Power quality in hybrid operating theatres

If you told a NHS director of finance that they could reduce patient operating times and reduce the time that in-patients spend in hospitals, they’d most likely snap your hand off. This could soon become a reality with the introduction of hybrid operating theatres, which combine high end imaging equipment with a traditional surgery environment. However, there are several considerations that must be made to make the investment a success, as ...
