All image sources, such as endoscopes, microscopes and OR field cameras, regardless of manufacturer, can be connected to the Tegris system thus guaranteeing flexibility in terms of endoscopy and imaging equipment.
In this way, modern, new or further developed devices can also be easily integrated into the operating room environment at
a later date.
Defined workflow for increased safety Innovative functions, for example, a navigation area individually adapted to aid the surgeon in their workflow. The user interface thus enables individual steps, from A through to Z, to be carried out safely. Interfaces to internal information systems, for example, an HIS or RIS, enable all patient data to be made available at the touch of a button. This can then be viewed by the entire OR team on all monitors. The integrated safety checklist designed to increase patient safety based on WHO principles is an additional benefit.
Modularity brings efficiency
"Over the years, we have fitted several hundreds of operating rooms around the world with OR integration technology. Tegris is the result of the experience gained on the basis of user feedback“, says Bernd Binder, Product Manager for OR Integration at Maquet. The mapping of optimum workflows and the associated safety for patients and surgeons forms the foundation of the concept and, at the same time, brings about excellent efficiency. This is made clear by the multi-faceted modular ways in which the systems are used and which are characterised by a high proportion of software. In this way, the hospital is able to integrate additional components without major installation work and the associated OR downtime. The required functionalities are simply installed by MAQUET Service on request, even via remote access or by the client themselves. Tegris replaces the AV Conference and AV Compact systems and is available as of July 2012.
