Pathology plays a central role in the process of diagnosis and therapy planning and is an important partner for treating physicians. Sumetzberger's pneumatic tube system especially benefits the intraoperative frozen section examination. A direct connection between surgery and pathology enables the transmission of tissue samples in just a few moments, the results of which further determine surgical procedure.
Shortening of OP times
In practice, 30 to 40 minutes elapse before the results of a frozen section examination are available; This is largely due to the long transport distances. During this time, the surgeons must interrupt the operation, prolonging the total duration of the operation and occupying surgical capacity and financial resource. Through the direct connection of Sumetzberger pneumatic tube systems with pathology and Operating theatres, transport times are reduced to a minimum and operating times are shortened.
Increase of patient safety
Shorter waiting times for intraoperative instantaneous section contributes to shorter operation times, reducing the strain on patients during anaesthesia.
It is no longer necessary for the hospital staff to run errands. Sumetzberger pneumatic tube systems provide 24/7 cost-efficiency through continuous operation.
