MAQUET focuses on supporting hybrid operating rooms

Maquet USA : 12 December, 2011  (Company News)
MAQUET is restructuring the company's US Sales and Services Unit to meet the broader needs of customers across all areas of clinical care. As part of this restructuring, MAQUET now offers a comprehensive disease therapy team dedicated to servicing customers who are building a Hybrid Operating Room (OR).
An estimated 100 hospitals in the United States currently have a Hybrid OR, and the number is expected to increase by 15 percent or more over the next few years.  With Hybrid OR's a top investment made by hospitals today and approximately 60 percent of all US hospitals planning for one, Hybrid OR's represent a rapidly growing market.

"In a Hybrid OR, the cath lab doubles as an operating room so a patient undergoing a cardiac catheterization procedure can be quickly moved to surgery if required," explained Niv Ad, MD, Chief of Cardiac Surgery, Director of Cardiac Surgery Research, Inova Heart and Vascular Institute, Fairfax, Virginia, USA.  "Hybrid OR's offer the potential for improved patient outcomes, as they allow physicians to perform a full range of procedures within one setting and eliminate the need to move a critically ill patient to a different room of the hospital."

MAQUET's new Hybrid Surgery Group will partner with Philips Medical and Siemens Medical to provide comprehensive therapy solutions for this growing market, including a surgical table that can be fully integrated with the imaging system,  as well as ceiling booms, cardiac perfusion pumps, intra-aortic balloon pumps, anesthesia systems, surgical lights and OR data integration for advanced surgical suite control.  Sophisticated, and fully integrated, this HYBRID Operating Room is now available from a single source supplier.   

"MAQUET is the single-source provider of comprehensive Hybrid OR solutions, with more than 10 years of experience leading the development of Hybrid OR's for medical centers around the world," said Raoul Quintero, President, MAQUET US Sales and Service Organization.  "With the creation of our new Hybrid Surgery Group and through our partnerships with the most advanced imaging partners, we are committed to helping teams of clinicians effectively plan for and introduce this new approach into their hospitals."
