China Market Report for Surgical Booms 2016 – MedCore
Surgical booms were introduced to the operating room (OR) environment in the 1990s. Initially, surgical
booms were installed in order to reduce the clutter caused by having multiple carts surrounding the
surgeon and the operating team.

Before integration became a trend in the operating room environment, booms were not utilized to their full
potential due to inefficient ergonomics. With the advent of integration in the OR, floor plans are being
designed ahead of construction. This allows boom placement to be integrated with the rest of the OR,
allowing for optimal boom functionality and maximized usage. In addition, booms are continuously
developed to be smaller and more flexible, with an increased weight capacity. Recently released surgical
booms have the ability to rotate up to 360 degrees, include brake systems and have increased arm lengths.
Originally, surgical booms were designed to be mounted from the wall or the ceiling in order to utilize
room space and support operating room equipment. However, modern surgical booms are mounted almost
exclusively on operating room ceilings. Consequently, a sturdy ceiling support structure must be in place
before a surgical boom can be installed in an OR. Since installing such a structure is expensive, surgical
booms are generally installed in newly constructed operating rooms or ones that are undergoing a major
OR booms are included in every integrated OR, although there are significant differences in style between
manufacturers. Typically, an integrated OR will have two boom arms for surgical lighting and displays,
respectively, which together are referred to as surgical booms, and an anesthesia boom for gas, electricity
and an anesthesia machine. Hybrid rooms may have five or more booms. Usually these hybrid rooms
include multiple equipment booms on top of an anesthesia boom and a utility boom.

European Markets for Integrated Operating Theaters 2016 – MedCore
The principles of operating theater (OT) integration are based on concepts that were established in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Originally, the concept of an integrated OT consisted of a surgeon who would operate on a patient located on a central surgical table with all the necessary equipment available on mobile carts operated by nurses. However, the advancement of technology in the late 20th century precipitated a change in how OT integration was approached. Modern integrated OTs were introduced to the market place in 1992 and focused on video routing and the distribution of video signals from one camera to multiple monitors. Since then, the concept of integration has evolved and integrated OTs often include high resolution video displays, multi-modality connectivity, centralized touch screen control and digital information archiving that often allows the OT to exchange information with external locations and enables the efficient placement of ergonomic equipment.
China Market Report for Hybrid Operating Room Technology 2016 – MedCore
Some integrated ORs can include an imaging system such as a C-arm, which allows for intra-operative
imaging, or a navigation system; these are referred to as hybrid rooms.
These operating rooms provide versatile solutions that save hospitals critical time and provide flexibility
to perform open and minimally invasive surgeries. Also, in the same room, cardiovascular, orthopedic,
spine, neurosurgical and vascular procedures can be done with the additional flexibility to utilize the same
operating room space for open and other general purpose surgical procedures, when the clinical space is
not being used for complex procedures requiring use of a C-arm and specialty imaging table.
