Hand-held Robotics for Joint Replacements Smith+Nephew's new CORI Surgical System is a surgeon- controlled robotic platform that doesn't work off of the pre- operative CT-scans or MRIs other robotic and navigation sys- tems require. Instead, the CORI system allows surgeons to create a customized 3D digital model of each patient's knee to determine where the implant should be placed in order to provide optimal function and faster recovery. The CORI sys- tem, which is available for both unicompartmental and total knee replacements, features a small, portable design that makes it well-suited for outpatient surgery. smith-nephew.com 6 4 • O U T P A T I E N T S U R G E R Y M A G A Z I N E • M A R C H 2 0 2 1 Sponge Detection With EHR Integration Stryker has updated its popular SurgiCount sponge detection system with a new surgical tablet that features complete EHR integration. The vendor claims this upgrade as a category first that can better enhance and enable nurse workflow, charting and back-end compliance. After case closure and successful data trans- mission, the EHR can be updated with encrypted data such as confirmation that SurgiCount was used, a summary of the sponge count and the SurgiCount Case ID. The ability to aggregate, track and report all activity provides administrators with a comprehensive look at the life cycle of safety sponges in a facility, says Stryker. strykersurgicount.com Intubating Aid During the Pandemic Zeiss's new NURA video laryngoscope provides high-quality, indirect views of laryngeal and oropharyngeal anatomy, allowing anesthesia providers to put a safe distance between them- selves and patients during intubation. The scope's disposable Macintosh blade has integrated LED illumination and a camera that attaches to a reusable display unit. Zeiss donated the device to facilities in pandemic hotspots before offering them in the consumer market. zeiss.com Product News G r e a t i d e a s f o r y o u r O R
