Brandon Medical Transform Training for Surgeons
Newcastle Surgical Skills centre is transformed by brand new Medical AV
By: Sunita Dhaliwal
The Centre led by some of the most eminent and experienced surgeons in the country, delivers teaching and training in specialist surgical procedures including minimal access and orthopaedic surgery. The Centre is a national resource, used to teach, research, assess and examine the skills of the surgeons, enabling them to stay at the forefront of their ever-changing profession.
With the desire to transform the Hospital’s teaching centre they installed Brandon Medical’s Symposia® Audio-Visual System. Symposia® delivers a complete range of medical AV services, targeting a number of users and applications. The system revolutionises the way healthcare facilities record and transmit all types of procedures and has a significant impact on clinical training and development.
The 4 clinical training tables at the Centre are equipped with Brandon Medical’s Galaxy Ultra Operating Theatre lights with integrated cameras and monitors. A control system links the 4 tables to a 46” LCD screen, allowing a wide range of sources to be displayed. This includes live surgery, room cameras and recorded media.
The control system also connects to two 46” LCD screens in the seminar room via wireless LAN. The surgeons use wireless for 2-way audio through the seminar room speakers. The system has a high level of interconnectivity both within the Centre and video conferencing capabilities with links for external participants.
