Heart patients can look forward to a new standard of care as the National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS) introduces hybrid cardiovascular procedures with its hybrid operating theatre (OT). The first in Singapore, the new facility combines the capabilities of a full operating theatre with imaging abilities that allows both the interventional procedure and cardiovascular surgery to be performed in the same setting. This greatly enhances patient safety as the patient just needs to undergo the surgery once. Hybrid procedures can also lead to faster recoveries and shorter hospital stays, saving time and money for the patients.

With its patient-centric setup, the hybrid OT eliminates the hassle of moving the patients to multiple locations, putting them at greater ease and comfort.
