State-of-the-art Operation Theatres & Intensive Care Units – Inauguration – 27 October 2012.

27th Oct 2012

The usual impression of operation theatres is an air conditioned room with a door that has a red light above the entrances with the sign “Do Not Enter”.

This is the most important area as it is where treatment takes place. The biggest reason for failure of any treatment is infection. One million bacteria per square inch are required to cause an infection. However, in procedures involving introduction of implants into the body, only one thousand (and not one million) bacteria can produce an infection and lead to failure of the treatment.

The operating theatres at MIOT International are equipped with every possible innovation to bring down the risk of infection to zero level.

The main way bacteria cause infection is through air pollution and contact contamination.

MIOT has reached new heights with state-of-the-art Operation theaters, breaking the general stereotype on them. This facility unique to MIOT Hospitals in Chennai, is the result of intellects in this field with single minded dedication on providing quality healthcare to patients across Globe in World-class standards at an affordable cost. Every step taken is to ensure safety handling of patient and error free surgical procedure, which is MIOT\’s way of providing healthcare.

MIOT has invested 50 crores to create 58,000 square feet of the most modern theatre complex housing ten bacteria free theatres.

  • The entire floor and walls are painted with ‘epoxy’ bacteria and fungus resistant paint.
  • The walls and ceiling are flat, free of pores and joint-less, making them 99.9% bacteria free.
  • The wall and ceiling panels can be removed, sterilized and put back.
  • Laminar clean air flow from the ceiling with sophisticated HEPA filters prevent dust, bacteria and particles entering the theatre and keep the air fresh by circulating bacteria free air 300 times a minute.
  • To prevent dust collection in wires, wheels, etc, the entire equipment is suspended from the ceiling. These are the only theatres in India with three ceiling pendants which mean all the equipment for anaesthesia and surgery is not in contact with the ground. This provides a dedicated floor space for movement and a clutter free environment.
  • The LED lighting system offers “cool” lighting both for patient and surgeon comfort during longer procedures. Inbuilt laser pointers guide the surgeon to precise spots in difficult to access wound fields.s

Discipline has been second nature at MIOT. Our staffs pass through an air shower before entering the operating room and all prosthetic implantation is done with the operating surgeon in an astronaut hood type attire to prevent contamination from doctor to patient.
