The upper extremity value of mini C-arms in the ER and OR


Interestingly enough, I’ve found mini C-arm systems to be equally useful and applicable to both the operating room and emergency room. The OR is a confined space in which workflow and efficiency are key. While bigger, more intrusive C-arms can take up valuable real estate, impeding the staff and confining the patient, mini C-arms give way to a more streamlined operating environment. For intricate hand and upper extremity cases, maneuverability and accuracy are crucial. As for the ER, mini C-arms allow me to promptly address a patient’s needs, especially for cases like small fractures. For example, if a patient comes in with a wrist fracture, I can use the mini C-arm to perform a reduction right there in the emergency room, rather than having to send them to the radiology department and await results before getting to work. Across a wide variety of situations, mini C-arm systems improve efficiency and results, while also allowing me to use less radiation.

Whether in the OR or the ER, today’s mini C-arm systems provide high-quality imaging and a superior range of motion, benefiting clinician accuracy and patient outcomes. As an orthopedic surgeon, I’m focused on being as effective and efficient as I can, and I never want to be second guessing the images I’m capturing while my patient is under anesthesia. Using modern mini C-arm technology, I can trust the alignment and images I see during procedures and do my job with precision and certainty. I encourage other surgeons to embrace new technologies like mini C-arms – not only am I more efficient in my procedures, but more importantly, I’m delivering the highest-quality of care to my patients.
