IASS Ingeniería we have Skytron surgical lights, whatever the hygiene, mobility, and safety parameters for operating rooms; If you want to know more about these, contact us!
