Communicating with full personal protection equipment (PPE) on can be difficult whilst in an operating theatre environment. UCL and UCLH and partners have been testing a variety of electronic devices to improve the ability of staff to communicate with each other in this setting, including devices provided by Apple and Microsoft. Prof Martin Birchall talks to us about communications challenges in the operating theatre and how technology may be able to help.
