Presentation: Using technology in the surgical operating room – for education, teamwork, efficiency
Using technology, an environment in the operating block can be analyzed that has not been available before. The functioning and cooperation of the individual and the teams in the operating theatre can be assessed, optimized, and used for educational purposes, and both technical and non-technical skills can be enhanced. The use of technology can also maximize the efficiency of theatre utilization.
