Patient Safety in the Surgical Environment: Expert talk LIVE from an Operating Room with Prof. Tomasz Banasiewicz

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand – How OR surfaces with integrated pressure monitoring can provide new insights into safe patient positioning and pressure injury prevention

  • Learn – How real-time visual pressure images and data from Continuous Skin Monitoring can be used to increase patient safety during and after surgical procedures

  • Experience – Feedback and learnings from actual scenarios using pressure mapping to continuously monitor skin

In this expert talk, sponsored by XSENSOR Technology, Professor Tomasz Banasiewicz will discuss and present the role of the surgical table in safe perioperative patient care and the operating room as an integrated and safe environment, with the ultimate goal of achieving zero pressure injuries or infections during surgery.

Without Continuous Skin Monitoring, patients immobilized during prolonged surgical procedures can experience pressure injuries to skin and nerves, such as pressure ulcers, perioperative nerve injuries, or surgical site infections. These injuries can cause serious complications requiring extended hospital stays, therefore proactive positioning and monitoring is key to prevention.

Register today for this webinar and get in-depth insight into how pressure mapping systems, like XSENSOR’s ForeSite OR, can help decrease the number of pressure injuries and increase patient safety in the operating room.
