With new technologies, operating rooms (OR) have become increasingly complex. This complexity sometimes impacts turnover times, which in turn impacts OR efficiency and productivity. In this context, surgeons and staff can be under pressure.

The Colombia University Data Science Institute released a study in December 2018 showing that surgeons under stress make more mistakes in the operating room. During stressful moments, surgeons make up to 66 percent more mistakes on patients.

Another study on stress in the operating room looking at perceived stress of operating room nurses and operating room technologists reveals that the highest impact stressful event was "pressure to work more quickly." The authors suggest that making changes to the OR environment could minimize the impact of stressful events and thereby improve job satisfaction and minimize nursing staff turnover.

The benefits of multidisciplinary surgical microscopes

Multidisciplinary surgical microscopes are designed to simply fit different types of surgical activities, environments, and OR teams with different experiences. In this sense, they help to reduce complexity for optimized surgical workflows. Multidisciplinary microscopes offer several benefits including:

 Ease of use

 Ability to change quickly from one procedure to another

 Minimal interruptions and disruptions

 Closer collaboration between disciplines

Multidisciplinary surgical microscopes also allow maximization of utilization and investment. A study published in the Journal of Pediatric Surgery has shown that standardization of operative equipment can result in a significant cost reduction without impacting quality or delivery of care.

PROvido the new multidisciplinary surgical microscope from Leica Microsystems is setting a new standard in your Operating Rooms

PROvido is a next generation multidisciplinary microsurgery microscope for ENT, Plastic & Reconstructive, and Spine Surgery.
