HÀ NỘI — Three hybrid operating rooms, the first of its kind in Việt Nam, have been officially put into use at Hà Nội’s Thanh Nhàn Hospital.
This is part of the project of upgrading Thanh Nhàn Hospital, which has been approved with a total investment capital of more than VNĐ665 billion (US$28.5 million).
Speaking at the ceremony on Sunday, director of the hospital Đào Quang Minh said this is the first hybrid operating room in Việt Nam to be equipped with an integrated operating room system and advanced image diagnostic facilities with the most advanced robotic arm.
Doctors can process diagnostics and immediate surgical or interventional treatment in one spot the hybrid operating room without moving the patient during surgery.
This will help medical interventions easier, time-saving and reduce the risks of infection for patients during the transport of patients from the operating room to other rooms.
The hybrid operating rooms allows to perform a variety of complex and intensive surgical and interventional procedures in cardiac, vascular, neuro, and electrophysiology.
There are four screens in each hybrid operating room, which help doctors perform surgery. The rooms are equipped with a ceiling arm system instead of being placed on the floor in order to increase the operating room space and reducing cleaning time.
Chairman of the city’s People’s Committee Nguyễn Đức Chung said Thanh Nhàn Hospital was a key medical facility of the city that needed to be invested in advanced techniques and equipment.
Currently, doctors are being trained to maximise the effectiveness of equipment to serve the medical examination and treatment needs of people. — VNS
