Integrated operating rooms typically connect medical devices providing the clinical user a complete control over environment, device setting and digital management of intervention-related data. Consequently, the opportunity to analyse and present data from different perspectives and with different objectives has arisen. The available integrated ORs are so far designed as closed systems, thus connecting coexisting systems from different manufactures e.g. anaesthesia machines and surgical devices is demanding. The purpose of this project is to facilitate data collection from anaesthesiology, patient monitoring and surgical devices. The study is performed on laparoscopic procedures, and the data are going to be recorded at the Schwarzwald-Baar Klinikum (SBK) in Villingen-Schwenningen (Germany). Therefore, this part of the project focuses on the overall architecture for collecting data in the operating theatre at the SBK. In this work, (i) the system architecture (i.e. hardware components), (ii) software architecture and (iii) required protocols for synchronous recording of data in the OR are described. The proposed framework demonstrates that signal recording is possible with variety of devices at different sampling rates during surgical procedure.
