OP. Sentry / Surgical broadcast design

OP. Sentry
OP. Sentry

Operating room is a high demand medical facility with multi-disciplinary collaboration for a successful surgery. Effective communication is the key to improved outcomes. Unfortunately, most operating rooms have strict dress codes; and most room-to-room communications still rely on yelling or voice broadcasting. OP Sentry is an information and communication device activated by verified hospital ID card. Users can utilize the touch screen and earpiece for essential surgical information and communication. In time of surgical crisis, staff in the operating room can use OP Sentry to disclose current condition and call for help.
