SMS e-library to show live surgeries

JAIPUR: Now, the resident surgeons would be able to see live surgeries performed by eminent doctors from the operation theatres (OT) of Sawai Man Singh Hospital as the surgery department has developed an e-library on the premises.
HoD of the surgery department Dinesh Jindal said, "We want to connect our e-library with our OT, this would help our students to study various kind of surgeries watching them live." The newly developed e-library has books on surgery written by notable doctors, journals and videos of surgeries. "Videos are important as they help in imparting practical knowledge to the students. We are trying to bring more videos of surgeries performed in prominent hospitals like AIIMS." The surgery department plans to connect its e-library with other hospitals so that the resident doctors could see the live convention on latest technologies organised in other hospitals. "There would be a code, which the other hospitals would provide us. Through that code we would be able to see the convention live on surgeries organised in the other hospitals," he said. The e-library has computers and also projectors, where around 40 resident doctors could access the library at a time.
SMS hospital superintendent LC Sharma said that the e-library could be used for saving records of operations, could be used in future for reference of the cases. He said the authorities plan to open such e-libraries in other departments too.
