The endoscopic OR is equipped with a universally applicable surgical table in the center of the room, paired with surgical lights above and a variety of imaging technologies to aid in procedures, such as colonoscopy. The room is equipped with an anesthetic ceiling supply unit at the head end, a specifically equipped surgical ceiling supply unit at the foot end.
The area of the operating room for this type of endoscopic intervention should be about 40 m². Because of the high requirement for bacteria-free air in the operating field, the operating room should be designed with an LAF outlet or individual air outlets. The room’s bacteria-free air supply is thereby ensured by terminal HEPA filters (H13/H14). Exhaust air and/or circulating air treatment should be provided for this operating room. Germ transmission into adjoining rooms is prevented by the use of negative pressure.
