In Pendant Smoke Evacuations Systems (IPSES) are now being specified in almost all new Australian and New Zealand Hospital projects. The Cockatoo Blue IPSES system has been installed in Melbourne’s Royal Women’s Hospital Complex including Frances Perry House. IPSES was also included in the John Hunter and Royal Newcastle redevelopments and a new variation of the system was developed with the Victorian Royal Children’s Hospital.
As well as new installations the system can be retrofitted into existing pendants and booms with little or no effect on functioning of an operating theatre. These systems have been fitted into Draeger, Trumpf, Esco, Claveguard pendants.
