Research Content:

COVID-19 pandemic made an enormous impact on medical care, and it is no exaggeration that it has given the opportunity to review the facility operations. As surgical operations take on the foundation of hospital management, this report covers the usage of medical equipment dedicated to being used at the operating room such as electrosurgical knife, ultrasonic solidifying and incision apparatus, anesthetic machine, surgery supporting robot, angiography device, operating room lighting, as well as the evaluation of total 36 manufacturers of medical equipment.
