Many respondents suggest making sure surgeons are involved in the trialing and purchasing decisions, as well as in determining the loca- tions of the monitors, so the products truly suit their needs. Others suggest including anesthesia, nurses and techs in the process to account for their specific needs and requirements, including making sure you select the optimal screen size. Larger monitors have hit the market in recent years, and it appears facilities are beginning to tran- sition to big screen surgery; 20% of the respondent reports they have a monitor of 51 inches or larger in their ORs.

"I would like them all to decide on one imag- ing system — and I don't care which one," says Jackie Crowder, CNO at St. Joseph's Outpatient Surgery Center in Phoenix. "I've been doing this a long time, and I am not holding my breath." The stunning views of surgery afforded by the latest screens and platforms might push them to act sooner. As one perioperative serv- ices director says, "Be ready to buy after your surgeons try, because they won't be satisfied with their current equipment."
