Labour and delivery rooms should have dedicated illumination in addition to the general room lighting to accommodate the needs of the delivery team during deliveries and postpartum, and to permit the examination and treatment of the infant in the infant resuscitation area. Recessed luminaires can help reduce clutter in the room and decrease the clinical feel while providing directable light via a wall control or remote. Mobile lights are also an option, especially in retro-fit applications where it’s not feasible to ceiling mount a light. Some practitioners also find a headband-mounted light useful to direct light exactly where needed.

Surgical lights with focusable, dimmable illumination and boom mounted equipment management and gas and power delivery systems are available and configurable to suit your specific applications.
