Secure power for operating theatres
It is claimed that this secure power distribution solution for hospital operating theatres delivers 99.9998 percent electric power availability.
Schneider Electric has released a secure power distribution solution for hospital operating theatres that delivers 99.9998 percent electric power availability to help ensure patient safety, while increasing the efficiency of medical and maintenance personnel. The solution comprises a tightly integrated and pretested electrical switchboard, uninterruptible power supply and a monitoring system that is compliant with all applicable regulations and standards.
A touch panel screen in each operating theatre presents environmental conditions, the status of medical gases, and visual and audible alarms on the occurrence of an insulation or electrical fault, enabling fast decisions by doctors and nurses. Maintenance personnel are simultaneously alerted by mobile phone or pager, enabling them to respond quickly. Supervisory personnel benefit from real-time views of conditions across all operating theatres and recording of all electrical events and environmental parameters for 100 percent traceability and reporting in support of accountability for patient safety.
