GATOR: connecting integrated operating room solutions based on the IEEE 11073 SDC and ORiN standards
- 52 Downloads
Medical device interoperability in operating rooms (OR) provides advantages for both, patients and physicians. Several approaches were made to provide standards for successful device integration. However, with high heterogeneity of standards in the market, device vendors may reject these approaches. The aim of this work is therefore to provide a proof of concept for the connection of two promising integration solutions OR.NET and SCOT to increase vendor interest.
The connection of devices between both domains is targeted by implementing an application to map device capabilities between the IEEE 11073 SDC and ORiN standards. Potential properties of the respective architectures are defined. The connection was evaluated by latency measurements in a demonstrator setup utilizing an OR light as an exemplary device.
The latency measurements resulted in a similar transmission speed of the GATOR (53.0 ms) and direct SDC-to-SDC (38.0 ms) communication. Direct proprietary ORiN-to-ORiN communication was faster in any case (8.0 ms).
A connection between both standards was successfully achieved via the GATOR application. The results show comparable magnitudes of the communication between the standards compared to the direct standard-internal communication.
