Title (EN) AMBIENT LIGHTING IN HOSPITAL SURGICAL ENVIRONMENTS
(FR) ECLAIRAGE AMBIANT DANS DES ENVIRONNEMENTS CHIRURGICAUX HOSPITALIERS
Abstract:
(EN) An ambient lighting system for a hospital operating room environment and a method of using said system is described. An apparatus comprising the combination of a translucent sheet and a backlight LED panel or colored light source (colored lamp(s) or LED(s) in an alcove) provides a diffuse light when light from said panel, alcove, or other source is presented to the translucent sheet, is scattered, and represented as unfocused light on the exposed surface of the translucent sheet. Usage of the apparatus in an operating room provides a calming environment. The method and apparatus may be adapted to include wireless control over the intensity, color, and on/off state of the light. Further, usage of known translucent materials provides a sterile and safe surface.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système d'éclairage ambiant pour un environnement de salle d'opération d'hôpital ainsi qu'un procédé d'utilisation dudit système. Un appareil comprenant la combinaison d'une plaque translucide et d'un panneau de DEL rétroéclairé ou une source de lumière colorée (lampe(s) ou DEL(s) colorée(s) dans une alcôve) fournit une lumière diffuse lorsque la lumière dudit panneau, de ladite alcôve, ou d'une autre source est présentée à la plaque translucide, est diffusée, et représentée en tant que lumière non focalisée sur la surface exposée de la plaque translucide. L'utilisation de l'appareil dans une salle d'opération permet d'obtenir un environnement apaisant. Le procédé et l'appareil peuvent être conçus pour comprendre une commande sans fil de l'intensité, de la couleur, et de l'état allumé/éteint de la lumière. En outre, l'utilisation de matériaux translucides connus permet d'obtenir une surface stérile et sûre.
