This video system will transmit video footage of an operation from the Inselspital Bern live and in real time. Congress attendees can participate in the surgery virtually while the OR team is available to them for questions and answers. At the same time, transmission will be able to be viewed at BERCHTOLD's exhibition booth in the hall of the Congress Centre. A CHROMOPHARE LED light together with the Chromo Vision camera system and the ORICS communication system will also be shown.
Operations will be transmitted live on the PC monitor of the real-time Telestrator within the OR theatre as well as on PCs and monitors outside. This allows the surgeon to receive visual instructions from the head of surgery or another specialist. In case of unexpected findings, the OR team is able to seek advice from colleagues via headsets. Furthermore, these findings can be discussed subsequently with experts, colleagues or students. ORICS can be quickly and easily installed on standard computers. Video images can originate from an OR camera, an endoscope or other analogue recording devices. Image material remains stored on external media or the server and is available at all times.
The Congress is hosted by EUPSA (European Society for Paediatric Surgery) and will be held from 2nd to 5th of June 2010 at the Culture and Congress Centre in Bern. About 800 international attendees are expected. EUPSA is the largest paediatric surgery organization worldwide with more than 1,200 members. Its mission is to offer outstanding advanced training for paediatric surgeons.
