Summary

The establishment and working of the operation room (OR) needs specialized planning and execution. Apart from the surgeon's comfort and ease of viewing images with multiple screens, modern ORs must have in-built data retrieval, and a recording and relay system for transmission during conferences. ORs must be spacious to allow easy movement of various equipment, such as C-arm fluoroscope, ultrasound-guided machine. Hanging booms for anesthesia and endoscopic instruments help avoid crowding on floor. This chapter gives details about space management, organization of hanging booms, and how to place viewing screens for the comfort of the surgeon. Specific efforts are made to give information about cable design, wiring network, establishing the control room, data retrieval from HMS, and data transmission to remote places.
