A Toss Up
I like the notion of OR table portability. With those wheels and the person on top in a driver's position it looks like this thing could me driven from one OR to another in a jffy. This would be perfect for the patient having two different surgeries in the same session. After having that total knee replacement in the ortho suite he could be driven straight to the general surgery room for that much needed hemorrhoidectomy. For added flexibility and quick access to different sites may I suggest the addition of a rotisserie option to this table.
I just hope the anesthetists know how to use those old school ambu bags during transport and can hook the patient back up to the anesthesia machine in the new room before the patient awakens. On second thought, why not just attach a vaporizer to the table for in transit anesthesia?
